I don't understand why it's so hard simply to participate in an athletic event and leave it at that.

Why do people feel the need to dance?  Or, point at the sky?  Or, helicopter with their penis?

Okay, the last one I can sort of understand...but, the others?  WTF?

Somehow in the list of things wrong with the world, a high-school athlete pointing to the sky in front of the judges just doesn't seem all that bad.

Depending on which finger he pointed with...

Since the article provides only the barest minimum of details and invites all kinds of wild speculation, here's my entry for the "What Really Happened" guessing game:

The kid was a cocky douche who made a big showy "I'm number one!" gesture directed at the judges. When they got honked off about it, his dad tried to cover by claiming it was really a humble thank you to God, and therefore protected religious speech. When that didn't fly either, douchey kid got extra douchey and the judges unloaded a big heaping scoop of DQ on the self-fingering little snowflake.

/ahh, sweet uninformed opinion. Are there no questions you cannot answer?

Apos: Why disqualify the entire team for one member's conduct? This is the part that makes very little sense.


Why decimate an entire legion because one soldier was too hungover to fight? So you can be sure it won't happen again.

If the rules say "no dancing around," you can't dance around.  Being very fond of Jesus does not exempt you from the rules.  This isn't prison; you don't get special privileges just for being religious.
