POP HAZMAT HEADLINE DU JOUR: Amputees Brawl at Charity Soccer Match. Organizers Stumped.
CULTURAL TOXICITY QUOTIENT: I’m going to go out on a limb, here, and assign a CTQ of 9 to this disgraceful behavior. It was supposed to be for charity, after all.
RUDIMENTARY ANALYSIS: Two teams of amputee soccer players from the Netherlands and Belgium engaged in more than friendly competition at a charity fundraiser match in Antwerp the other day. Rumor has it that a member of the Belgian team cried foul and a player from the Netherlands felt that his opponent simply didn’t have a leg to stand on. A brawl ensued.

EXISTENTIAL RAMIFICATIONS: Can referees accomplish anything? When this sort of unseemly display begins to rear its ugly head in the name of charity, all escalating tensions ought to be immediately cut-off.
TAKE-AWAY QUOTE: “The player on the ground grabs the single leg of No. 8 in black and takes him down … there are no reports of any injuries.” #IRONY

Book One = The magical cornerstone – a lavishly illustrated epic narrative poem … a genuine “spell” for the young and young-at-heart to treasure for a lifetime, telling the story of sorcerer Rowan Blaize’s battle to regain his magic powers. (Think Beowulf-meets-Dr.Seuss or an epic story-in-verse of a scope similar to Tolkien’s soon-to-be-released The Fall of Arthur, only contemporary.)
Book Two = The rip-roaring novel that continues the adventures of Rowan Blaize and introduces the three hilarious witches of the Ancient City, along with its dysfunctional werewolves, wraiths, ghosts, vampires, dryads, banshees and a beauty pageant brat that just might destroy the world.
Book Three = The next novel that finds Rowan trapped by a spell in another world, caught between a faery-squashing sorceress who’ll stop at nothing to conquer the kingdom … and a feisty teenage prince who’s determined to get it back.
