Maybe it's a good thing we didn't move to Fort Collins

First, there’s this:

FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State forward Xavier Kilby was arrested after he was accused of pointing a gun at teammate Ronnie Aguilar’s head, police said Monday.

And now, there’s this*:

FORT COLLINS, Colo. – A 4-year-old boy who was […] blitzed by a college football player during a game has 30 stitches in his head[…]

Best Place to Live in the U.S. my left butt cheek.  Your college athletes are a bunch of gun-toting, child-beating thugs!  Mr. Greenwood, you’ve got some splainin’ to do.

* Excerpt intentionally and misleadingly edited to make my faux outrage seem real.

Edit: Of course it was only a matter of time until someone YouTube’d it:

Damn.

Edit 2: YouTube video dead.  Double damn.

    Seriously Jon, there’s no need to be bitter about your application to move to Fort Collins a few years ago getting denied.  Now that you and Kelly have a kid you’ll get approved on a trial basis provided you have another kid within 3 years to meet the "2 kid minimum" requirement for the city.
    I have no idea what Mr. Kilby was thinking.  At least he had the good sense, relatively speaking, to shoot the couch instead of his fellow player.  Link here:  http://www.coloradoan.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070424/CSUZONE06/704240329/1006
    In regards to kids getting hurt, it happens.  One of mine tried to sled down our spiral staircase the other day in a clothes basket (he’s 4 too).  Just like the instruction manual, common sense is not included with your (or at least my) children.
    Keep up the good work.  I enjoy the posts.

    Yes, my application was summarily rejected by the California Department of Spousal Input.  "No Colorado for You!", it said in big, bold, red letters.
    That’s pretty funny about your kid.  (It actually sounds kind of fun, too.)  Hope he didn’t hurt himself too badly.
    Thanks Matt,
    Jon
