Bad dog. Sit.

[one-link sportsnewsfilter]. Bad dogs. Sit. Go Retrievers! But not to the locker room. In an attempt to motivate the fabled University of Maryland Baltimore County Retrievers, their coach has denied them the use of the locker room AND wearing anything wearing the school's name.

You couldn't have even linked to the Retrievers' website?

Is it just me, or have most of the FPP links been straight from the last minute of a local news broadcast?

You know, when I was in high school, all the freshmen on the tennis team got wedgies. Funnily enough, it didn't even make the local news! In fact, not even my parents cared. Nor did anyone else.

Times, they are a-changing.

Someone wrote a fable about a college basketball team? Must have been a slow day in Fableville.

Not being allowed to wear school-branded clothing is going too far though, that's cutting into school revenue. I expect the coach to be publicly humiliated and then have to max out his Mastercard to make up for it.

John of Michigan... who gives a shit? I can't believe this was in the news, let alone posted to Metafilter.

Bad poster! Play dead!

A Honda ad that makes you wait while it loads is what I encountered during the five seconds of my life I wasted.

Ziggy the parrot and Suzy the cheater are now appearing at Boing Boing (just in case anyone hasn't had enough).

I'm going to think this is way-cleverly funny (the "meanness" tag gives it away...I think) in a way my small brain can't even fathom. If I don't, I will weep.

However, we do have an excellent chess team.
