But Do They Use Pigskin?

Don’t you know making football players practice in the daylight during Ramadan is one of the worst things you can do to a Muslim male?

A Michigan high school football team is holding preseason practices in the middle of the night to help its Muslim players practice both faith and football.

The predominantly Muslim squad from Dearborn says the nocturnal regimen is a way for players to eat and drink while observing the holy month of daytime fasting known as Ramadan that started last week.

The August heat also played a factor in Fordson High coach Fouad Zaban’s proposal to reverse the clock for a week of two-a-day practices.

While I’m SHOCKED beyond all belief that some grab-ass Separation of Church and State group hasn’t filed a lawsuit over this, I might actually surprise you on this one. I say go ahead and let them practice at night. Think about it:

1) It’s safer for the players because it’s cooler at night than during the day, so the risk of getting heatstroke is less.

2) By practicing at night and sleeping during the day, these kids will most likely stay out of trouble.

Hell, I’m surprised more teams don’t do this sort of thing.

Favre Is Back — Was He Ever Away?

with 2 comments

The OL’ GUNSLINGER is returning. Was there any doubt?

Hey, he’s just going out there having fun … on an airplane headed toward Minneapolis. That’s all he really wants to do.

Good news is this means we might get another year’s worth of this.

But Was It Some Puerto Rican Guy?

Wonder if Katie Couric will start up a defense fund for this one, too?

A South Carolina mother who claimed her children drowned when her car careened into a river was charged with murder Tuesday after authorities said she confessing to suffocating the two toddlers and then faking the accident.

Sheriff Larry Williams said 29-year-old Shaquan Duley told investigators she was distraught about her money troubles and unemployment and that she killed her killed her children by putting her hand over their mouths after a dispute with her own mother. He says Duley then strapped the children into her car and drove it into a river Monday morning.

“This was a young lady that was in trouble, in trouble in more ways than she realized,” Williams said. “She was in trouble and she didn’t know where to turn.”

Williams said the responsibilities of being a mother were simply too much for the mother, who didn’t show signs of remorse during an overnight interview with authorities.

Oh, but she showed remorse. All is forgiven.

Where Does The Buck Stop?

leave a comment »

So let I get this straight.

Atlanta Public Schools superintendent Beverly Hall addressed hundreds of community stakeholders about the state of Atlanta Public Schools on Tuesday.

Channel 2 Action News reporter Mike Petchenik was in the meeting at 8 a.m. when Hall said the cheating scandal betrayed the trust of the community and it was her job to regain it.

“The buck stops here,” she said.

Late Monday night, angry residents expressed their frustration over the CRCT cheating investigation.

Angry parents confronted Hall over her decision to reassign a dozen school principals. The reassigned principals ran schools where a Blue Ribbon committee found evidence of possible cheating on the CRCT exam.

Hall said Monday that she had no choice but to remove the principals while the state continued their investigation.

In Tuesday morning’s address, Hall said it was time to move past the investigation and to focus on the children.

She also said that if one person cheated, they should be dealt with swiftly and strongly.

There’s a test cheating scandal.

The government schools Superintendent says the buck stops with her.

And in the top-of-hour radio blurb I heard, this person said she’s not resigning.

So the buck stops with this government schools official, but nothing is going to be done about this and we should all “move on.” Nice. I have to remember to use this the next time I get in trouble for something.
