A warning to those who haven’t heard about this story yet–you may never want to eat a snow cone at a ballpark (or anywhere) ever again. A snow cone vendor of the Houston Astros was recently fired after he was caught bringing the snow cones he was selling into a stall so he could go to the bathroom in the middle of a game.
Come on man–did you really think this was a good idea and you wouldn’t get caught? Thank goodness this individual was caught before he could begin selling the snow cones again.
If Chuck Norris tells the Jacksonville Jaguars to do something, they may want to strongly consider listening to his advice.
Norris is the latest to express his opinion on Tim Tebow‘s situation–saying the Jaguars should strongly consider signing the quarterback for the 2013 season. Jacksonville has made it clear numerous times they’re not interested in bringing Tebow on board, but now that Norris has gone out of his way to recommend it–maybe they will reconsider their decision.
