    Why Portland (Oregon) is going to Hell (Ewwww)

    Or at least a very creepy resident of our favorite planning nirvanna:

    PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - The Oregon teachers' board reprimanded a
    high school football coach for licking the bleeding wounds of student
    athletes, school officials said on Friday.
    The Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission placed Scott
    Reed, 34, on two years of probation and ordered the coach, who is also
    a science teacher to attend a class on the risks of blood-borne
    pathogens.
    Last summer, Reed gave students at Central Linn High School near
    Eugene, Oregon, 100 miles south of Portland, a pep talk about a coach
    who had licked and healed players' wounds so that they could rejoin the
    game. After the talk, he bent down and licked a cut on a track
    athlete's knee, the commission said.
    The head of the commission, Vickie Chamberlain, said the board felt a
    public reprimand was necessary "because we were very concerned about
    his behavior."
    Reed did not return calls seeking comment.
    Complaints filed against Reed also cited other risky behavior, such as
    licking blood from wounds on a football player's arm and a high school
    student's hand. Parents said if Reed had had an open wound in his
    mouth, the licking could have spread an infection such as HIV or
    Hepatitis B and C.

    Yes I did read this. Pretty disgusting and pretty crazy. That guy has serious problems.

    But it doesn't mean Porland is going to hell. Eugene or Bend or whatever is the one going to hell.

    Years ago the basketball team went on a camping trip where they encountered a feral child whom they adopted and groomed to the be the paragon of coaching talent he is today.

    At least there's still plenty of wild places left in Oregon.

    What the... well I guess that vampires need to get a 'fix' some how. It is better than him sucking the blood out of his players necks.
    The most foolish thing one can do this fall is to vote for Clinton or Trump. Wake up, get out of the matrix, and send a message to the political establishment that you won't play their game.

    This guy is just misunderstood. You see, there is a substance in saliva that encourages blood to clot so he was really trying to keep his players from bleeding to death.

    Portland is not going to Hell, but it is about to overrun by hoardes of the undead. Maybe said coach is a Type 1.
