Sometimes, it’s not a good idea to have your mom at your game, especially when you’re the new star quarterback and you’re not playing well.
Video below, but first, more on the story from the ClarionLedger:
The mother of Southern Miss freshman quarterback Anthony Alford was escorted from the stands at M.M. Roberts Stadium Saturday and charged with a pair of misdemeanors after being arrested by Hattiesburg Police. Lawanda Ann Alford, 38, was booked into the Forrest County Jail Saturday on disorderly conduct and resisting arrest charges. She was ordered from the stands after getting into a loud argument with another fan who was berating her son’s play during USM’s 59-24 loss to Marshall.
Anthony Alford started the game, but injured his foot in the third quarter, and left with the Golden Eagles trailing 45-17.
Usually sports streakers wait until their is a time-out, half time, or some other stoppage in play before running out onto the field. And really, this guy is less of a streaker than a dumbass fan who actually runs onto the field during play in Saturday’s Miami v. Florida State game. He starts about mid-field, heads toward the end zone, takes his shirt off, manages to elude one security guy before being slammed to the ground by another. We have two videos of the incident, both taken by fans in the stands as the network TV crews always cut away from this kind of action.
The first video shows the incident in its entirety. The second video also shows some of the action, but also shows the tackling security guard getting congratulated on the awesome hit by his co-workers.
As some of you might already know, the University of Wyoming lost to the Air Force Academy on October 13 by the score of 28-27 after throwing away a 10 point lead at half time. Coaches hate to lose, especially by one point, but the Cowboys’ coach, Dave Christensen, took things a step further and decided to vent his frustration–post game–in a profanity-laden tirade against rival coach Troy Calhoun. Apparently Christensen thought Air Force had faked an injury late in the game to avoid using a time-out. And, while that may or may not be true, Christensen went WAY over the line verbally, yet still managed to shake Calhoun’s hand.
We’d post the video here, but it’s been pulled from YouTube and the only copy we can find is over at DeadSpin.com. An UNCENSORED version.
In addition to the F-bombs Christensen also manages to throw in a Howdy Doody slam, a “wooo!” and at the very end a “fly boy” crack.
And all of this on Military Appreciate Night at the stadium. Classic.
For his efforts Christensen has been suspended by the school for one game and fined $50,000.
We think it was the Howdy Doody part that sealed the deal.
