Study Finds “Under the Bleachers” Where All the Good Shit Happens
SPOKANE, WA — In the latest study published in the American Journal of Sociology, researchers from Gonzaga University confirmed, with absolute certainty, that “under the bleachers” is where all the good shit happens.
The data was conclusive across all known demographic categories. Regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic background, the bleachers are where it all goes down. “We found roughly 87% of respondents either smoked tobacco or marijuana for the first time under the bleachers, and 71% said it was the where they made it to first, second, and third base,” said lead researcher Emily Blockhouse.
The published study also reports over 65% of peer-to-peer exchanges of Playboy, Hustler, and Sports Illustrated Swim Suit issues commence under the bleachers. It is also the location of the vast majority of “blood pacts” and “ritualistic alter sacrifices to the sun god Ra.”
While other locales, such as “the basement,” provided ample opportunity for drinking beer or feeling each other up, it did not allow for activities that required fire or drawing blood. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Blockhouse and her team found that a makeshift fort in the middle of the woods allowed for a variety of knife play and sacrificial ceremonies. Although, it came at a cost — girls.
“There’s just no place like under the bleachers,” said Blockhouse, “it is a vortex at the center of a Venn diagram of shenanigans.”
