For months, the country has been inflamed over Officer Darren Wilson shooting and killing 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

High School Girl's Basketball Coach Resigns After Biting One Of His Players In The Face!

Filed under: ZportzBasketballViolenceSchool

high school basketball coach resigns after he bites player in the face

When you're the head coach of a high school girl's basketball, there are clear boundaries that you need to have with your players.

Well Leake Academy coach Doyle Wolverton apparently didn't realize that biting your players is a definite no-no, and it (not surprisingly) ended up costing him his job!

Yes, you read that correctly.

During a game, the coach called a timeout and brought in his girls for a huddle. But things quickly escalated when he pulled in one of his players by the jersey and BIT her on the face!!

The girl was taken to a local Mississippi hospital, where doctors called the police since the injury was caused by an assault!

Strangely, the player's parents chose to NOT press charges against him, however, the school wasn't as accepting of his face-biting antics and they asked him to resign!

Doyle was the head coach at Leake Academy for 38 years where he accumulated 1,200 wins, but it looks like he'll have to start looking for work elsewhere. Perhaps somewhere where biting your players is slightly less frowned upon!

Ch-ch-check out the full story …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Wow.

Steve Jobs is officially resigning as Apple's CEO. Let's hope he's okay.

We have a copy of his resignation letter:

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple”s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple”s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.

Steve

It's truly the end of an era.

Obama Believes That Anthony Weiner Will "Bounce Back"

Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

obama-thinks-anthony-weiner-will-bounce-back.jpg

Anything can happen in politics, right??

President Obama is certain that former congressman Anthony Weiner will "bounce back" from his sexting scandal.

Just a day after Weiner resigned, Obama said on GMA:

"I wish Rep. Weiner and his lovely wife well. Obviously, it's been a tough incident for him, but I'm confident that they'll refocus and he'll refocus, and they'll end up being able to bounce back."

Since the scandal broke, many Democrats have been trying to distance themselves from Weiner. Even Obama himself advised that Weiner should quit congress, saying that he "would resign" if he were in his shoes.

This certainly isn't the worst of political scandals we've seen in recent years and we're sure that with a few good PR moves, Obama could be right. We just might see Weiner pop up again in a few years!

LOLz!

Matt Lauer Leaving The Today Show Too???

Filed under: TV NewsKatie Couric

Lauer Might Leave Today Show

Right on the heels of us letting you know that Meredith Vieira could be leaving the Today Show, we're finding out that Matt Lauer might be also abandoning ship.

Could the Today Show lose both hosts??

Here's the insider Lauer tidbit:

"Matt Lauer has notified his NBC bosses that he will be resigning from the "Today" show when his contract expires on December 31, 2012."

When asked about both Vieira and Lauer, NBC just repeated that they're both currently under contract. Awesome, because that's what we wanted to know!

How's about a little transparency?!

2012 is quite the shake up year for anchors, especially since Couric is bouncin' from her job too!

How would U feel about Lauer leaving?
