TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (47)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Tuesday, January 3; link good at time of posting):
Some teenage soccer players and their parents saw more sights than they wanted when they stayed at a hotel where about 200 swingers were having a New Year's Party.

The families, some who traveled from as far away as South Carolina, said the sexually adventurous partygoers sashayed through the hotel atrium, sometimes flashing breasts and bare buttocks in front of the children. The parents described the dress at the Crowne Plaza Hotel-Airport in Orlando as "raunchy, despicable and worse than prostitutes."

"We thought we were coming to Orlando, not the Las Vegas Strip," said Mark Gilbert, the father of a boy who plays on the Clearwater Chargers, a group of 13-and-under players from Florida.

. . . .

Paul Camporini brought his wife, seventh-grade daughter and eighth-grade son from Safety Harbor and said he had to "delicately explain to my Catholic school children that swingers change partners during the evening."

Camporini, 49, said his son initially did not want to travel to watch his sister play soccer but "thought it (the swingers' party) was downright hilarious."
