    Yeah that is pretty gross. Then the above video definitely seems fitting. I've heard of older people enrolling before, but mostly for questionable or creepy reasons, and not athletics. In this case, it seems like it was all of the above. Yeah, post any other stories you find. Now it makes me wonder how many adults are enrolled right now and getting away with it.

    High School can be strange for all of us, but it could be even stranger to look to your right or left and see a 25 year old man posing as a fellow student. Now, we've heard about how police will enroll NARCs to investigate possible drug rings, but older folks have made it into High School either with the "assistance" of staff or not to play sports. Perhaps they wanted to relive the glory days of their youth, or they were brought in as a ringer. Either way, it's weird and kinda funny.

    Recently a story hit the web about a 25 year old man who enrolled in the Dallas school system to play basketball. I suppose he looks rather young. I think it's kinda funny when this happens. I wonder if it's a tad insulting to the individual when they find themselves still struggling with subjects they did when they were a teen. This guy pretended to be a high school freshman though? Come on. I'm over 30 years old and most high school seniors look like they're 14 to me now. I guess he used the "over active pituitary gland" argument. haha In another instance a 21 year old enrolled in a Michigan high school to play football. I could see that being more feasible and believable. Can anyone recall any other ridiculous stories of adults infiltrating high school sports?

    Reminds me of this scene Wink :

    Is it just me or did Combatant only have 5 seconds to get settled in the chute before the starter pistol went off? What a quick start.

    Yeah, I agree. Reminds me of a quote from an article that said: "The Vegas Golden Knights are the new Stanley Cup favorites - Imagine reading this a year ago?" Very Happy

    I thought I'd browse the interwebs and see what teams everyone is making a fuss about. I thought I'd add some picks/odds for teams, as well as highlight players that are favored for MVP. Let's see if we all agree here. Also, you can see each player's stats and breakdown when you click their name.

    Teams:

    • Nashville Predators+350
    • Tampa Bay Lightning+500
    • Boston Bruins+600
    • Vegas Golden Knights+750
    • Winnipeg Jets+750
    • Toronto Maple Leafs+950
    • Washington Capitals+1000
    • Pittsburgh Penguins+1200
    • Anaheim Ducks+1650
    • San Jose Sharks+2050
    • Philadelphia Flyers+2050
    • Columbus Blue Jackets+2200
    • Minnesota Wild+2250
    • Los Angeles Kings+2250
    • New Jersey Devils+2550
    • Colorado Avalanche+3050

    MVP Contenders:

    The bracket seems so different from last season. The Penguins are lagging behind, and the Predators are on top. I'm hoping the Predators get the chance to redeem themselves from last season's loss to the Penguins. Or is that just a safe bet? :) Well I like to see a formerly defeated team come back with a vengeance, as stereotypical as it may be. Let's get the debate going. Post your top picks!

    It's hard to tell. He's currently at T27 right now. I came across a USA Today article with the title "

    What's the cut rule at the Masters? Some big-name players in danger of missing it". The article of course is referring to Tiger. I think as non pro athletes fans take for granted how much talent it takes just to be at the bottom of the Masters leader board. It's obvious he's still playing that head game with himself. Then again you're right, he is facing stiffer competition now. Not to mention, he isn't as young as he used to be.

    Wow, your moment certainly tops mine, and I wasn't even there to see it live. What you described reminds me slightly of something you'd see in Talladega Nights. I couldn't imagine seeing a stock car creep at 25 miles an hour across the finish line. :)

    Honestly, I don't know why they bumped her up so quickly. They certainly didn't do her a favor by doing it!

    Me either. Like everything these days, it's all about politics. I bet every time she sees here commercial air, she gets sick. I feel bad for her. She said she was gonna give Indy one last run as well. I wonder what she'll do after it's all said and done.

    Yeah, I wonder why another sponsor wasn't trying to scoop her up afterward. At least she's going out with a bang, two 500s worth, I might add.

    I can't say that I didn't see something like this coming, given the drama she has received since day one of her career in NASCAR. I wonder, do you think it's because NASCAR is still an old-boys network? Or is it my imagination? She's a good driver, but I guess she didn't put the points up on the board as they expected or wanted her to. According to the article I read, she will do one last stint in Indy Racing after hanging up the helmet with NASCAR. Like the title says, I wonder what this means for future generations of female drivers. Thoughts?
