Rock On: A real reason to riot at UVU (5 items)
Utah Valley University fans wasted no time making themselves heard in the WAC.
At the end of Thursday’s UVU-New Mexico State game, the Aggies’ K.C. Ross-Miller threw the ball at UVU’s Holton Hunsaker, just as fans rushed the court. That’s when things got wild, as fans and players milled around and even threw a few punches.
There was plenty of national publicity because, for a half-minute, things were trending toward a riot.
OK, maybe that’s an overstatement. A riot in Utah County?
Not unless they close the BYU Creamery on Friday nights.
1 of 5. KING AND I
Asked how many backup protectors he has, James told the Miami Herald, “About 25, if you include my kids’ masks the last nine years from Halloween.”
How many kids can get away with trick-or-treating dressed just like their dad?
2 of 5. CUDDLE TIME
It’s called “professional cuddling,” whereby pajama-clad workers provide comfort and acceptance to the stressed out. (No intimate contact is allowed).
So where were these people when Jerry Sloan and Deron Williams were breaking up?
3 of 5. HAPPY TRAILS
A witness said he saw a man leave the car and smash wood pieces against the fence in frustration.
Whoever it was, it sounds like another satisfied graduate of the Bobby Petrino/Tiger Woods School of Defensive Driving.
4 of 5. ON THE MENU
This invites a plethora of wrestling-related menu possibilities: the double-leg flapjack, the scoop slam and the lobster claw hold.
Just one Rock On suggestion: never order the gorilla hold gut-buster.
5 of 5. JIMMERFEST
First game stats: 1-2 from the field, three minutes of playing time.
Sources say the Chicago newspapers have no idea if he’ll help the team, long term. They’re just happy to have a name the headline writers love as much as Noah.
