Paige's Iron Pigs Cheer

Paige's special cheer:

Step up left, step up right, 1,3,4,9 - drink some Sprite. GO IRON PIGS.

When I asked her what the numbers were for, she said they were there so they could rhyme.

This was during our teacher outing for Next Level Development to the Iron Pigs Game.

Isn't it ironic? Finger bitten off during California health protest

(AP) – 8 hours ago

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — California authorities say a clash between opponents and supporters of health care reform ended with one man biting off another man's finger.

Ventura County Sheriff's Capt. Frank O'Hanlon says about 100 people demonstrating in favor of health care reforms rallied Wednesday night on a street corner. One protester walked across the street to confront about 25 counter-demonstrators.

O'Hanlon says the man got into an argument and fist fight, during which he bit off the left pinky of a 65-year-old man who opposed health care reform.

A hospital spokeswoman says the man lost half the finger, but doctors reattached it and he was sent home the same night.

She says he had Medicare.

O'Hanlon says the attacker fled but authorities have a good description.
