Bravo, submitter.

Big John Thompson wants to throttle the submitter with his sweater.

Had he made the shots, a couple North Carolina schools would be knocking on his door.

When I was a boy we were to tired from the five mile walk to school to shoot in the gym.
2005-12-22 03:08:19 PM  
It would be nice if we weren't at the stage where shots being fired, from a shotgun, are cause for an Amusing tag.

But apparently, that's where we are.

Wow, submitter, I'm hurt. I must say that our hoop squad is currently full of perfect gentlemen. Whereas we worship class acts like Ewing, Mutombo, and Mourning, most of us have disowned bums like Iverson.

Stay Classy, Georgetown.

the funny thing is that some idiot fired a shotgun in a gym trying to hit people. Rifle, man, rifle.

Duke Sucks?
2005-12-22 03:16:32 PM  
lol people suck at shooting
2005-12-22 03:16:57 PM  
i wonder if he even hit the broad side or if it was a brick.
2005-12-22 03:18:37 PM  
It is racist cause there are many dumb white people that do that.

Jules: This was Divine Intervention! You know what "divine intervention" is?

Vincent: Yeah, I think so. That means God came down from Heaven and stopped the bullets.

Jules: Yeah, man, that's what is means. That's exactly what it means! God came down from Heaven and stopped the bullets.

Vincent: I think we should be going now.

Jules: Don't do that! Don't you farking do that! Don't blow this shiat off! What just happened was a farking miracle!

Vincent: Chill the fark out, Jules, this shiat happens.

Jules: Wrong! Wrong, this shiat doesn't just happen.

Vincent: Do you wanna continue this theological discussion in the car, or at the jailhouse with the cops?

Jules: We should be farkin' dead now, my friend! We just witnessed a miracle, and I want you to farking acknowledge it!

Vincent: Okay man, it was a miracle, can we leave now?

I took it as a they were offered G'town scholarships because they couldn't shoot...i.e. their team sucks because they don't have any accurate shooters. I guess everything has to be racist though.

2005-12-22 03:27:28 PM  
As a Canadian who knows next to nothing about US college b-ball: WTF with the 'racist' claims?

I simply thought the headlines was probably funny, as it probably referred to a team that isn't doing well, hence the inaccurate shooter would fit right in.

Someone elighten me, please, on the racism issue.

Did anyone here RTFA?

Shots fired near Northwest High School gym; no one hurt

Shots were fired after a Wednesday night high school basketball game on the Westside, but the person who fired the shots was not found and no one was hurt.

The gunfire was heard near 34th Street and Moller Road at 9:32 p.m. as people were leaving the Northwest High gym after the Ben Davis-Northwest game. Police searched the area, briefly stopping traffic on Moller.
About 15 minutes after the gunfire was heard, police found four shell casings on the high school's parking lot. Officers were searching for the person who fired the shots.

Obscure, as you may have noticed, the press and many libs here like to link everything to racism. Hence, the fact that Georgetown would want the young man on their team is due more to racism - the young man is a criminal, therefore black, therefore ideal for Georgetown's team - (but somehow people who assume the submitter meant this aren't racist) than to the fact that Georgetown's guards have traditionally been very poor shooters and their baskteball team is in a bit of slump.
FYI - Georgetown is a 98% white school in 90% black neighborhood with a 98% black basketball team.

/pulled percentages out of my arse

Dearest Admins:

If you're going to fix the headline it would be nice to delete my post, which now makes no farking sense whatsoever.

2005-12-22 03:50:05 PM  
"In" the gym and "near" the gym are TOTALLY different things.
2005-12-22 03:53:01 PM  
Hoya Saxa!

We're more like 85% white, the neighborhood is about 99% white, and the team is usually 100% black, occasionally with a token white guy on the bench.

The REST of DC is 90% black, approximately. That, and every crime commmitted in the Georgetown neighborhood has a black or hispanic suspect. The submitter's not racist - our team can't shoot worth a damn, so going o-fer wouldn't keep the shooter from getting a scholarship.
2005-12-22 03:53:47 PM  
aw i feel left out...what was the original headline
2005-12-22 03:54:58 PM  
yeah... only one of them is funny.

I'll have to stop by when I'm in Indy this weekend.

Good times.

I remember the year after I graduated from Pike High on the NW side of Indy, a teacher got clubbed in the head with the claw end of a hammer and shot in the neck by some kids trying to steal a safe from the school. They had somehow wheeled it to the Industrial Arts department, which was next to the music department where the teacher was working after hours. He heard a noise and simply checked out what was going on.

The teacher managed to crawl to a pay phone and dial 911, and survived.

He did not return to teaching, at least at Pike. The dude was universally known as a great, kind and funny guy. He was always friendly to everyone. I imagine those kids ruined his life.

Go Red Devils!

The NW side of Indy has gone way downhill in the last 15 years. I see it slipping more and more every time I return. I hear Pike is a gang land now, with cops walking the hallways. It seemed like a semi idyllic place to go to school when I was there.

FINALLY! A college basketball headline that doesn't mention Duke. And I really hate Duke, but the headlines were getting old even to me.
2005-12-22 04:20:18 PM  
This would have never happened if they made guns illegal.
2005-12-22 04:24:09 PM  
I was expecting (and let down....) by the clear lack of "Duck Sucks" headline...

\\you people really let me down
\\\my precious was dam funny
\\\\slash for fun
2005-12-22 04:24:44 PM  
hahah by duck sucks I mean Duke.

\\hahah duck

/Went to Georgetown undergrad
//Thinks it's totally true.
///But that doesn't mean all basketball players are thugs. It's just that there WERE a handful of thugs who didn't belong at Georgetown but were nonetheless carried by professors.
2005-12-22 04:31:53 PM  
moosen: aw i feel left out...what was the original headline

Well, since the Boobiess include the word, "noone", I would assume the original headline looked something like this:

Shots fired in high school gym, noone hit. Shooter reportedly offered a Georgetown basketball scholarship.
2005-12-22 04:37:59 PM  

If you think Georgetown (the town, not the school) is 90% black, you've apparently never been there.
2005-12-22 04:41:51 PM  
"The REST of DC is 90% black, approximately."

More like 60%

Just because 90% are Democrats doesn't mean 90% are black! That's racist!
2005-12-22 04:49:22 PM  
Yes.... Duke does suck... and somebody is slipping...
2005-12-22 05:11:57 PM  
Well, if he joins the Hoyas he still won't be on the best team in DC.
