So much for being a good sport: A NYC assistant high school football coach literally bared his frustration over a controversial call by mooning the opposing team. The incident happened at a division championship game in Queens yesterday after referees ruled that Campus Magnet, up 14-6 in the fourth quarter, did in fact score during a 2-point conversion attempt; the Boys and Girls High School coaches claimed the running back had fumbled. And then things got crazy.

The coaches of the Boys and Girls team rushed the field, and reportedly started shouting obscenities. School safety officers stepped in—and promptly got shoved. With 3:49 left in the game, the game was called over unsportsmanlike conduct, giving Campus Magnet a 16-6 win. The victors then went on to heckle the losing coaches, reports the New York Daily News ... and that's when Clive Harding, ahem, lost it.
"His fellow coaches were holding him back and he turned around and pulled down his shorts," said one witness. "All I saw was his big rear end."
