Places you can usually get away with foul shit: prison, Poughkeepsie, high school cafeteria kitchens. Places you usually can't: football fields with a referee standing behind you. Illinois linebacker Jonathan Brown learned that lesson the hard way yesterday, when he got flagged for kneeing Northwestern offensive lineman Patrick Ward in the balls. Brown actually peeked around to see if anyone was watching and, apparently not seeing the ref standing directly behind him, initiated said ball kneeing. Smart.
