Five People That Had A Worse Weekend Than You

Five People That Had A Worse Weekend Than You

I have to admit, I had the world’s most boring weekend. I spent my few precious hours off from work studying, cooking, baking, cleaning and watching “Dateline: Real Life Mysteries” on TLC. Thrilling, right? Maybe not, but at least it was better than some people’s.

Some University of Houston Football Fans

I’m going to be honest with you: I didn’t even know the University of Houston was actually a place until I read this story. I mean, you can’t blame me – there are like a zillion colleges in Texas, it seems. Anyway, not only is the University of Houston an actual place, they also have a pretty decent football team. In fact, their 19th ranked Cougars beat No. 22 ranked Temple on Saturday.

Good for them, right? Yes, for the football team, but not so good for the fans that tried to rush the field after the game.

Following the win, which marked U of H winning the American Athletic Conference title, thousands of Cougar fans rushed the field at TDECU stadium. But, as you can see in the video, a number of them were pushed, punched and body-slammed by the rent-a-cop security guards from Contemporary Services Corporation, which is contracted by U of H for sporting events.

U of H’s athletic director, Hunter Yurachek, is pretty pissed, stating, “We are working with the University of Houston police to review today’s activities and will take swift and appropriate action including the termination of our current contract with CSC and any legal action deemed necessary.” [via ESPN]

Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman has played a lot of different characters, including God (in “Bruce Almighty”). Which is whom he was likely praying to this weekend when his private plane needed to make an emergency landing.

Freeman was flying from Mississippi to Texas, when his plane was forced to make a “controlled forced landing” in Tunica, about 40 miles from Clarksdale, where he had departed from. The emergency was caused by a blown tire that occurred during take-off. No one was hurt in the accident, but the same can’t be said for Freeman’s plane. The five-time Oscar nominee told the Associated Press in a statement, “Sometimes things don’t go as planned and a tire blew on takeoff, which caused other problems. But thanks to my excellent pilot Jimmy Hobson we landed safely without a scratch,” adding, “I cannot say the same about my plane. I appreciate the concern and prayers for our safety.”

Phew. At least there’s still hope for Shawshank Redemption 2. I’ve been dying to see where Andy and Red wound up, aren’t you? [via USA Today]

Kids in Portland, OR

When I was a kid, I used to get really excited to go see Santa at the mall. I’d get all dressed up to go see the man in the big red suit. But children in Portland, OR are being robbed of that experience, because their Santa is a hipster.

Yeah, that’s right. This Santa is rocking skinny jeans, a cardigan, thick rimmed glasses and, of course, a man bun. And, according to KXAN, “Claus is leaving his sleigh at the North Pole for a more environmentally friendly option. Look at the skies this Christmas and you just might see Santa toting toys on a bicycle, while his reindeer hang out with Mrs. Claus at home.”

I can’t. I just can’t. [via KXAN]

Ayesha Curry

One of the worst things to have on Twitter is an opinion. Which is something that Ayesha Curry, the wife of Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry, learned this weekend.
Curry tweeted this on Saturday:

So she thinks, along with my Nana, that girls these days could stand to wear a little more clothing. No biggie, right? But this is Twitter, and god forbid you express an opinion. The twitterverse freaked the fuck out, with “Ayesha Curry” trending for much of the day on Sunday, and responses opposing Curry’s original tweet ranging from semi-sane to outright cray-cray:

But my favorite tweet in this whole she-bang was the one that shut down the haters:

When you put it that way, perhaps Mrs. Curry’s weekend was just fine after all… as long as she left her phone off. [via Mashable]

Patriots Fans

Just leave me alone to wallow in my depression.
