He's a druid
Well I was dreading this moment, I must come clean and aknowledge that english is not my mother language, I knew I was going to screw up at some point but thanks for the input, It really helps me get better, sorry for the confusion
And dread it you should have. Now there will be consequences...
have just described the plot of the Basketball Diaries.
In 8th grade football practice we were doing some special teams drill, kickoff or punt return (don't remember). Anyhow, I had already picked up my block so my guy was out of the play. Looking for someone else to hit I noticed someone who was running free and they did not see me at all. For whatever reason the idea of blindsiding this kid, my teammate, just gave me what can best be described as a shot of adrenaline. Well it was a clean hit as far as rules go (at the time, maybe some defenseless player rule now) but I ended up breaking this kids femur. Not sure how the injury happened, as it was a shoulder/head level hit.
Right away he was screaming and I immediately felt terrible. Some guys tried to give me high fives and helmet slaps or whatever but I was just in a daze. I really had to reflect as to what made me take advantage of that situation. I know you can never half ass it on the football field during live play but I feel I went above full go on that particular play, again I don't know why. Regardless, it still bothers me 20 years later.
In college at cmu, I was on an im flag football team. And we were down 35-0 so I decided to lay out this kid who was talking trash. I don't regret the penalty or the decision
Commudus tried to tell Maximus to kill Tigris of Gaul in the Colliseum. Rather than listen to Commudus Maximus defied him. Commudus's authority was then undermined by Maximus's defiance.
Dumb moves at sporting events have been going on as long as sport has existed. With that said, nothing trumps Euro soccer fans. I'm so happy I am not one of them.
wait, I actually didn't regret the break-up, but losing the game really pissed me off.
Leaving the Braylon game early. Not leaving the 2001 Citrus Bowl beatdown vs. Tennessee early enough.
I was part of the usual large crowd trudging north on State Street, and an impatient driver turned into the crowd of us that was crossing Packard despite the fact that the light had changed. He was using his car as a slow battering ram, driving it into the crowd an inch at a time and laying on the horn. Many of us were yelling at him, but I went and whacked his car on the trunk as I was passing behind him. Turns out he was a cop, driving home. Whoops.
Anyone else on state street after The Game in 1997? If so, anyone else remember that kid who climbed the tree in front of duderstadt's house and then fell down about 20 feet to the ground? That hushed up a crowd of over 1000 students in a real hurry.
Also, Texas fan says that what happened to LSU kid was nothing, and probably would have preferred it to being nearly castrated by a sooner fan.
I remember that. What sucks is that because of the night before, there is not really much I remember from the Rose Bowl that year; just a blurry collage of images. In fact, if it wasn't for a good friend of mine (RIP)periodically waking me up and giving me food and water, I probably would not have made it through the night. New Year's Eve + own digs at the age of 17= 3 day hangover.
Anyway, back on topic, I remember seeing footage of that dude falling out of the tree on the news that evening, and it also made one of those World's Dumbest/Shocking something or other shows they used to show on Fox back in the day.
What the guy did was stupid, but I really hate this era where literally anything can be caught on video and ruin your life.
I wonder, though, if the era of "literally everything can be caught on video" and the era of "I'm going to put my balls on this passed out dude's face" overlap almost completely.
I once stole a Spartan flag from someone's house after Braylonfest. I wouldn't do it again but strangely don't regret it.
I once injured a cousin at a family reunion touch football game. It was a girl.
Cousin It was a girl?
We were up by a fair margin on Indiana in Crisler. Their giant post player is shooting free throws(Killingsworth?) and you could hear a pin drop. Before I knew it, the words "You got your coach fired" come barreling out of my mouth. Not tea bag dumb, but pretty stupid none the less. Indiana put somebody else in to shoot the free throws(I'd never seen that before). A minute later Killingsworth comes back in and just goes HAM. Michigan loses, goes on to lose to Minny in the BTT and misses the tourney by the skin of their teeth. A year later Tommy was fired for the tourney drought.
You heard it here first- It's my fault Amaker got canned...if only from my douchebag karma...

This is the I Did Something Stupid thread. I think you want the I Don't Need Thanks Just Doing My Duty thread.
In high school some friends and I were thrown out of the school's basketball game for being drunk and acting like idiots. I, with one of the friends, decided to go back in. This time, we weren't just thrown out, the sherrif's deputy said we were going to be arrested. I did make one good decision that night, though. Standing outside next to the cruiser,my friend said to me, "it looks like a good night for a stroll." I knew exactly what he meant, but I looked at him, 6 foot tall, drunk, out of shape and overweight, and then looked at the probably 5' 6" buff deputy, and just knew that deputy would have looked forward to running down, tackling, and cuffing my friend (in my druken state, of course, I just knew I wouldn't be caught). I shook my head "no" to the friend, and a few minutes later we were let go with a warning.
Was that nursery for plants or student's babies?
