There have been a ton of submissions for Realest of the Week in the last couple days, namely Ken Jennings and Mel Gibson. But Syracuse wide receiver Max Meisel - all 5-foot-4 of him - is a hero.
I mean, the guy got carried off the field in the Spring Game.
But it's what he did high school that must be acknowledged over 2 years later.
From the local ABC station in Weston, CT (who, unfortunately can't spell the kid's name right):
Max Miesel didn't get very far with his prom date – who's a porn star.
Max won a date with adult film actress Tyler Faith on Howard Stern's show Friday. Max is a student at Connecticut's Weston High School.
The Advocate of Stamford reports school officials and Max's parents stepped in before Saturday's prom. Max said his dream was to take a porn star to the dance. But it was dream unfulfilled.
Weston High Principal Mary Kolek says a date with a porn star violates the school's prom guidelines.
Kolek said Max would be allowed to attend – with a more appropriate date.
Really, Principal Kolek? It was in the guidelines that no porn stars are allowed at prom? We find that hard to believe...
Let's hope this story gains legs and she must answer the public's outcry over this matter...
