John Rich Takes Another Shot At Nike, A Texas High School Football Team Scores Their First Win In 8 Years, And A Virginia Man Has A “Shocking” Way To Keep Kids Off His Yard

La Crosse, WI, United States / KICKS 106.3

John Rich took one final shot at Nike yesterday in his Twitter war against the shoe maker after the stock market closed on Tuesday. The Big & Rich singer turned to Twitter yesterday morning to post a since-deleted screenshot showing that Nike’s stock closed down by more than three percent after public protests over a new ad featuring Colin Kaepernick. As you know, Nike launched a new ad campaign on Monday to mark the 30th anniversary of its Just Do It campaign, featuring the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback with the slogan, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” Source: tasteofcountry.com

It’s been a long time since this high school has had a taste of victory – but after almost a decade of losses, their team finally pulled through. The Diamond Hill-Jarvis Eagles high school football team of Fort Worth, Texas won their first game in 8 years earlier this week. In the first game of the season, the players won 40 to 12 against Conrad High School, marking the end of their 77-game losing streak. When the students returned to class on Friday morning, the school held a spontaneous parade through the hallways so that the players could high five their peers and revel in their success – all while the theme from the Rocky played over the speakers.

A Sandston, VA man was tired of students making a mess in his yard as they waited for their school bus, so he came up with a “shocking” solution.” He erected an electric fence separating his yard from the school bus stop. The man — whose name is Bryan, said the waiting students don’t respect other peoples’ land, and that he has to pick up trash every day. Bryan said No Trespassing signs he put up years ago have made no impact. He said he ultimately removed the fence Tuesday, not because of any potential danger it may pose to students and passersby, but rather he learned he placed the fence on county property — not his own land. Bryan said while he would consider putting up another fence, he hoped he would not have to do so. He says since parents are posting and talking about it, he thinks the message gas gotten across.
