Rivalries

Today’s news includes two articles that involve sports rivalries:

Alabama-LSU football fans.

“A man and woman were shot dead after an argument that witnesses said started over an Alabama-LSU football game, but sheriff’s investigators said Monday they continued to investigate the motive.”

El Paso, Texas, high school dance squad.

“Dancers from Chapin High School allegedly laced brownies and cupcakes for the Andress High School team with Clorox, rat poison, two boxes of laxatives and other household products. The Chapin dancers planned to give the desserts to their rival team at a football game Friday night.

The students were stopped and the cupcakes were confiscated before anyone was hurt, but Andress High School parents said they plan to press charges against the Chapin students.”

Sports can make politics look almost tame.

  1. Why are the parent pressing charges, and not the police in this matter? Rat poison and Clorox aren’t harmless ingredients for pranksters, they can kill.

  3. Those were neither just desserts nor just deserts. Kind of gives killer desserts a new meaning.

  4. In the words of some now long gone LSU fan, speaking about LSU football: “It’s not life and death, it’s more important than that.”

    If they perform poorly, I have no plans to boo them.

  7. Just serve them for breakfast at juvi hall!

    Justice served, and it will take but a day!

    I doubt any would actually die, but for sure would learn why such thoughts/actions are beyond improper!

    Oh ans Scott is correct, “Well, it IS football…”!!!!

  9. West Texas football is taken super seriously. Far more seriously than politics are taken.

  10. This is so 90s…

    …Texas High School Football is, remember, the home of the original psycho-hitman-cheerleader-mom.
