Boner of the Day

Boner (Round One) for October 3rd, 2017

Boner Candidate #1: COME ON PAT. IT’S TIME TO TAKE A LONG NAP.

Pat Robertson, the famed televangelist from the long-running 700 Club show, claimed on Monday in the aftermath of the Las Vegas attack that the deadliest mass shooting in American history was caused by people disrespecting the president and the flag.

Ayelen Almada, a former Woods Cross High student, was at the game with her 16 year-old sister and a friend. She asked them to stop.
