The U.S. Navy cracked down Monday on late-night drinking in Japan following a spate of alleged crimes involving U.S. servicemembers that occurred despite a month-old curfew.
In addition to the 11 p.m.-5 a.m. curfew for all American servicemembers in the country, active-duty sailors are prohibited from drinking alcohol from 10 p.m.- 8 a.m., even in their homes, regardless of leave or liberty status, according to U.S. Naval Forces Japan spokesman Cmdr. Kenneth Marshall.
This my friends is what is called mass punishment. It’s also called a morale killer.

This ad has been out for awhile but I just saw it during a Pats/Dolphins game… wasn’t this song once THE most important statement evah?!? I’m sure Edwin Starr no longer owns the rights — which then makes it ironic.
Anyone who has followed college basketball the past few decades probably knows a good Rick Majerus story or two.
There was the time he promised to quit at Utah if false allegations that freshman Britton Johnson had used a racial slur during the 1998 NCAA tournament turned out to be true. Or the day in 2005 when while working as an ESPN analyst, he favorably compared footage of actress Ashley Judd at a Kentucky game to watching adult videos in his hotel room. Or the introductory press conference at Saint Louis in 2007 when the school president began his speech by explaining Majerus’ last name meant “great” in Latin only to have the coach correct him, telling reporters, “I think it means sausage-eater.”
Examples like those of Majerus’ rollicking sense of humor and larger-than-life personality are one of many reasons he’ll be missed in college basketball circles. The former Utah and Saint Louis coach died Saturday at age 64, barely three months after he took a leave of absence from his job as head coach of the Billikens citing heart issues and other health concerns.
Majerus’ girlfriend confirmed the news of his death to USA Today on Saturday.
He was not as well known recently as during his heyday at Utah, but in an often bland and over serious sports world, Majerus wasn’t afraid to speak his piece or tell a great story. He also happened to be a pretty good coach despite actually avoiding cliches.

I know the question of the new century has been who the hell cares is Floyd R. Turbo? Here I am shaming my little ones who were too scared for the 60′ plunge into the tank of reef sharks. Little wussies darlings.
