I'd hit it.

... was kinda hopeful it was between the players.

/Ten sweaty girls rolling around on the court... hmmmm

There was a high school basketball game brawl in Hartford last night. Unfortunately, the fight continued away from the school and a 15 year old is in the hospital in critical condition from a gunshot wound to the head.

When will these idiots learn that it's JUST A GAME!!!

AuntofDogface: When will these idiots learn that it's JUST A GAME!!!

Speaking on behalf of the 150,000+ people across the United States who have their jobs directly or indirectly as a result of the National Basketball Association, I would say that it isn't simply a game.

Sequim Police say they're trying to find this guy from Gig Harbor...

Wow. That's hard journalism, eh?

Bonus points for anyone who knows how to pronounce the name of the city (no fair if you have lived in Washington). Its pronounced Squim. From what I have heard it was a Post Office boo boo that misspelled the name and now one ever fixed it
2005-02-23 04:04:35 PM  
By the way, the town's name is pronounced "skwim"
2005-02-23 04:58:50 PM  
We have these guys here in Canada too... they fight at hockey games instead.
2005-02-23 05:02:26 PM  
You gotta practice for the pros.
2005-02-23 05:02:42 PM  
Mercutio, must you pain me with pulchritudinous tales of hockey?
2005-02-23 05:04:09 PM  
three total punches. who cares.
2005-02-23 05:04:42 PM  
Disney has already purchased the story-rights. "Sequim for a Heavyweight" begins filming in March.
2005-02-23 05:04:56 PM  
Yeah, we all wanna be like Bertuzzi up here in Canada.
2005-02-23 05:05:34 PM

2005-02-23 05:06:23 PM  
Page and video worked fine for me.

randy moss is now a raider
2005-02-23 05:08:21 PM  
Sequim - pronounced "skwim" - is the asshat of human existence. Never go there
2005-02-23 05:12:24 PM  
The ironic part of it is, girls basketball?!

I almost single handedly started a high school brawl at my Omaha high school last week. :\ Still serveing consequences for what i did. Yet, worth it.

2005-02-23 05:13:40 PM  
Okay, but "Sequimming to Cambodia" doesn't have the same oomph.
2005-02-23 05:14:01 PM  
Why are there kids in here? The minimum age for farking is 18.
2005-02-23 05:14:39 PM  

Don't you mean pugilistic?
2005-02-23 05:14:49 PM  
That wasn't a brawl, it was just a lame couple of punches thrown. I wanted chair throwing fight to the death.

/2 teams enter. 1 team leaves

For whatever reason, the vid download disconnects before connecting (for me).
2005-02-23 05:17:14 PM  
that was pretty weak. and the local news makes it their "Big Story"

local news is pretty weak (folks in the northeast, think News 12)
2005-02-23 05:19:13 PM  
What's the deal with the anchorman's hair?
2005-02-23 05:19:47 PM  
Sequim is the arsehole of Washington. Much like Spokane. Or Yakima. Or anything else east of the mountains.

Well...except the Gorge. That place is tight.
2005-02-23 05:20:11 PM  
I once ventured to pet my neighbor's barking dog. He almost bit me.

Oh sorry, I was so unenthused about this story that my daydream interfered because it was more interesting.
2005-02-23 05:20:52 PM  
I see Quim
2005-02-23 05:22:59 PM  
ha ha, Bremerton totally pwned both sequim and peninsula

2005-02-23 05:23:27 PM  
Gee, hope no one lost their cellphone.
2005-02-23 05:24:40 PM  
Video is farked.

In our big rivalry basketball game the only violence occured when a kid was pulled out of the second row by cops on a power trip. He didn't do anything either, the ref just thought he was talking back to him and decided to kick just him out. He eventually came back and got a standing O.
2005-02-23 05:26:58 PM  
Icey Quim? I knew a girl like that once.

/Ah, memories...
2005-02-23 05:28:34 PM  

Read here if you're having trouble. It's your quicktime settings.

2005-02-23 05:35:24 PM  
i got married in sequim. the town is painfully lame, but it's got someof the most beautiful, picturesque scenery surrounding it.

what's really cool is it has a really neat, distinct microclimate that is very dry but mild. it's exactly like provence, france. and it's only approximately 20-30 square miles. therefore, it's the lavender capital of the country.

what's funny is that everywhere around it gets a ton of rain (olympic mountains are just south...only temperate rain forest in the lower 48, one of only a few in the northern hemisphere). however, they only get about 18 days of rain a year. it's sort of a mini rain-shadow from the mountiainsl pretty cool.

but yeah, the town is really, really lame.

oh yeah, and did anyone hear about how eastern washington wants gwb to make them their own state, because they're sick of being associated with the hippies in western washington?

Ooooooh ! Did somebody say sequin ?
2005-02-23 05:36:45 PM  
oh yeah, and Aj611661, i don't know if you should talk. i mean, come on dude, you live in everett.

/i live in everett
//hey, at least we're not tacoma
2005-02-23 05:37:53 PM  

2005-02-23 05:39:14 PM  
Damn, I'm too late to tell everyone how to say the town's name....

Bellingham, R E P R E S E N T ! ! !
2005-02-23 05:39:26 PM  
Now, it mentioned Puyallup. Funny sounding name whether pronounced correctly or not. (Had a brother who spent a few months there.)
2005-02-23 05:40:19 PM  
I blame the parents for failing to teach their girls to fight during the game.
2005-02-23 05:40:50 PM  
What's the matter DixieNormus, does the fact that I'm only 17 and still in highschool anger you? Tear.
/can't win them all
2005-02-23 05:41:55 PM  
I love when professional writers start paragraphs with "By the way".
2005-02-23 05:43:35 PM  
Brawl? I didn't see no stinking brawl! I saw one punch, then a parent say both of the teams players starting crying like a bunch of girls. That is no stinking brawl.
2005-02-23 05:46:46 PM  
Only Puyallupians are allowed to make fun of Puyallup.

2005-02-23 05:47:47 PM  
I had a dude try to tell me how Moses Lake was "off the hook last night."

Me: "Moses Lake?"
Him: "Yeah!"
Me: "Moses Lake, off the hook?"
Him: "You've been to Moses Lake?"
Me" "Yeah. It's like Sequim, only crappier."
Him: silence

/ Bangkok is off the hook. Moses lake is a desert pond.
2005-02-23 05:48:00 PM  

I would say that it isn't simply a game.

Well, then you'd be wrong.
2005-02-23 05:52:05 PM  
onethreeseven - having been through Moses Lake (and its MT/WY/ID equivalents) that is hilarious. If Moses Lake was "off the hook" it must have been in the sense that a fish is off the hook, desperately gasping for air (or beer, as the case may be).

Now I'm in Montana, so cue the Unabomber jokes...
