I hope that cup of joe was worth it

According to the Salt Lake Tribune 6 [BYU] Freshman have been suspended from practice only after violating team rules. No details were made clear for the suspension, but since it is only practice it probably was for missing study hall or missing a weight session. However Freshman Ryan Kessman was one of the 6 and ask for and granted a release from his scholarship. His reasons were explained

[Kessman] was suspended for drinking a vanilla cappuccino, breaking curfew and missing a weight-lifting workout.

As a note Kessman is not Mormon but is of Jewish faith and he has left the school and is looking into UCLA as a potential school.

That’s right. The players got the boot for drinking some coffee.

I don’t know if I should be impressed for the school’s sticking to their beliefs or going “WTF?”

USC Goalie, Angry At Ref, Moons Crowd

…And gets a ticket for lewdness.

NORTH LOGAN, Utah – The moon over the Utah ice has nothing to do with the night sky.

University of Southern California hockey goalie Mickey Meyer mooned the crowd during a game with Brigham Young University.

He was ejected, then ticketed for lewdness by a police officer working security at the rink.

Police said Meyer rode his stick like a horse, dropped his bulky goalie pants and slapped his bare butt several times.

According to The Herald-Journal of Logan, Meyer told an Internet broadcast of the game that he had his fill of the refs.

The Trojans went on to lose to BYU, 6-4.

Prosecutors said they haven’t decided whether they’ll pursue charges against the mooning goalie.

Carolina Residents Confused, Terrified As Victorious Hurricane Players Riot In Streets

From The Onion

RALEIGH, NC–Only hours after the Carolina Hurricanes won the NHL Championship Monday night in a hard-fought Game 7 against the Edmonton Oilers, North Carolina Gov. Michael Easley mobilized the National Guard to contain over two dozen members of what he described as “some sort of depraved, violent, heretofore unheard-of gang calling themselves the Hurricanes.”

Read about the rest of it here. Please remember that it’s in Raleigh, I mean fictional.

No plans for repeat final between world’s worst

From here:

BERLIN (Reuters) – On the day the World Cup final was played in 2002, the Caribbean island of Montserrat played the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan in a specially arranged match between the two lowest ranked teams in the world.
Bhutan, ranked 202nd, beat Montserrat, then ranked 203rd and last in FIFA’s rankings 4-0 in front of 15,000 people at home high in the Himalayas. After the match the players got together and watched Brazil beat Germany 2-0 in the real World Cup final on TV.

FIFA’s membership has now grown to 205 countries but last-placed American Samoa — unenviably on the wrong end of a 31-0 world record defeat to Australia five years ago, will not play 204th-ranked Turks & Caicos Islands on the day of the World Cup final this year.

“It’s a shame,” FIFA spokesman Markus Siegler said at FIFA’s daily briefing, “because it was a great occasion and there was a great documentary made about it, but there are no plans to repeat the idea.”
