If we could impart one piece of wisdom to the youth of America, it would almost certainly be this: Don't fook with Steelers fans. The Denver Post reports that a 17-year-old senior at a Pittsburgh-area high school was commanded by his teacher not to wear another team's jersey into class. The kid wore a John Elway No. 7 anyway, and, well, it didn't end well.

A die-hard Steelers fan and teacher at Beaver Falls High School made Joshua Vannoy, 17, take a midterm test on the floor. The honors ethnic relations teacher had Vannoy sit in a circle of desks, then instructed his classmates to throw paper at him.


The good news is that the kid wasn't wearing a Jake Plummer jersey, because if he'd have tried to throw the paper back at his tormentors, well, they probably would have come right back and hit him in the face.
