Oregon Middle School Football Coach Schedules Team Awards Dinner At Hooters, Is Somehow Fired
Randall Burbach is a man who lives on the edge. When the Corbett Middle School (Portland, Ore.) football coach began planning the team awards dinner, he decided to let his 12- to 14-year-old players choose the venue. And the kids of course chose to have the party at Hooters.
Plans for the dinner, first reported in the Oregonian, were outlined in a letter to parents by the school’s athletic director, J.P. Soulagnet.
“I spoke with Randy Burbach this evening and asked him to move the event to a different venue,” Soulagnet said in the letter. “He was unyielding and emphatically said no for a number of reasons. As a school district and athletic department, we do not support nor condone the decision to hold an end of season celebration at Hooter’s for any of our teams.”
So Burbach was fired (he was a volunteer coach to begin with). But since only one set of parents declined to let their son participate, the party at Hooters is still on -- they're just not referring to it as a school event.
All because one brave man took a stand for breasts.
And now, the greatest quote on the Internet so far today. Burbach:
"I'm not taking them to Hooters for the sexual overtones. If they do as well as they did for my boys when they were 12, it would be a great experience."
The Hooters chain recently turned 30 years old, and most stores have undergone a total remodeling to keep up with the times -- think Chipotle, where all of the servers are girls with large breasts wearing tank tops. It also should be noted that Hooters has a kids' menu, high chairs and booster seats. Have fun, kids!
