High school students beaten by rival fans for Tebowing after basketball win

It happened in Charleston, S.C., where two Wando High School students were beaten up in the parking lot by rival fans for Tebowing after their team had won a basketball game. Imagine Nelson Muntz saying: “THAT’S for not realizing Tim Tebow is no longer a trending topic!” The Post and Courier:

A rivalry between local basketball fans heated up this week when Wando High students said they were punched and kicked after “Tebowing” during a game against West Ashley High.

Two teenage fans were beaten — one to the point of vomiting — as they walked outside after the game, which ended in a 20-point rout by Wando. Neither required hospitalization. A 17-year-old Wando fan told police that as he and a friend left the gym and began walking through a breezeway, some West Ashley fans jumped them.

“They were scared for their lives,” said Lara Isaac, the 17-year-old’s mother. “No one was manning the exits to make sure this wouldn’t happen. The kids who did this apparently knew that.”

Fun fact: The Wando High School marching band is a marching band dynasty, having won the past seven straight SCBDA state 5-A championships.

    Beaten to the point of vomitting is probably a severe concussion.

    These kids are idiots.

    “Of course the violence also could have been sparked by the recent announcement that Jon Huntsman has dropped out of the presidential race. I know high school kids are taking that hard.” –

    What would posses you to think that that comment was remotely appropriate after “reporting” a case of a physical beating……of high school students. You might want to take a look in the mirror at this point.

    Way to make light of a very dangerous and sad situation Mr. Chandler. Children being beaten at a sporting event is never a joking matter Sir. You should think before you speak (or write).

      Rick is a liberal, sir. You must realize they enjoy when something happens to someone who must have been conservative in their views.
