Banana thrown at Wayne Simmonds



Quote:
LONDON, Ontario -- Philadelphia Flyers winger Wayne Simmonds, who is black, had a banana thrown at him from the stands on Thursday night during a 4-3 exhibition loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

As Simmonds took the first shot in the shootout, a banana came flying into his path as he skated in on Detroit goalie Jordan Pearce.

"I don't know if it had anything to do with the fact I'm black," Simmonds, a 23-year-old Toronto native, said. "I certainly hope not. When you're black, you kind of expect (racist) things. You learn to deal with it."

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman condemned the act. In a statement from New York on Friday, he said, "We have millions of great fans who show tremendous respect for our players and for the game. The obviously stupid and ignorant action by one individual is in no way representative of our fans or the people of London, Ontario."

Ha, i was listening to stern and he said the exact same thing. Really, of all the places in the world to go hiking, anywhere near those two countries would be the last place on earth i'd go.

Banning soccer balls at recess: Too far? - The Globe and Mail

Quote:
In one school in the United Kingdom, the soccer ball has lost its recess privileges.

Due to a number of accidents last year, a junior school in Gloucester has banned leather “footballs” from the playground. Sponge or soft balls will take their place, according to the BBC.
Quote:
Freerange Kids advocate Lenore Skenazy nominated the news as “outrage of the week” on her blog.

“Sort of like childhood itself: That time of daring and doing gradually being replaced with a squishy-safe facsimile of adventure,” she writes.
