NY Giants Guilty of Murder?

So, the perfect set up for killing a bunch of their fans would be an amazing play with seconds left to go. Manning hit a touchdown with 35 seconds left on the clock. Probably a hundred people are on their way to hospitals.

Should the team be held responsible? From “Super bowl could be hazardous to fans’ health,”

Swiss researchers found there were 60 percent more fatal heart attacks after the World Cup than there were during a year when the soccer tournament was not played. In the United States, fan heart attacks have even made the news. Last year, a Pittsburgh Steelers fan suffered a heart attack after watching his favorite player, Jerome Bettis, fumble in the fourth quarter of a playoff game. In the emergency room at the Shands at UF medical center, doctors also tend to see more patients after big UF basketball or football games, such as the recent BCS National Championship game, Seaberg said.

Adding alcohol and salty or fatty foods to the mix also could be a recipe for an emergency room visit, he said. People who know they have pre-existing conditions shouldn’t abandon their healthy habits on game day.

It’s important that fans with heart disease, diabetes and other conditions remember to take their medicine and stick to wholesome snacks instead of gorging on nachos, beer or greasy chicken wings, Seaberg said.


Students Should Start Protesting Now

Obviously students have the Zimbabwe government running scared. They have ordered the schools not to re-open in two weeks and only re-open in two months after elections. There has been demonstrations in the past over rigged elections.

So… Rather than go to every effort to make sure the elections appear legitimate, the approach is to take a preemptive strike against the students. The students should take to the streets now (or in two weeks when their schools do not re-open).
