Penn State students latest rioting idiots

Fans in Montreal and Vancouver are rioting today. No, not because of a first round series win or because of their overrated, mediocre goalie buckled under the pressure again.

Fans in both cities are rejoicing because despite the fact theyve both been involved in some of the stupidest riots in history, there is a new undisputed champion in town.

The Guinness Book of World Records announced today that the Penn State fans and rioters have officially set the record for dumbest riot of all time.

Why did Penn State fans riot? Were they protesting an unjust ruling or the unfair treatment of a popular figure? No, they were protesting the firing of a man who attempted to cover up the horrible sexual abuse of children.

As were sure youre all aware by now, former Penn State head coach Joe Paterno was fired after it was revealed that Paterno was aware of some horrible, awful abuse against children taking place at Penn State. Rather than going to authorities, he basically ignored the issue and downplayed it to Penn State management.

When Penn State fans found out Paterno was fired, they decided football was way more important than all the ruined lives caused by administration's ignorance and started a riot.

I hate to say Im excited in a situation like this but now Montreal looks so much less stupid, said Canadiens mascot Youppi. Sure, our fans are dumb enough to burn cop cars after a first round win but at least were not celebrating atrocities against children!

Vancouver Canucks mascot, Fin, shared similar sentiments.

Weve been taking crap since June for our riots. Our fans smashed cop cars, ruined stores and threw things at Milan Lucics elderly grandparents. Those jerks at Days of YOrr wont shut up about it, though they are hilarious and hurtful at the same time, Fin said. But now...no one is even going to mention us ever again when the subject of riots come up. We rioted after a Game 7 Stanley Cup loss. Those expletive deleted morons at Penn State should all be pummeled by Shawn Thornton."

There are scum bags and then there's you, Penn State rioters. Football isnt even close to important in this situation. You started a riot to protest the firing of a man who allowed atrocities against children to continue because he couldnt be bothered to go to the police.

Because of him and others at the university, a countless number of children will be forever damaged. And you respond by rioting? You are the absolute dumbest group of people. You have to go to bed at night knowing that you rioted to support the abuse of children, because that is basically what it comes down to.

You can rationalize it anyway you want, but if you participated in or celebrated this riot even for a second you were basically raising your hand and saying that sexual abuse against children is okay as long as you run a semi-successful football organization.

There is absolutely no excuse at all for what happened at Penn State. If you participated in, approved of, or cheered the riot you deserve to get punched in whatever set of genitals you have. Repeatedly. If you have a daughter or son or nephew or niece or grandchild or any small child you are close with and they are unlucky enough to get abused, know that you cant really be mad because you CELEBRATED this by participating in this riot. You are giant pieces of crap and you deserve all the worst things in life to happen you. Go rot in a hole somewhere you morons.

Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.

Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.

Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.

Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.

Brian Johnson: 'Awesome feeling' after five-hitter vs. Mariners

Brian Johnson: 'Awesome feeling' after five-hitter vs. Mariners

BOSTON - Brian Johnson had quite a turnaround in his second time on Fenway Park's mound.

Johnson pitched a five-hitter in his first big league appearance at Fenway, and the Boston Red Sox stretched their winning streak to a season-high six games with a 6-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday.

The 26-year-old left-hander became the first Red Sox pitcher to throw a shutout in his first Fenway start since Pedro Martinez on April 11, 1998. In Johnson's first start in Fenway - his fourth as a professional - he sustained a season-ending facial fracture when he hit by a line drive while pitching for Class A Lowell in 2012.

"The last time I walked off the mound here was 2012 and I made two pitches," Johnson said. "Today I went nine innings. Today was pretty cool."

Johnson left Triple-A for a little over a month last season to get treatment for an anxiety issue.

"Obviously with some stuff that I've been gone through in my career, it's an awesome feeling" he said.

But despite the stellar outing, Johnson was optioned back to Triple-A after the game.

"That's the reality of the game," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "We had a chance to congratulate him and yet option him back to Pawtucket, with David Price coming here Monday."

Brought up from the minors for the start, Johnson (2-0) gave up five singles, struck out eight and walked none. His only previous big league starts were at Houston on July 21, 2015, and at Toronto on April 18 this year.

Johnson was helped by a semi-leaping catch by center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. at the wall in the sixth, Bradley's diving grab of Nelson Cruz's sinking liner in the ninth and Bradley's game-ending running catch of Kyle Seager's drive.

Xander Bogaerts' RBI single triggered a three-run first inning and Bradley hit a two-run homer in the sixth

Shut out for the second straight day, Seattle has lost seven of eight.

"Their guy threw the ball over the plate. He threw strikes," Mariners manager Scott Servais said. "I won't take anything away from what he did, but we're not swinging the bat very well."

Rob Whalen (0-1) gave up five runs and seven hits over 5 1/3 innings in his Mariners' debut, his first big league start since Aug. 23 for Atlanta. He is Seattle's 12th starting pitcher, the most in the major leagues.

Andrew Benintendi and Sandy Leon also had RBI singles in the first, when the Red Sox had two batters hit by pitches, two walks and two runners thrown out on the bases - Dustin Pedroia at third for the first out and Hanley Ramirez at the plate for the last.
