Omaha World-Herald reports that, Christian Standhardinger, a Nebraska transfer who had planned to enroll at LaSalle was arrested in Lincoln, Nebraska park for public indecency.

They go on to say he was found with pants down and his shirt off next to his car with a young lady who was also shirtless.It was 15 degree weather.

After this news, LaSalle coach John Giannini denied the transfer. Sophomore Standhardinger had averaged 9.5 for six Nebraska games before quitting the team.

Here's the problem with this story: A German guy named Standhardinger standing out in a cold Nebraska park, pants on the ground, young lady next to him trying to keep warm by cuddling some part of his body? 

I'm sorry, but that's too ironic, name wise. Junior high is coming out. A guy named Standhardinger, standing, possibly sexually excited, hold his... This challenges my stand-up comedy inclinations. The story makes you ask questions. It also makes you want to write a poem:

Cornhusker found in Lincoln park

Pants on the ground but in the dark

Mister Christian Standhardinger

Was he getting a humdinger?


Fifteen degrees, next to his car

With a girlfriend, quite close, not far

Mister Christian Standhardinger

Was he getting a humdinger?


The cop found no shirt on his gal

Enough to ban him from LaSalle

Mister Christian Standhardinger

Was he getting a humdinger?


Making fun of the young man's name

For mocking him, need you feel shame

If you're an uptight right-winger

Was he getting a humdinger?


The guy plays basketball, but where?

He's transferring, but who would dare

Accept him, of his own free will

Rick understands, at Louisville.


There's a back table, you need know

Where you drop trou, if you go

Where no cop be to shine his light

Your girl can join you for the night.
