Tweet of the Day:
In case you missed it, a scorpion invaded the team plane of the OSU men's and Portland women's basketball team this weekend. The Oregonian's Tyson Alger was there for the events, which occurred just a couple of rows away from OSU head coach Wayne Tinkle, who apparently came to the aid of the woman who was stung.
Guy saw scorpion on his shoulder flicked it off and it landed on lady and stung her. Chivalry is dead.— Tyson Alger (@tysonalger) February 15, 2015
