First up in today's News Rounds: How to Teach Your Kids to be Good Sports.
PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (AP)—A parent body-slammed a high school referee after he ordered the man's wife out of the gym for allegedly yelling obscenities during a basketball game.
The referee, Ronald Bell, 57, was treated at a hospital for a concussion and released after the attack Friday night.
Peter J. Dukovich, 47, was charged with simple assault, assault on a sports official and disorderly conduct. His wife, RaeLynn, who claimed the ref was making bad calls, was cited for disorderly conduct.
I particularly like this quote from a bit further down in the story:
Officials say the rivalry between suburban Deer Lakes and Hampton high schools prompted administrators to allow only parents and grandparents to attend the game.
We'll allow only parents and grandparents to prevent fighting! Yeah, that's the ticket!
