Wearing number 7 was self-humiliation. The teacher was just helping.
The teacher should be forced to wear Seattle Seahawks jerseys for the remainder of the school year, and be a target for all the school's spitwads and rubber bands.
The teacher was a moron, and this kid is a mewling lil' girlieman.
geeze...someone should sue that teacher for being unprofessional.
To annoy Vannoy
My dislike of the Steelers dates back to around the time Terry Bradshaw blatantly cheated in the Superbowl by forward fumbling 5 or more yards as he was forced out of bounds. That's why its illegal now. Was a moral and ethical lapse back then.
And, during the time of "Last year we knocked on the door. This year we beat on the door. Next year we're gonna kick the SOB in!"
A 17yr old scared of a high school teacher.....yeah right.
Can we all say WIMP.
Stupid joke on the teacher's part, but the student is a big, crying baby.
This is the kind of story that will whip Denver into action and beat the Steel...
And Jews think the Holocaust was bad.
what a freaking WUSS!!!
You know what else ticks me off about this ? Is that Sports, was made the topic in that class by that teacher, when they were suppose to be into academics...granted...it was Social Studies Class..but really..what kind of message is that for a "social studies" class...to ostracize a member of the class , and humilate him for having a different view. TSK!
Awwww!, was your wittle feeewings hurt?
How can this happen in America? In Beaver Falls? Just outside Pittsburgh/ sarcasm
I would have told the kid jokingly to "get off the floor" after he sat there for 5 minutes...if I'd even thought of the joke in the first place. We aren't getting enough of the story here. The other kids might have more to say on how obvious it was that it was a joke. Good teachers would generally make sure the victim of the joke is a good sport about it. So, for instance, he would ask the kid how the weather was down there to see if the kid saw the humor. This teacher seems to take the attitude of a basic training sargeant...which, by the way, is what this wussy kid needs to get in front of so he can get a spine.
In Germany, you cannot go into a bar in Dusseldorf and order a Koelsh from Cologne nor can you go into a bar in Cologne and order a Diebel. The tradition is that the whole bar goes silent and stares at you...and then somebody asks you what you really want to drink. You are supposed to then give the correct answer. The implication is that you will get thrown out on your ear if you insist on the competing city's main beer brand.
This is a very healthy attitude...precisely because it is mostly meant to be lighthearted fun and it is confined to boycotting only a neighbor city's beer (and not other products and services).
