The Ohio State women’s hockey team took on Bemidji State over the weekend and things got a little out of hand: The ladies decided to brawl.
The two teams combined for just 16 penalty minutes by the time the horn sounded to end the game, but after the clock ran out and Bemidji State had won the game 3-2, the benches cleared and an all-out brawl started.
The result was 18 fighting majors, and game disqualifications to nine members of each squad. Add another major and game DQ for grabbing the facemask and one minor for instigating, and you’ve got 287 penalty minutes for the postgame fight alone.
Along with the 16 penalty minutes from the game, it was an NCAA-record 303 total penalty minutes — more than have ever been give out in a college hockey game, men or women, Division I or Division III.
Because of the game disqualifications, each team was able to dress only six forwards and four defensemen for the next day’s rematch with the team, which went into overtime and ended in a shootout. Bemidji State won the shootout 1-0 after taking a 2-2 tie into the extra period.
A man in Canada said his pet bison is his best friend and comes into his house to watch TV with him.
He said the bison used to come into his old house to drink water but isn’t allowed to be in his new home.
He said the 1,821 pound animal behaves a lot like a dog. The animal takes care of his own coat and all he has to do is spray the bison down with an air hose before parades or other events.

Some 10,000 people are believed to have been killed in one Philippine city alone by a typhoon that washed away homes and buildings with powerful winds and giant waves.
Two days after one of the worst storms ever recorded, officials projected the death toll could climb even higher when emergency crews reach parts of the archipelago cut off by flooding and landslides. Looters raided grocery stores and gas stations in search of food, fuel and water as the government began relief efforts and international aid operations got underway.
Even in a nation regularly beset by earthquakes, volcanoes and tropical storms, Typhoon Haiyan appears to be the deadliest natural disaster on record.
It hit the eastern seaboard of the Philippines on Friday and barreled across its central islands, packing winds of 147 mph that gusted to 170 mph, and a storm surge of 20 feet.

Find out who is going to be performing live at Country Stampede in June here!
A retired guy in Pittsburgh is finally finding the time to be who he really feels that he is inside – a dog named Boomer.
He spends his days wearing his dog costume, eating dog food out of a bowl, chomping on milk bones, sleeping in his homemade dog house and barking at the mailman.
He isn’t always “Boomer”, he still enjoys pizza and isn’t always wearing his costume.
He says he got inspiration to be a dog in his childhood but has only recently been able to be Boomer in his daily life.
Some of his friends are supportive of his dog lifestyle, but his half-sister in California thinks he’s out of his dog gone mind.

A 13-year-old Kansas boy was suspended from school after refusing to take off his purse.
He’s been coming to school wearing the same Vera Bradley bag since August and the school suddenly decided enough was enough.
They asked him to take it off and put it in his locker but he refused, so they suspended him.
The school says that the same rule applies to guys as to girls when it comes to purses, bags, and satchels….they can bring them to school, but they can’t bring them to the classroom.
His mom is claiming the school is discriminating against him.
The school says he’ll stay suspended until he stops wearing the purse to class.
A college student in Ohio lost a testicle during a hazing ritual to join a fraternity.
The 19-year-old, and a couple of others were taken downstairs where the basement was flooded with three feet of water and were told to start swimming.
They were told to take off all their clothes except for the blindfold and had Icy Hot rubbed on them. Members of the fraternity whipped the pledges with rolled up shirts and towels. That is when the pledge was hit in the testicle. He fell to the ground but was lifted back up and the whipping continued.
The teen was taken to the hospital after complaining of pain and had to get his testicle removed.
The school is trying to suspend those involved but the pledge said it was a freak accident… and it wasn’t hazing.
