    From the Boston Herald.

    Some Holliston girls-soccer whiz kids made their pee-vish feelings for archrival Medway shockingly clear when pictures of them allegedly urinating on their opponents’ field surfaced on the Internet to widespread disgust.

    “It’s disrespectful,” one Medway Mustang said yesterday. “I just think it’s unclassy,” sniffed another.

    The shocking hijinks, exposed to officials by Medway High School students, has resulted in discipline being meted out at Holliston High, where the Tri-Valley League rivals reside, and required the disinfection of the Medway field. Holliston Principal Mary Canty declined to elaborate.

    it's a cheesy way to write a story but many tabloid seems to love that. reminds me of what len pasquarelli wrote about vick back in july:

    stay away from the bad puns and even with the good puns, be cautious.
  12. Urine luck that BillyT was here to remind you ...
