We’re not sure what Isaiah Robinson, 21, said to the girls on the Fowler High School (Syracuse, NY) cheerleading squad, but it was nasty enough to start a brawl with some other guys watching their practice. Now, it’s not surprising that Robinson got beat up a little bit. What IS surprising is that another man involved in the brawl, Emanuel Harper, 26, saw this as a perfect opportunity to to get all stabby with three other people, using what police described as a “red-handled kitchen knife.”
No one was seriously injured as a result of the stabbings, but Fowler HS has decided it will no longer hold the annual “Red-Handled Kitchen Knife Giveaway Night” a their football games in the future, just to be safe. Sad, really.
Well, at least the NFL Hall of Famer is honest and only saying what everyone is thinking, right? (Source – SBNation)
There was a time when high school cheerleaders had one job, and one job only: stand at the sidelines during football and basketball games and cheer. Then competitive cheerleading came along and the girls (and sometimes guys) had to spend more time on their “routines” for competition.
Now, apparently, at some schools preparing for those competitive cheerleading events has gotten so time-consuming that the squads can’t–or won’t–be around for the actual games. At Cardinal O’Hara High School (PA) they came up with a unique solution: replace the girls at the games with a “spirit squad” whose actual job is to be on the sidelines for the games.
Not surprisingly, this has not gone over well with some of the members of the cheerleading squad or their parents.
