    According to the El Dorado County Sheriff's Department, a 17-year-old Ponderosa junior performed a "cup check" on his 14-year-old freshman teammate following a snowboard team competition at Sierra-at-Tahoe on Feb. 12.
    A common sports gag, a cup check involves striking a teammate's groin, ostensibly to determine if he is wearing a protective cup.

    In this case, the freshman was not and, according to the sheriff's report, fell to his knees in pain.
    Sometime later, the boy complained to his mother of pain, House said. On Feb. 19, after she noticed her son wincing when he sneezed, she took him to a doctor, who sent him to the emergency room.

    There, according to investigators, he was told he had internal bleeding and an infection, and that he could lose one or both of his testicles.

    This was a big thing in my junior high school for about three weeks. I got one. It was not good.
