Coach Makes Players Drink Soda Out Of Shoe

A California high school girl’s softball coach has apologized for requiring eight players who struck out during a recent game to drink soda pop out of a team member’s shoe, a school district official said.

The South Tahoe High School varsity players drank the soda at a team slumber party on May 1, hours after a game against Wooster High School of Reno, Nev.

What are the odds this guy doesn’t have a foot fetish?

Why would a male coach be at a female slumber party?

I learned at college that a surprising amount of beer can fit into a frisbee. I think almost 5 beers.

It wasn't a male.

The coach was female.

(Assuming this isn't answered in TFA) Why would a female coach be at a high school slumber party?

A male coach at a high school girl team slumber party would probably be a bit more eyebrow-raising than an eccentric choice of drinking utensils.

In case anyone was wondering the soda they drank out of said shoe would probably be sanitary. One of the most popular homebrewing sanitizers is a product called Star San, which is popular because it needs just 30 seconds of application to sanitize and needs no rinse. Star San is just phosphoric acid. According to the developer of the stuff Coke or Pepsi contains enough phosphoric acid to sanitize something in 30 seconds as well.

That is your fun fact of the day.

Huh, totally missed that part. In fairness, Anneliese can be a guy's name, too.

Can't decide whether that makes it more or less creepy.

The really objectionable part is that it was unrefrigerated Mountain Dew.

5 if you've got a flat surface and a good frisbee.

I also learned that the frisbee can be emptied in 90 seconds. That was the amazing part.

Really? You'd have to be pretty tough with name like that if you were a bloke. I remember from my youth that the Miami dolphins had a player named Kim...Kim Bokamper(sp?) or something like that...tough dude.

Sorry for the hijack...

Kim Bokamper, part of the "killer B's" defense (something like 6 of the starters had last names that started with the letter B. He had Super Bowl XVII in his hands, he had deflected a pass from Theisman and it fell into his hands and would have been a touchdown but Theisman hustled back to knock it away. Instead of an 11 point lead with just over a quarter to play the Dolphins wound up losing the game in the 4th.

I'm still pissed about that.

And really? 5 beers in a frisbee?

Ugh. I'll take the crab juice.

Who says soda pop? Isn't it either soda or pop?
