Jail Bait

APTOPIX China Daily Life

As I’ve been perusing the latest and greatest news, searching for some blog inspiration, I’ve found there’s something very strange going on in the sports world the past few days.

I came across quite an interesting story of a college prank gone wrong and it’s so unbelievably funny I just have to share.

All us avid sports fans know how intense and die hard a football game can get. Flashback to 2016 and a matchup between Ole Miss and LSU leaves one college gal without her pet goldfish.

Allegedly, the victim invited her now ex-boyfriend and his buddies to stay in her dorm room on LSU’s campus for the weekend of the game. After a 38-21 crushing loss, one of the Ole Miss guys wanted revenge and somehow thought eating an LSU goldfish was the way to get it. Yup, he ATE the poor girl’s pet goldfish.

After returning to the dorm and grabbing his belongings, Max Taffin stated “check your fish tank” as his parting goodbye. The victim did in fact check the tank and found her pet goldfish was missing. Later, she received a text messaged photo of Tiffin’s excrements with the caption “found your fish.”

Taffin was ultimately tracked down and arrested for animal cruelty and improper telephone communications on January 8th, over two years after the incident. Who would’ve thought his post-game sushi dinner would came back to haunt him after all this time?

Imagine when he goes to apply for a job or has to fill out any document that includes that blank space for explaining any crimes one has been charged with. Let’s hope he never aims to work for PetSmart; that’s one job he’s guaranteed to not get a call back.

Now, if that isn’t one of the weirdest incidents of the animal kingdom transcending into the football world, just wait. Oh and guess what… LSU is involved in this next one too.

A former LSU lineman was shot in the thigh… BY HIS DOG. The man, Matt Branch, was on a hunting trip with his friends and a hunting Labrador named Tito. Branch laid his shotgun in the bed of their hunting truck and walked around to the passenger side to continue loading up supplies. Tito hopped up into the bed of the truck and in his effort to find a comfortable resting spot, he stepped on the safety of the gun and somehow pulled the trigger, firing into Branch’s thigh.

The former ball player received medical treatment but unfortunately the bullet fragments hit his femoral artery and his leg eventually had to be amputated. While this story is nowhere near as entertaining as the goldfish glutton, it’s still a bizarre example of animals intersecting with sports.

So what did we learn? Next time you’re watching little Goldie swimming around his bowl and thinking about how delicious those orange scales look, please refrain. Explaining to your cell mates why you ATE a goldfish seems like it will be very difficult.
