I can’t stop laughing at this…. LOL
We can’t even imagine what it’s like for this town right now: a South Carolina high school football player has died following a double collapse during a Friday-night game.
He had been helped off the field after a brutal tackle and then he collapsed on the sideline. His name wasRonald Rouse, and he played for the Hartsville Red Foxes.
After he was hit, he stayed on the ground before he was helped off the field and collapsed further… then EMS crews worked to revive Rouse and transported him to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
At the half, the rest of the game was suspended.
An autopsy will be conducted to figure out exactly why.
We hope, though this seems like a tragic accident, that more players will flex caution after this.
Our hearts go out to Ronald’s family, teammates, and town.
I know some of the comments were that people are out of work and this is excessive, blah, blah, blah, but I happen to think that its great that a team of grown men can get together and have a great meal. No wives, girlfriends or parents, but the team bonding. Oh and poor whoever not having the money to do it, yeah, yeah thats how much you spend on groceries for a month, so what? These guys play a game that puts their bodies in danger and take more intellect then the average joe would think and they get paid. Good for them!
It’s the LAST tab you’d ever wanna pick up — a bill for a lavish steak dinner consumed by the heavyweights on the Miami Dolphins offensive line — but Monday night, several unlucky rookies did just that … and it cost ‘em $7,400.
All told, there were 10 players at the dinner at Prime One Twelve steakhouse in Miami Beach — fresh off their Sunday night victory over the Bengals — meaning the average cost per head was $740.
Dolphins guard Richie Incognito tells us, they ordered practically everything on the menu — including Wagyu beef, which runs $35 AN OUNCE … in addition to a full array of appetizers, expensive wines, and of course … lemon drop shots.
Incognito tells us, the guys go out for dinner several times a year as a bonding experience — and it’s a tradition to make the rookies pay for one of those meals.
We’re told the rooks split the bill based on their salaries — which means starting right tackle Jonathan Martin paid the most.
Champagne problems … in this case, Dom Perignon.
Behind the “Boy With Toy Gun at Shooting Memorial” photo:
I had just finished speaking with friends of Micayla Medek, one of twelve people shot and killed at a theater in Aurora, Colorado. As her friends left the memorial site, a woman and young boy arrived. I immediately noticed that the boy was wielding a realistic toy handgun. I thought to myself “how incredibly inappropriate” and walked toward them. It was then that I realized the woman was sobbing.
The boy ran around the memorial site with his toy pistol, stopping on occasion to check on his mother. At some point she began talking to someone on her mobile phone. As she read one of the tributes left by a previous visitor, the boy lifted his pistol and wrapped his arm around his crying mother. The moment was surreal.
I let them be and made my pictures. After a few minutes they walked back to their car and left the site. No one confronted them during the few minutes they were there. Not really the place for confrontation I suppose.

Life is not fair – get used to it
The world won’t care about your self esteem.The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
You will not make $60,000 a year right out of high school.You won’t be a vice president with a car phone until you earn both.
If you think your teacher is tough, wait until you get a boss.
Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping - they called it opportunity.
If you mess up, it’s not your parents fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now.They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites your parent’s generation created, try delousing the closet in your own room.
Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT.In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer.This does not bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF.Do that on your own time.
Television is NOT real life.In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Be nice to nerds.Chances are you’ll end up working for one.
This is perfect.
