NFL Preseason. With regular kicker Shayne Graham dealing with an injured groin, Chad Ochocinco kicked the game-winning extra point late in the first half as the Bengals beat the Patriots in a preseason matchup. []

And now, the severe beating of a parish school bus driver. A 29-year-old mother in Richmond, Louisiana has been booked on charges that she allegedly beat the snot out of her daughter’s bus driver. She is facing chrages of battery of a schoolteacher and simple battery of the infirm. According to a report, “…a Ouachita Parish School bus driver said the woman showed up at her house Tuesday evening and struck her in the mouth, causing bleeding, because she thought the bus driver was mean to her daughter.” Smart thinking. I’m sure her daughter is really going to appreciate being referred to as the “girl with the crazy mom that beats up bus drivers” for the rest of her years in school, because kids forget about things like that all the time. Good job, Mom of the Year. [Yahoo!/AP]
