5-at-10: Cheapskate Braves fail by letting Donaldson walk

FILE - In this Aug. 31, 2019, file photo, Atlanta Braves third baseman Josh Donaldson throws to first for the out on Chicago White Sox's Eloy Jimenez during the sixth inning of a baseball game in Atlanta. The Minnesota Twins and Donaldson have agreed to a four-year contract, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press. The contract includes an $8 million club option for 2024. The 34-year-old third baseman returned after an injury-spoiled 2018 to bat .259 with 37 homers and 94 RBIs last season. (AP Photo/Butch Dill, File)

Bad stories are bad. They're bad stories.

But not unlike the key to real estate, when bad stories happen in familiar places, well, location is crucial.

That's the multiplier in the lawsuit filed against a college football program and its head coach alleging hazing.

Because, while no one wants any hazing anywhere, the location - and the diction - here are key.

It happened in State College, Pennsylvania, with Penn State players who, according to the lawsuit, rubbed their privates in the faces of underclassmen, rubbed their privates against the buttocks of underclassmen, wrestled down and humped on top of underclassmen and frequently said, seriously, "I'm going to Sandusky you."

Yes, that last reference is to the sexual predator Jerry Sandusky, the longtime Penn State defensive coordinator who molested little boys in the Penn State locker room while Joe Paterno and the powers that be at the university turned a blind eye to the entire mess.
