Save the Cheerleader, save the world

Can i just say, before i begin, that the title of this post has no bearing whatsoever on the content thereof. I am, however, a serious Heroes nut and believe this to be like the coolest catchphrase ever, like.

So, anyway as you have probably deduced from my last post and this one too, i have nothing to blog about! I gat naathin' *in bad italian accent*. I'm on the brink of :




So it's just as well i leave for my holiday in Morocco next week!

I know i'll come back revived....

...and probably go into blogging overdrive



But here's a little story to tide you all over till then.

NB
Depending on your sex, you'll either laugh your head off



... or cross your legs and go "OUCH" or even "YEEPA"



Enjoy...

Football fight ends in near castration
TEXAS-OKLAHOMA | Fan wore wrong T-shirt in bar

September 12, 2007
BY SEAN MURPHY
OKLAHOMA CITY -- To some Oklahoma football fans, there are things that just aren't done in the heart of Sooner Nation, and one of them is to walk into a bar wearing a Texas Longhorns T-shirt.
That's exactly what touched off a bloody skirmish that left a Texas-shirt-wearing fan nearly castrated and an Oklahoma fan facing aggravated assault charges.

The shocking case has set off a raging debate in this football-crazed region about the extreme passions behind a bitter rivalry.

''I've actually heard callers on talk radio say that this guy deserved what he got for wearing a Texas T-shirt into a bar in the middle of Sooner country,'' said Irven Box, an attorney.

According to police, 32-year-old Texas fan Brian Christopher Thomas walked into Henry Hudson's Pub on June 17 wearing a Longhorns T-shirt and quickly became the focus of football ''trash talk'' from another regular, 53-year-old Oklahoma fan Allen Michael Beckett.

Thomas told police that when he went to the bar to pay his tab, Beckett grabbed him in the crotch, pulled him to the ground and wouldn't let go, even as bar patrons tried to break it up.

When the two men were separated, Thomas looked down and realized the extent of his injuries.

''He could see both of his testicles hanging on the outside of his body,'' said Thomas' attorney, Carl Hughes. ''He was wearing a pair of white shorts, which made it that much worse.''

It took more than 60 stitches to close the wound.

Beckett's attorney, Billy Bock, said it was just good-natured ribbing and that his client apologized to Thomas. Later, Bock said Thomas approached his client and threatened him.

''My guy was defending himself and just took control of the situation," the lawyer said.

On both Texas and Oklahoma fan Web sites, boosters trade tales of having their tires slashed or windshields smashed for sporting the opposing team's sticker in enemy territory.

Assistant District Attorney Scott Rowland said the rivalry will have no bearing on the way the case is prosecuted.

Oh shuks.
You've got me..
Heroes..
oh man..
we just might have a future.

I'm so much a heroes fan , that i and my friends actually threw a party for it.

We called our punch " Save the cheerleader".
Tee hee.
the party was such a hit everyone kept on asking us to make another batch of our cheerleader punch.

Two weeks ago we tried a new recipe which we called "Sylar".
It was just as lovely as our "Save the cheerleader:".
still i prefered the first.
My freinds are hinting at a reicipe they call Mohinder..
My friends smoke pot..
i'm on to them!!

I'm about to have a heroes tatoo done. Next month. The sign that pops up everywhere..that one?
Yeah,....

heroes!!


Morrocoo...

AN IBO DUDE'S CORNER said...

The fan is lucky, atleast in America u can file charges. Earlier in the year, during a "Bolton" VS "Arsenal" match here in lagos, a fan stabbed the other in the head with some metal. he almost died. i cant remember who stabbed who but thats just it. it was news for a couple of days and thats that.

Enjoy Morocco oo, give us gist when u return so i'll know if i'ld go too. safe trip

Atutupoyoyo said...

LOL. Sikira was that last picture really necessary? Oush.

So you are off next week abi? How time flies. What are you taking with you in terms of books and/or movies? Sightseeing gets knackering after a while and sometimes you just want to spend some time recuperating indoors or by the pool.

It is not too late to buy me ticket o!

UndaCovaSista said...

@ Ibo dude – na wa for football hooliganism. It’s you guys now. Too much testosterone an’ all. Lol

Thanks, I will have fun. In fact, I’ve got to now, I owe it to all you kind bloggers who’ve been wishing me a good holiday!

@ atutupoyoyo - Hehehe. That last picture was gratuitous, I know…

I leave in a couple of days, actually and yep, I’ve got my reading material sorted. For a brief while, I considered adding my copy of The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, but rapidly reconsidered. I’m too young to die!
Never thought of movies though. Thanks, maybe I’ll take some DVDs with me.

And is it only ticket? What about trinket? Lol

Aijay said...
