Boner Awards 2010 

Only in Tennessee can you get a hole in one playing baseball.
Opponents of allowing guns in parks seized upon the example of Nicolis Williams, a Memphis man who was attending his son’s baseball game in Bartlett, Tenn., in June when he got upset that his son wasn’t getting enough at-bats. Williams was asked to leave, a coach went to talk to him after the game, heated words were exchanged on both sides in the parking lot, and Williams evidently decided to settle the argument in the time-honored Cooperstown tradition — by pulling his licensed handgun on the coach. Williams was charged with aggravated assault, while livid arguments raged on comments threads across the state — thankfully, without weapons at hand.
