Wisconsin School Forces Girls To Send Advanced Pics Of Homecoming Dresses

Seriously?

A Wisconsin high school is requiring that “dress wearing students” (see, 99.9% of women) to submit a photo of their dress before they will be allowed to purchase tickets for the homecoming dance according to ABCNews.

Pewaukee High School has a strict dress code prohibiting spaghetti straps, show midriff, show cleavage or have a skirt that is shorter than fingertip length. But many students AND parents find it a bit creepy to have to submit photos of their daughters to the school.

If a photo is not sent, the parents have been asked to email the principal to assure that they will only buy dresses that comply with the school’s regulations.

While some are supportive of such a rule, the outrage smoldering, especially online. 17-year-old Senior Nicole Stark had this to say:

“Honestly, I would much rather get turned away at the door than to have to send a picture of myself wearing a dress,” Stark said.

Student mom Michelle Jenkins also spoke out against the school:

“I just wish they would trust our upperclassman to have some class and represent their school in a tasteful manner,” she said.

“We are obviously paying for these dresses and allowing our children to go to this dance wearing what we feel is appropriate, and I think that’s really the point here.”

“Teen expert” Rosalind Wiseman weighed-in as well:

“What we’re looking at is arbitrary standards that an adult gets to decide, and what that does is shame the young person and says, ‘You don’t get to belong here because of the way that your body looks,’”

What do you think? Is the school overstepping their boundaries by making such a dramatic request?

Wiggins’ extension with Wolves expected to be done before weekend

After various delays, Andrew Wiggins‘ five-year, $ 148-million max contract extension is expected to be complete before Saturday, Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor told KSTP’s Darren Wolfson.

The Timberwolves gather for team media day Friday, with their first training camp practice set for Saturday in San Diego.

The saga of the extension has gone beyond fan hand-wringing over whether the supremely gifted yet still unpolished Wiggins deserves a max contract. In August, Taylor stated he wanted a sit-down with his player before signing off on the deal, and later in the month, news emerged that Wiggins had terminated his agent, Bill Duffy.

Under the collective bargaining agreement, that required Wiggins to wait two weeks after changing agents to sign the contract.

Wiggins, who's been highly hyped since his early high school days in Canada, is approaching a point in his young career where he needs to make a leap. While an athletic and capable scorer, the 22-year-old has much room for improvement on both the defensive end and shooting the ball.

Magic Johnson passed up offers from Dubs, Pistons, Knicks before taking Lakers job

Whether as a player, coach, or executive, Magic Johnson has worked for no NBA organization but the Los Angeles Lakers, so perhaps it was inevitable that he’d end up back with the franchise.

But before he took the job as the Lakers' president of basketball operations back in February, Johnson apparently had offers to join the ownership groups or front offices of at least three other teams. Johnson said on ESPN's First Take that Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob, Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores, and New York Knicks president Steve Mills all came calling at various points in time, and that he gave them all the same answer: "I'm a Laker."

Report: Silver advocating for lottery reform before 2017-18 season

The NBA is trying to solve the problem of tanking by taking away the main incentive behind the controversial team-building strategy.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver is a strong advocate for draft lottery reform measures to disincentivize. The NBA is aggressive in its pursuits and could vote changes into legislation before the start of the 2017-18 season, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

It's unclear as to what those reforms will look like, but Wojnarowski reports that

Watch: John Wall crosses Lil Duval into oblivion before soaring for dunk

John Wall is ruthless.

The Washington Wizards point guard suited up in Ludacris’ celebrity basketball game on Sunday and sent comedian Lil Duval flying face-first with a killer crossover before blowing to the rim for a vicious lefty slam.

Lil Duval joked on Twitter that the video is Photoshopped …

… while everyone else laughed at his expense.

That’s gotta hurt.

Watch: Peyton Manning delivers speech before Tennessee scrimmage

Tennessee had plenty of motivation prior to its scrimmage Wednesday night, as five-time NFL MVP and Volunteers legend Peyton Manning stopped by the locker room to deliver a pregame speech to this year's squad.

"A lot of people have already made their assumptions, 'Hey this is what they are going to do,' but only you guys know what this team is going to be about," Manning said. "Block out all the noise, stay in house together.

"The best teams were guys that stayed together, they didn't blame each other, we didn't call press conferences, we didn't say, 'I did my part, he didn't do his job.' We stuck together and that's how you win."

Manning also gave a nod to Tennessee head coach Butch Jones, assuring the players that both he and their bench boss will be providing constant support.

"Coach (Butch) Jones, I promise you, has your backs, and you need to have his back, and you stick together at all times," Manning said. "That's what being Tennessee is all about, and I promise you I got your back. I'm pulling for you."
