Really? We just thought it was the boredom of watching today’s professional baseball product. Read the “groundbreaking” AP story here.
The Ooks Lizard, who appears to have made his own outfit from stuff he found at a thrift store, decided to mess with the opposing cheer squad during their routine before a college basketball game in Lethbridge, Canada. He made one fan angry enough to run out on the court and take him down. No word on whether it was the lizard’s antics, the tension of the impending game, horny-ness for cheerleaders, or simply a burning hatred for bad mascot costumes that caused the tackler to snap.
Why pay for porn when you can just walk up to real high school girls and ask them to take their clothes off for money? That might work in the movies (okay, not even in the movies) but in real life, the young ladies involved are more likely to run and tell the cops, which is what they did in Delaware over the weekend. Police are now looking for the three amigos (one pictured at left) who are described as: Perp #1 – Bald with a black leather jacket and jeans; Perp #2 – long black shoulder-length hair and a long beard, and Perp #3 – third was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and had curly brown hair. If you live in the area and see any of these guys, keep your women-folk away from them and call police.
Here’s the rest of the story from Delaware Online:
Campus police at the University of Delaware are asking the public’s help in identifying three men who harassed a group of cheerleaders Sunday at the Bob Carpenter Center. The three victims were participating in a cheerleading competition when they were approached outside of the building by three high school or college-aged males who offered them money to take their uniforms off, police said.
The cheerleaders were upset by the comments and ran away. The suspects did not appear to have wristbands that would have admitted them to the competition, and the victims did not see them inside the facility, police said.
We know what big field hockey fans most BadJocks readers are (duh!) so it comes as no surprise to most of you how fired up fans get while watching guys in skirts run around a field slapping at a small ball (What, only the girls wear skirts in field hockey? Sorry about that).
Anyway, the fans at the hockey stadium in Morhabadi, India were not pleased with a call made by Raghu Prasad, the “internationally acclaimed hockey referee from Bangalore” (again, duh! everyone knows about Mr. Prasad) went against the home team. Oh no he didn’t!
Something about carrying the ball on the stick instead of slapping at it. As a result, a stroke–yes, a full stroke!–was awarded to the team from Maharashtra (I think their team nickname is the Maulers) which enraged the normally well-behaved fans from Jharkhand (nicknamed the Jugglers).
Well, before you know it, the fans were verbally abusing the referee with taunts about his choice of hair gels and facial moisturizers (although instant replay later showed the made the correct call) and then started pelting the Maharashtra players with bottles and . . . slippers. Yes, I said it: slippers. (Thank God we don’t have video of that carnage!) Can you imagine getting hit with something like that thrown from high up in the stadium? Especially if it’s one of those big bunny slippers with the ears. That could really, really sting.
Well, the slipper throwing got so out of hand the local officials called the game and it they will start up where they left off (minus any slippers) next week with the score still tied at an exciting 0-0. Likely it will be covered live by ESPN11.
Here’s more from the Hindustan Times:
A 12,000-strong crowd at the hockey stadium in Morhabadi forced the National Games organisers to reschedule Wednesday’s men’s semifinal match between Jharkhand and Maharashtra. Reason: Raghu Prasad, an internationally acclaimed hockey referee from Bangalore, awarded a penalty-stroke in favour of Mah
arashtra in the 20th minutes of the second half, thus irking the home team supporters. Prasad awarded the stroke after Jharkhand player Innocent Kullu ‘carried’ the ball inches away from the goalpost in the 55th minute. But the home team claimed that the ball had hit Kullu’s stick.
An enraged public started abusing the referee and threw bottles and slippers at the Maharashtra players, which forced the technical committee to stall the proceedings. Replays showed that Prasad had taken the right decision, but the crowd by then was in no mood to relent. At the time the incident occurred the teams were tied on 0-0.
Long suffering Bears fans were–to say the least–unhappy with quarterback Jay “I Got a Boobo” Cutler and his performance during one of the most important games in recent Chicago football history. So, what to do? Burn the guy’s jersey, that’s what! (At right, a picture of fans burning his jersey following the loss to the Packers. Photo credit: Twitpic @brianvanarsdale) We’re not saying we agree with such pyrotechnics, but we can certainly understand the fans frustration after watching the game. Even when he wasn’t “injured” Cutler did not look like a Super Bowl caliber quaterback.
We’re surprised no one burned Devon Hestor jerseys as well. What did he do to help the cause yesterday? Maybe the Bears can trade both of them for a decent quarterback . . or at least a bag of magic beans. Something. Anything!
Here’s the story from NESN:
It didn’t take long for Chicago Bears fans to react to their NFC Championship loss to the Green Bay Packers. Not surprisingly, they took it out on the team’s starting quarterback. After the game, several Bears fans got the outlash started by burning a Jay Cutler jersey.
Cutler left the game early in the third quarter due to an apparent knee injury and never returned. Although the injury’s severity is unknown, many Bears fans will likely question their quarterback’s guts and courage to continue to play in a game with such importance. Cutler finished the game 6-for-14 passing with 80 passing yards, one interception and a 31.8 passer rating.
