Banned for obesity

It sucks when people tell you that you smell. It’s even worse when they ban you from taking the bus because of it. New Zealand teenager Eruera Simmonds was banned from taking the bus because of complaints about the way he smelled. The obese teen, who weighed 147 kilograms (almost 300 pounds), was devastated because he was unable to go to school.

Tigers continue hot streak

What a difference a day makes. Just one day after narrowly escaping the Central Arizona College Vaqueros on an unearned run, the Tigers found their bats to win the second game of the series 9-7. Starting catcher Michael Neff, who had a key two run double in the bottom of the third, admitted that after the first game’s poor performance, the team wanted to score early and often.

This time around at the election polls, there was something a little different in the air.
