Kennesaw State Cheerleader Falls and is Taken Away in Stretcher

If you've been reading about the sport of cheerleading recently, you've probably read that it is dangerous.

Dangerous to the point of being the most dangerous sport for girls when it comes to catastrophic injuries.  Many schools have taken the difficult and dangerous stunts out of the routines.

On Thursday night at the North Florida vs. Kennesaw State men's basketball game, a Kennesaw State cheerleader hit the floor while attempting a stunt.  She was taken away in a stretcher, and word came out today it appears to be only a concussion.  I don't say ONLY lightly.

Here's my photo recap of the incident, including in the first two pics, the Kennesaw State mascot "Scrappy" was the first to attend to the fallen cheerleader.

A scary incident, hopefull she will be ok.


Kite Surfer Hits Building in Florida

One person was injured in a kite surfing accident on Lake Mangonia in West Palm Beach, Florida this afternoon, hitting a building on North Australian Avenue.

The kite surfer, who was not identified, struck the side of the building at 2935 N. Australian Ave., which houses a branch of Oakwood Center of the Palm Beaches, a mental-health facility.

The one-story building, on the west side of Australian Avenue, is on the shore of Lake Mangonia. Winds this afternoon were clocked at 15 mph, with gusts as high as 31 mph, the National Weather Service said.

The surfer was taken to St. Mary's Medical Center after complaining of a pain in the side. There was no damage to the building, a West Palm Beach police spokeswoman said.  Whew... that's a relief.


Big Ben Out for Steelers

Injured Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will definitely not start and probably will not play at all on Saturday when the Steelers host the St. Louis Rams, the National Football League team said on Friday.

His injured ankle will keep hime out this week and backup Charlie Batch will get the start.
Roethlisberger was listed as questionable for the game.

Despite the injury that has limited his mobility, the two-time Super Bowl winner started Monday's game at San Francisco and passed for 330 yards but was intercepted three times in the 20-3 loss to the 49ers.

Coach Mike Tomlin decided to go with Batch against St. Louis, though, with the Steelers (10-4) already having clinched a playoff berth. They remain in the race for the AFC North Division title.

Batch, 39, has compiled a 4-2 record with the Steelers over the past six years. His last start came in October 2010.
