In most countries, if a man ran out in the middle of a major sporting event in a skirt and lifted it up to reveal he wasn’t wearing any underwear, he’d not only get arrested, he’d likely get taken for a psychiatric evaluation.
But not in Australia.
Down under, you see, they have a slightly different sense of humor, so a Scotsman in a kilt at a rugby match is probably a welcome distraction. In this case it was Murray Greig, 22, who followed the Scotland team on a world tour that landed them in Australia for the first time in 30 years (you fellas gotta get out more.) The Scots won 9-6, which prompted young Mr. Greig to run out onto the field in his kilt, do a handstand (NO!) and then proudly lift it up as he raised a triumphant finger into the air. The result? Greig became a media start in Australia, where the local press dubbed him “Braveheart” and the ESPN channel used his antics to promote the tour broadcast.
How did things turn our for this streaker? According to Greig, “I was running around the pitch and security guards were chasing me. I managed to dodge them for about another 30 seconds before they caught up with me. The police asked me for ID but I didn’t have any, so they let me go.”

Apparently being drunk and shouting profanities are still okay at football (soccer) matches, but singing God Save the Queen or making the sign of the cross now violates Scotland’s new anti-bigotry laws at sporting events. Local police still aren’t sure how this will be enforced, but already worry that the approximately $2 million set aside for enforcement won’t be nearly enough.

Not sure how to feel about this one… The part of me that regularly acknowledges responsibility and control says “No.”; but my “party-on” side says ” Oh, Hell yeah… Beeoooootttcchhhhhh!!!!!”. All I know for sure is that if you find yourself in dire need of an “Eight Ball” in Scotland… Just get a hold of these blokes and ask for the (codename) “Triple Bogey”.

As a side note: Although I had some fun with this story, I would like to make absolutely, positively sure that everyone out there understands that I; in no way, shape, or form, condone processing multiple kilos of coke in the midst of dancing toddlers.
And, call me preachy if you must, that should just be how it is for any decent human being on this Earth.
A HISTORIC golf club and a children’s dance school were among premises raided as part of a massive police operation which netted £500,000 worth of cocaine. Two men were arrested and charged with drug dealing offences following the swoops at the Royal Musselburgh Golf Club and LA Dance School, both in Prestonpans.
Kenneth Glen, the professional’s assistant at the golf club, and Gary Yorke – who is believed to be connected with the dance school – have already appeared in private at Edinburgh Sheriff Court to face the charges.
More than 100 officers were deployed on a string of raids in Edinburgh, East Lothian, Midlothian, West Lothian, and Lanarkshire, with 11.7 kilos of cocaine recovered from a number of locations. But a golf club spokesman said that no drugs had been found during the raid, which was carried out last Friday. The premises targeted were believed to have been used in the alleged cutting and bulking of controlled drugs.
