To continue with our "Harlem Shake" theme this week on Outside the Boxscore, we have this version done by a high school hockey team in New York.
The video was done by a group of 16/17-year olds on the Nyack-Tappan Zee High School co-op hockey team and overall, it looked pretty harmless:
However, the fine folks over at Sports Grid have informed us that the team forfeited their opening round Section I playoff game against Lakeland-Panas and while no reason was given, some of the players speculated that the video was the reason why:
“We were forfeited from playoffs for a borderline inappropriate video in the locker room of Harlem shake,” Ice Hawks senior forward Corey Aronson tweeted on Friday to a friend."While the playoff forfeit seemed a bit harsh, I can understand why the parents/adults decided to pull the team from the game.
It looks like another meme has ruined lives....
