example of great sportsmanship

Ohio player pricks foes in handshake line, forces tetanus shots

By Cameron Smith

In one of the most disturbing acts by an individual high school athlete in recent times, an Ohio football player placed a sharp object -- believed to be a tack -- in his glove before walking through a postgame handshake line, pricking the hands of 27 opponents as he walked through and "congratulated" them on a game well played.

According to the Wilmington (Ohio) News Journal and NBC affiliate WCMH, a Washington (Ohio) Court House High 16-year-old who was ineligible for the game sat on his team's sideline, then walked through the handshake line after his team's 26-0 victory against McLain (Ohio) High with a studded receiver's glove. The punctures made by the player's sharp glove eventually forced all 27 of the undisclosed perpetrator's alleged victims to receive tetanus shots from the Highland County health department at a meeting between the players and the Highland County Health Commissioner days after the event.

McLain players shared the most troubling details of the incident with WCMH.

"We walked across the 50-yard line and supposedly one of the guys had tacks in his glove. Nobody knew about it. I was far back enough in the line that everyone started to turn around and I got out of the way," said Michael Aeh, a McClain football player. ...

"They felt the pain of it when it occurred and they thought maybe they had hit a nerve or something. Then some of them immediately â?¦ looked at their hands and saw blood," said Dr. Dan Strain, McClain High School principal.

While the McLain players who suffered hand injuries because of the stunt were understandably most upset about the incident, local police also opened an investigation and contacted the mother of the suspect, who reportedly told Greenfield Police Chief Tim Hester that she planned to hire an attorney to defend her son.

"It was a small, sharp object," Hester told the News Journal. "We think it was probably a tack, but we haven't recovered it so we can't say for sure."


Regardless of what instrument was used to cause the damage, the entire incident is one of the most deranged in recent prep sports memory. That any player would inflict damages requiring vaccinations against unsuspecting victims is gross and disturbing. That the player didn't even play any part in the contest itself may make the hurtful handshakes even more upsetting.

That sentiment was certainly shared by one unnamed McLain student who was interviewed by WCMH. :(

Well, I'm not surprised! Nothing surprises me anymore!

Not only do jocks like to bully around non-athletes, but jocks even bully other jocks around.

Every jocks (thinks?) that, first of all, he is the most important person in the world, and second of all, his team is more important than any opposing team.

And he was on the winning team!!!

Yeah, I have heard of sore losers, but there are also sore winners, and a sore winner is not merely satisfied that his team had won, but he also likes to brag and gloat over his team's victory, and trash the losing team! Now, that's a sore winner!!

Imagine what this donkey-fucking redneck scum-bag piece of trash would have done to the members of the opposing team if his team and lost and the opposing team had won!

I think jocks should be kept under quarantine because they spread germs and diseases.

With the musty smell of sweat socks and sweaty jock straps coming from the locker rooms, a locker room is the perfect environment, like a culture dish, for breeding all kinds of germs, bacteria, and viruses.

One of these days, some mutant strain of microbe or virus might get out from a football locker room and wipe out all humanity!

Oh gee! Am I being too cynical?
ImageI'm fat and sassy! I love to sing & dance & stomp my feet & really rock your world!

All I want to hear from an ex-jock is "Will that be paper or plastic?" After that he can shut the fuck up!
Heah comes da judge! Heah comes da judge! Order in da court 'cuz heah comes da judge!

Well Fat Man first of all since I'm not that confident in doing the quote thing, I'll respond best I can.

Secondly, your post cracked me up, and at the same time I found it pathetic in the truth that it held;
Jocks bullying other jocks! Never thought of it that way, and also what you said about the 'sore winner', unreal. I don't understand the mindset of someone to do something like this unless he figured that he would be able to brag to the rest of his teammates later on how he 'got em' good'...go figure.

As far as you being to cynical, I don't think so, because just when you think you've heard it all, along comes something else to blow your mind.
