The first week of school is always low key. Everyone’s kind of getting back into the groove. Kids haven’t shown their true colors yet. Everyone’s still wearing their new clothes. Life is good.
But by the end of the second week, it’s the most depressing time of the year because it’s hot, you have homework, and you have 174 days to go. That’s when the fights usually start. And this year’s opening Worcester Public School Fight Club video comes from Doherty High School, where our sources tell us a young man thought it would be wise to grab a Latino girl’s rumpus. BIG mistake:
Welcome to Turtleboy Sports Doherty High School!! We’ve been waiting for you to make your debut, as you’ve joined your sister schools of Burncoat, Worcester Tech, South, and of course North.
Let me tell ya, we missed out in high school by not having iPhones. So many GREAT fights exist only in the tall tales that have been retold over frosty beverages at the Banner. I remember back in ought five or ought six there was this MASSIVE brawl at Burncoat High School and the whole school basically had to be quarantined. If that happened today we’d be able to watch the whole thing from a million different angles.
From what we’re told the boy ended up getting 10 days suspension and the girl got three. Turtleboy finds this punishment to be fair. You can’t go around school grabbing ass in a civilized society. It’s wrong for a million and one reasons. And girls have every right to to be FURIOUS about if it happens to them. At the same time, maybe just a punch or two gets the point across? That was at least six or seven solid blows to the head. It’s kind of like tackling a guy when he’s already out of bounds. But the bottom line is, I bet that kid thinks twice before he goes around playing grab ass in the hallways!!!
