What next?

Oh yeah, it’s illegal so you can’t really cheat. Bring on the juice!

Having said that, according to the Charlotte Observer, more than 32 people were arrested Sunday as more than $4,000 in cash (that’s a WHOLE LOTTA DOUGH for rural South Carolina) plus about 30 roosters were seized in northwest York County in a multijurisdictional raid that officers called "Coop Bowl."

Approximately 30 officers began the operation at about 5 a.m. Sunday, according to York County Sheriff's Capt. Stanley Wells. State Law Enforcement Division officers participated with helicopters, the S.C. Department of Natural Resources with aircraft, and the Drug Enforcement Unit and York Police Department on the ground, Wells said.

Officers believe they raided the fight during the second or third fight at about 11 a.m. They found one dead rooster and two injured. The roosters had spurs fixed to their talons and had been injected with a stimulant to enhance their aggression, Wells said.

Roger Clemens was unavailable for comment.

(For the record, the University of South Carolina, it's faculty/staff nor it's students had anything to do with Coop Bowl as far as we know.)
