Comedian Faces 6 Months in Jail for Yellowstone Golf Stunt

And several other national parks could follow suit.

Published

Golf is, in and of itself, a sport that takes place within the beauty of nature.  The crisply mown fairways under a sparking sky, with the outside world groomed to perfection, the game exists not only as a testament to sport, but to mankind’s stewardship of the land we’ve been blessed with.

The same stewardship of the land has also influenced America’s National Park program, in which the federal government looks to preserve and maintain some of the most pristine and bucolic natural scenes that this great nation has to offer.

But, let’s make one thing very clear:  You shouldn’t go golfing in Yellowstone Park.

A comedian named Jake Adams recently finished an epic road trip in which he whacked a golf ball in every state over the course of 30 days. The problem? In Wyoming, he hit a few shots in none other than Yellowstone National Park, and park officials are none too pleased. In fact, he is under federal investigation and faces the possibility of six months in prison and $5,000 in fines, reports the Wall Street Journal. Adams chronicled his golf journey on Instagram, and his stop at Yellowstone caught the attention of local station KHQ 6, which reached out to the National Park Service. The service said Adams “showed a lack of judgment and common sense,” violated regulations designed to preserve the park, and was under investigation, per the Idaho Statesman.

The funnyman thought that he had taken enough precautions to be spared the trouble having not only brought a golf mat with him to prevent divots, but also using biodegradable golf balls as not to litter.
Adams had taken shots in 4 other national parks as well, but there has been no word as to whether or not he’ll face charges there as well.

WATCH: College Coach Gets Mayo Bath After Big Bowl Win

No thank you.

Published

on

While college football has long been steeped in tradition, there’s a very real possibility that we’ve hit the limit.

In Auburn, you have the toilet-papering of the local trees after a big win.  At Georgia Tech, the Ramblin’ Wreck motors out onto the field before every home game.  In Death Valley, (the one in South Carolina), Clemson players all pay tribute to a rock before taking to the gridiron.

And now, after you win the Duke Mayonnaise Bowl, the winning coach gets absolutely drenched in the popular sandwich spread.

The new college football tradition of dumping food on top of a winning coach after a bowl game now includes mayonnaise.

South Carolina coach Shane Beamer was the recipient of a mayo bath after the Gamecocks beat North Carolina 38-21 in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl.

And, because you have to witness this nightmare to believe it:

How did they get these otherwise serious college coaches to agree to the eggy, oily shower?

Both Beamer and North Carolina coach Mack Brown agreed ahead of time to get doused with mayo if their team won the game. Duke’s agreed to donate $10,000 to charity if the winning coach would agree to a mayo bath.

Coaches beware:  You’re going to need some goggles if Frank’s Red Hot ever sponsors a bowl game.

COVID-19 Shuts Down Major American Sports League

Is omicron coming for your favorite sport next?

Published

on

Over the course of the last several weeks, the omicron variant of COVID-19 has begun to spread swiftly throughout the world, thankfully with mostly mild effects and a low rate of severe illness associated with it.

But, while fewer people appear to be getting deathly ill from omicron, it’s still pinging all sorts of precautionary protocols for companies and organizations who require testing.  This includes one of America’s most beloved sports leagues, who announced late on Monday that they’d be temporarily suspending the season in order to get a better hold on the situation.

The NHL took to Twitter late Monday to announce a brief pause to its season, two games before a scheduled Christmas break due to the surge in COVID-19 cases.

The post said that team facilities will be closed through Christmas, and players will report back to their teams on Dec. 26, “which shall be used for testing, practice and/or travel only.”

ESPN reported that 11 teams have suspended operations this week due to coronavirus infections and more than 15% of its players were in virus protocols. The league said no player can enter facilities—unless they are being tested—until they have a negative test result.

The full statement can be read below:

There have been similar issues of player availability in both the NFL and NBA of late, with both leagues considering rule and schedule changes in an effort to accommodate the the fans and the teams themselves.
