You know how the CFL team in Saskatchewan is called the Roughriders? Well, evidently the team’s GM wanted to really put his stamp on the name. Unfortunately, he tried to do so by sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl, or so the Regina police claim.
According to the SASKATOON STAR PHOENIX, via the REGINA LEADER-POST, Saskatchewan Roughriders GM Eric Tillman was charged in connection with an incident dating to Aug. 6, right about the time that the 2008 CFL season was hitting midseason form.
There are few details about the alleged assault, but we know that Tillman was arrested, charged and then released to appear back in court. The GM clearly hasn’t fled the country, because he re-signed lineman Jeremy O’Day today, and heck, when you’re in a place like Saskatchewan, it’s probably hard to avoid being noticed trying to get away. (We have a feeling he’d be pretty anonymous in Venezuela, though.)
Hockey: We’re used to it being the home of dirty, perverted acts allegedly perpetuated on kids by slimy junior hockey coaches. But now apparently the fans are getting into the act. MY FOX TWIN CITIES reports that police in Mankato, MN are looking for Tavo Ray Bowman, who gave an 11-year-old boy a $20 bill and asked him to pull his pants down before a Minnesota State-Mankato hockey game last Friday night.
The kid was smart: he took the $20 but ran back inside the restaurant he was at to tell his dad what had happened. Needless to say, Dad wasn’t too happy and went outside to confront Bowman, who took off running into the dark Mankato night. (Or afternoon - do they have the sun in Mankato in December?)
All teachers know that time and task management are the most difficult subjects to convey to high schoolers. Keeping track of every deadline and deliverable can stagger the best students and crush a disorganized one.
We can only imagine that was the object lesson an Alabama middle school teacher meant to teach when she worked her way down the area high school’s baseball team roster, allegedly having sex with eight of the students before being caught when one of the underage ballplayers told his parents. Always make a list, kids!
Trussville, AL, police stated that Julie Pritchett, a middle school teacher in town, signed up to sponsor the Diamond Dolls, high school girls who handled much of the side business for each game (tickets, concessions, ball girls, scorekeepers, etc.). Through that position, Mrs. Pritchett allegedly seduced much of the team on and off campus.
