On December 1st, the sports world was in shock as reports came in that Jovan Belcher, a linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs, died in a murder-suicide, killing himself at the Chiefs training facility after murdering the mother of his three-month-old child in their home. Most people tried to figure out what would make a good kid like Belcher, who appeared to “have it all,” end his life in this way. But I found myself asking, “But what about the girlfriend? Does she even have a name?”

Her name was Kasandra Perkins. The 22-year-old mother had given birth in September and now she was dead. Gone. Keep reading »

“Female, male, dog, cat, as long as they’re calling the right calls and they know what they’re doing out there, it really doesn’t matter. It’s a person. She’ll see the same things as a man. She knows how to blow the whistle the same way. It’s going to be something weird to see, but you deal with it and just roll.”

– This was Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley speaking in regards to Shannon Eastin, who last night, became the first-ever woman to referee an NFL game. Yup, history was made. I haven’t seen a plague of locusts descending yet, so I think everyone is going to be okay! [Fox Sports]

hurt feelings report

Pat Lynch, the head football coach of Buffalo High School in Wyoming, resigned recently after handing out homophobic and sexist “hurt feelings reports” to players asking them if they were a “pussy,” “a queer,” “a little bitch,” have “woman like hormones” (sic) and a litany of other puerile options. The report reads:

“We, as a company, take hurt feelings very seriously. If you don’t have a mommy that can give you a hug and make it all better, please let your supervisor know and we can provide you with a surrogate. If you need them, diapers, midol (sic) and a ‘blanky’ can also be supplied.”

At the very bottom of the report are three places for signatures which read “Name little sissy filing report,” “Girly-man signature,” and “real-man (sic) signature (person being accused).”
