S-bomb costs kid state title

    About a month ago, I was talking to a track coach and he mentioned a similar incident. With both agreed that dq-ing a kid on first offense for something like this is a little much, that a warning probably would have been in order for something like this. Obviously the official can't and shouldn't let it go, but for incidental, barely-audible profanity, tossing a kid on the first offense is going too far.

    Most high school activities associations are so fucking stupid it's amazing that they're were able to get to high school, much less take charge of high schools.

    Sometimes, I feel like I'm the only one in the world blessed with the beautiful thing they call....common sense.

    Connecticut is the same state that wanted to avoid football blowouts by suspending coaches rather than simply installing a running-clock mercy rule. So that really doesn't surprise me.

    Are you shitting me? This is ridiculous. If I was that girl, after getting dq'ed, I'd have cursed up a storm about how stupid this rule is. Get her money's worth.

    This is the most asinine thing I have ever seen.

    What a joke...

    I would fire the official immediately... Then I would call him a motherfucking donkey-raping shit eater...

    And the relay team gets DQ'd for underwear that didn't match?

    Why isn't it enough to just win? Remember when none of us on the relay team matched?

    What are we telling athletes by rendering their abilities pointless with these stupid rules?

    I think it is a good place to post this quote once again.....

    First of all, this rule is stupid.

    Second, I do wonder where and how the S- and F-bombs became commonplace words in our language. This is coming from someone who uses both words a bunch. But it seems like it's now common to hear those words at any point, and I'm still taken aback whenever someone decides to randomly toss each one out in public.

    Really? Hearing a Priest or Nun swear doesn't even shock me......they're just words.

    I'm with you on the first. The second is a good question, too.

    But in my mind...who gives a fucking shit if people curse?

    The best was the point in the story talking about how the girl probably wouldn't have been DQ'd if she had taken the lord's name in vain because that would be better grounds for a lawsuit. Which is true and points to the stupidity of this situation.

    Somebody explain to me what is wrong with the word "shit." Seriously. Why is it bad?

    At least when you get into saying something like Jesus Christ, I can understand people being offended. There is a reason the statement bothers people.

    This shit always pisses me off....
