Unhealthy sport: Nebraska college football player destroys paper towel dispenser after loss

 I’m a big fan of paper towels in any sort of public bathroom. The friction of wiping hands thoroughly with paper towel has been shown to remove a couple of log worth of bacteria.

And I can understand that Nebraska college football players may be disappointed after abandoning the Big 12 for the seductive lure of the Big 10, only to get thrashed by new conference rivals, Wisconsin, 48-17.

But don’t take it out on the paper towel dispenser.

USA Today reports defensive tackle Chase Rome was given a $326 ticket for damaging a paper towel dispenser at a Madison airport while waiting to fly back to Lincoln, Nebraska.

Rome, who was credited with two tackles in the game, allegedly ripped the dispenser off the wall.

"The paper towel dispenser was totaled," Dane County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Elise Schaffer told madison.com.
