What Are You Passionate About? Create Your Own Stag Do
A man’s stag party does not always have to follow tradition. As a matter of fact, some men already know what they want to celebrate their last night of freedom. Kevin Kimmes happens to be one of those men. As an avid baseball fan, he already knew what he wanted for his stag do.
For him, it was something that he put off for some time thinking that it was not really possible. Number 139 on “The Baseball Fan’s Bucket List” book is to “throw out the first pitch.” Read on to see if his dream stag do became a reality.
Though this sport is not as popular in Europe as it is in the United States, everyone still knows about this sport. However, for Kevin, it was really the sport that he has known and loved for a very long time. That’s the reason why he bought that book.
In the US, there are all sorts of leagues for baseball from Little League which are composed of baseball teams for kids up to Major League for professional players. In between, there are also other leagues that compete within their region.
Dream Stag Do
When Kevin’s brother found out what he wanted, he jokingly asked if his brother was aiming to pitch for Little League. He also said that the Brewers might not allow him to make the first pitch in their game just because he’s getting married. Kevin said that he was aiming to pitch for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers instead.
His brother was surprised that the Rattlers were willing to let him throw the first pitch. Kevin was given the chance to do so on Cinco de Mayo, no less. In addition to pitching, he got to keep the ball and got the signature of the game’s catcher.
His dream was to have that special day spent doing baseball activities. That included throwing the first pitch at a game, tailgating, and batting at batting cages. Kevin Kimmes got the stag do that he wanted from the start and that makes his stag do a success.
What Stags Want
Other stags might not be into baseball as much as Kevin, but they surely have something that they are passionate about. Chances are, that would be football. Nowadays, there are a lot of alternative stag do activities that can even include a day at the stadium where one’s favorite team trains.
Just meeting and greeting those football stars can already make some stags’ dream come true. As much as possible, the stag party organizer should find out about such things before planning for a stag night or weekend for the celebrant. Just like Kevin, the groom-to-be might have his own bucket list of things that he’d want to do before getting married.
Planning for a stag night or weekend that the celebrant has always dreamed of having will make the whole affair unforgettable. That really is the way to go about celebrating a man’s last night or day of freedom.

Stag Do Bus Crash Scam Uncovered by the Insurer
A group of thirteen men were involved in a stag do insurance scam in Newcastle back in 2009. Once the scam was uncovered, all of the admitted fraud and said that they “bitterly regretted” the scam.
Last month, a mini bus did crash as a hen group was on their way to a Liverpool hen party. That crash left eleven hens seriously injured and claimed one life. That’s why a scam such as this really is a bad joke.
How It Was Staged
The thirteen men setup the whole crash scene between a car and a mini bus. When the paramedics got to the scene, everyone was alright. In fact, the “stag group” was found laughing, talking on their cellular phones, and smoking. They claimed that they were driving to a stag do when they crashed with the car.
After a few minutes, it was like domino effect after one of them started holding his neck and said he suffered an injury because of the crash. The rest of them followed suit and said they had whiplash injuries.
All of them were brought to the hospital where they were examined. X-rays were taken and some of them left with neck braces. However, after a few hours, they all had a rather dramatic recovery and were all fine after that.
Uncovering the Scam
The group walked away with £134,000 in their pockets from the insurance company. It wasn’t until recently that their scam was uncovered. The insurer, Aviva, made an investigation and alerted the police as soon as they discovered that the couple in the car, Ben LeBlond and Marnie Simpson, which crashed into the mini bus knew everyone in the “stag group.”
It turns out that both vehicles were already damaged before they were brought to the crash scene. The whole group just set it up as if they crashed into each other then and there.
Two members of the “stag group” pleaded guilty to fraud. LeBlond pleaded guilty as well. The three of them are still waiting for their sentence.
