Wow! Sometimes a police officer really goes above and beyond the call of duty, and this is no different.
The Sun Sentinal reports that officers in, you guessed it, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, continually slapped parking tickets on the windshield of an Isuzu Axium SUV before deciding to take a look inside. There, maybe six inches from where these officers were placing their tickets, was the car’s driver dead. But who could notice that when you’re writing such important tickets.
Amazing there officers were so committed to their work of handing out parking tickets that they didn’t even have time to look up and see someone dead in the car. Though it is unknown whether the body was there when the tickets first started, it was reported that the Isuzu’s windows were tinted, which might account for the late discovery. Though, that would excuse away how committed to writing tickets these officers were.
The Sun Sentinel reports that an email from the assistant clerk said the city dismissed the $160 in parking fees, "due to extenuating circumstances.”
Just so brave the way they wrote those tickets, didn’t look at the car, and then dismissed them.
Sometimes you think you’ve got life in palm of your hand. Sometimes you think you’ve got it all figured out. Sometimes you just want to run out the clock because whatever it is, it’s in the bag.
Other times, you’re just wrong.
That’s what happened to this poor basketball player who thought his team was winning, so he ran out the clock — he was just wrong.
In last night’s game against Brown University, Bryant University’s Ikenna Ndugba must’ve missed the tie-breaking point in the last 10 seconds because they were still down one point. Thinking that he just had to run out the clock, Ndugba decided to just dribble out the clock and, well, ouch.
They say you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take, and it’s rarely been more true than here.
You'll see this everywhere tomorrow. Wait for the end... #0 on Bryant thinks they won and dribbles out the clock 😂⚰️ pic.twitter.com/8XPaYWvHow— Mike Goldfarb (@MikeGoldFool) November 29, 2016
What can really be said about a flub like this?
It’s bad, real bad.
In the future, the flub will probably be put into gif form and used as shorthand to express grief over the failure of a sure thing.
As Deadspin put it “This is not hyperbole.” This might be the worst shot ever taken. This player from a “Serbian lower league” misses an open goal from, like, an inch away. It's hard to watch.
