Send this Massachusetts high-school student to the penalty box.
Via Barstool Sports, we've learned about a teenager who got detention last week when he called his teacher a "communist" because she wouldn't let him watch the Team USA hockey game. Actually, it appears he hit the "communist" hat trick.
The guy's older brother sent the above detention slip to Barstool Sports with this explanation:
My little brother goes to Walpole High School and on Thursday asked to watch the USA vs. Slovakia game during Spanish class. When his teacher said no he called her a communist. She gave him a detention for it. Attached is a picture of the detention slip she gave him. VIVA.

Now, we can't say for sure this is real. People of the Internet like to make things up in search of viral fame. But given what we've already seen about the passion for Team USA hockey, we believe this is at least very possible.
