University Suspends Dirty Dance Team

Perhaps I'm just a bit jaded, but when the coach of the dance team is best known as a SaberKitten (the name for cheerleaders for San Jose Sabercats of the Arena Football League), is it any surprise that her students are going to pick up a few pointers?

SAN JOSE, Calif. Apr 9, 2005 - San Jose State has suspended its dance team after a sexy routine at a basketball game triggered a confrontation involving one of the performers.

The team is suspended until it develops guidelines to represent the university "at the highest possible standard," the division of intercollegiate athletics decided last week.

The move came a month after a shouting match between an elderly alumnus and 20-year-old dancer Tarah DiNardo, whose arm was apparently bruised by a university sports official who intervened.

The confrontation - captured on videotape by a parent - erupted after a dance during a March 5 home game to the raunchy lyrics of "Move Somethin'" by LL Cool J.

Having solved all of California's fiscal problems, I'm certain some state legislator will introduce a harebrained bill to ban dirty dancing. Of course that will lead to 'Baby' going summer retreat and learning the ways of the world from Patrick Swayze, ...oops..., wrong story.

For the gawkers: Here's the only Tarah DiNardo picture available (she's the one dancing and out of focus), and a link to a more detailed telling of the story in the school paper.

I don't think this is a dance team scandal. It is the fan that went out of control. The police should have bruised his arm while they ejected him from the game.

One of our state reps, Al Edwards, has already introduced that legislation here in Texas.
