June 23, 2015

Apparently, that’s the case in Caracas, Venezuela, where the Swiss ambassador has gotten tired of having tee shots from the nearby Caracas Country Club land in his residence (which is technically Swiss territory).

Mexican Cheerleaders Perform Nazi-Themed Routine at Competition
June 15, 2015

You hear about something like this and you think, “Nah, it can’t be what they’re saying it is. Somebody just made a simple mistake, right?” Wrong. You can watch the video for yourself, but someone who does choreography for a cheerleading squad comprised of girls 10-16 in the western Mexican city of Guadalajara, obviously flunked history. Or maybe they just took it in summer school and really didn’t pay attention. But…

Coach Justin Hill
May 1, 2015

Over the past 15 years, we’ve had a lot of strange stories involving high school coaches.

(And then was shocked that anyone was upset by it, saying “Sparrows are like rats with wings.” Yeah, that made it all better.) But this time we have a…

Twelve days. If Robert Dillon, 26, could have only waited 12 more days he wouldn’t be heading off to jail in Britain this week. He’d be a free man with a day job as a math teacher, a cool weekend gig as a soccer mascot for the Castleford Tigers (right) and a 16 -year-old girlfriend. But either he didn’t understand the laws in the United Kingdom regarding teachers having relationships with…

Okay, so we’re not going to say that Joseph Louis Ioime of Ocala, FL had a bad plan. But he had a bad plan. Last weekend, Ioime, 64, met with police at the Baseline Golf Course and told the cops that his golf bag and golf clubs–worth over $2,000–had been taken from his car while it was in the parking lot.
