Ever wanted to see the Patriots Rob Gronkowski naked?
Too bad. If you want to see the lovely ladies of the US Olympic Volleyball Team wearing nothing, you also have to see some naked male jocks as well. Makes it sort of “balanced”, we suppose.
If you haven’t already seen the photos, you can check them out at ESPN here. Are they Safe For Work? Probably not, even though everyone’s junk is covered up or hidden in some fashion.
We’re going to have to defer to BadJocks readers who bowl: how, exactly, does having naked pictures of teenaged girls on your cell phone help you bowl better? We’re not trying to say we understand all the nuances of knocking down the 10 pins, but would they really take the place of say, practicing? Or a new ball? We’re confused that anyone would come up with this con game, much less fall for it.
We’ll let WNEP tell the story:
Police near Bloomsburg (PA) charged Michael Nearhoof over the weekend with having inappropriate contact with the student last year. Nearhoof was a volunteer bowling coach at Columbia-Montour Vo-Tech for six years. Police said last summer he sent sexually graphic text and picture messages to a 16-year-old girl, and told her it would help him with his bowling game.
Megan Wertman lives in what she calls a quiet neighborhood near Bloomsburg. She was shocked to find out the married man who lives across the street from her, Michael Nearhoof, is accused of having inappropriate contact with a 16-year-old girl who he coached in bowling.
“It’s pretty disgusting. I wouldn’t think that. This is a nice neighborhood. I would never think that,” said Wertman. Nearhoof, 47, was a volunteer bowling coach at Columbia-Montour Vo-Tech for six years. Police said a 16-year-old female student told them Nearhoof sent her sexually graphic text and picture messages from July until August last year. Police said Nearhoof encouraged the student to send him graphic pictures, saying it would help him with his bowling game.
You knew this was going to happen at some point, didn’t you? With young people using cell phones to record every moment of their lives these days, eventually someone was going to bring one into the locker room shower and capture stills or video of someone naked. And, as bad as that would be, you know the next move is going to be to send it to all their friends.
It finally happened last week at Henderson County High School in Kentucky. And, unfortunately, one of those involved in the incident was over 18, making him the criminal when it comes to distributing naked pictures of a minor.
From the WAVE 3:
On Sunday, one of the team’s players, Gavont Baker was arrested, accused of being involved in a scandal that rocked the team. Police say that incident took place in the school’s locker room after practice.
They say some of the players began horsing around after taking a shower. But, police say that horseplay turned criminal when one of the students recorded video on a cell phone that showed a player naked.
Police say that video of the under-age player was sent by cell phone to several students. Students tell 14 News, Baker was kicked off the team and some of the other players involved were punished.
Police say there are five suspects in this case. But, Baker is the only one who is 18. Authorities are not saying if the others will face charges. Baker is expected to appear in court in March.
Don’t republish this photo.
Not unless you want to get arrested and spend five years in jail for “offending public morality.” Oh, and you work for a news organization in a country ruled by strict Islamic law.
The photo, of Real Madrid soccer star Sami Khedira and his mostly naked hot blond model girlfriend (how many times do you get to use that phrase in a sentence?), Lena Gercke, on the cover of GQ magazine is tame by western standards, but in the country of Tunisia, where Khedira’s father is from, it’s grounds for an ass-kicking. As a result, three journalists from Tunisian newspaper Attounissia have been arrested for republishing the images. International news organizations are demanding their release, an end to censorship and more naked pictures of Gercke. But mostly the pictures.

This usually happens to high school jocks, not high school coaches.
This time though, an adult who should have known better is the one caught by social media mania. Paul Withee, football coach at Oxford Hills (Maine) resigned this week after the picture appeared on his personal Facebook page. Withee claims the naked photo was intended for his girlfriend, but it ended up on his public page instead. Oops!
The photo was up for only about ten minutes, and there’s no evidence that any of the players or students at Oxford saw it, but the parent of a player did, and that was enough to launch an internal investigation at the school. Which led to Withee’s resignation.
The real lesson here? Screw Facebook. No one would have batted an eye if this had been on his MySpace page. Everyone’s naked on MySpace.

“Impairing the morals of a minor?” Based on what we’ve been reading lately, a lot of minors already have impaired morals.
That’s not to say that what cheerleading coach Manuel Batson (CT) did was right, but it does make you think that we need to come up with new laws to cover today’s sex-filled environment? Basically, Batson is accused of sending naked pictures of himself in exchange for getting naked pictures from one of his cheerleading students. A crime? Yes. Impairing the morals of a minor? We’ll let the court decide that.
