SF's High Schools Ban High-Fives in Girls Soccer

Well, we all know how violent girls can be, no? Well, High Schools in SF have banned High Fives and after-game handshakes in girls soccer because of violence.

From now on, anyone who even utters a word to the opposing team will be subject to a penalty -- "even if they are engaged in benign dialogue or other benign activities,'' the commissioner said.
