TelegraphWorrying reports of creepy clowns scaring members of the public have spread across the United States after a new alleged sighting.

After reports of creepy clowns trying to lure children into woods in South Carolina, Jamie Hill posted a photo of a clown she claims she spotted on the 192 highway in the city of London, Kentucky. …

Police in South Carolina town have warned that anyone dressed as a clown could face arrest after reports of mystery figures frightening members of the public.

Clowns have also been spotted in North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama, WTVQ reports.

I agree with Jamie Hill of Kentucky and law enforcement that something has to be done about this clown epidemic before somebody gets hurt.

Namely, me.

I’ve survived a lot over the last few years. The two Super Bowls That Shall Not Be Named. The 2014-15 Red Sox. The campaign. Deflategate. A dozen Taylor Swift breakups. “Batman v. Superman.” But I will not make it through scary, random clown sightings on a regular basis. I simply will not.

I mean, who does that? Who would possibly put on the clown makeup and a tutu and stand by a highway sign in London, Kentucky? I’ll tell you who. Someone with a cabin way out back in the woods where they chain you up and torture and kill people.

And that’s the best-case scenario. More realistically I think no human could be this demented. And that these are really demons here to drag us back to their hell dimension where everybody is a clown and lives in a circus tent and the animals are all balloon animals and all you hear is calliope music drowning out the sound of human screams.

So I appreciate that our brave men and women in blue are starting to round up these horrible beasts to put an end to this clown epidemic once and for all. But I’d rather we just start shooting them to drive them back to the clown hell they come from so I can sleep at night.

Pete Carroll

Pete Carroll

— Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he was “disappointed” with the NFL’s decision to hand out fines and take away a 2017 fifth-round draft pick as punishment for allowing excessive contact during a non-contact organized team activity in early June.

The Seahawks, who also ran afoul of the rule in 2014, were fined $400,000 and will lose a week of OTAs — for which players still will be paid — in 2017. Carroll was fined an additional $200,000.

The league said Carroll was responsible for the practices and needs to intervene when “prohibited conduct occurs.”

“We’re trying to do this really well and trying to be great at it, and I was really disappointed it came to this. But they’ve got to do what they’ve got to do,” Carroll said. “We’re going to continue to work really hard to do this really well. We practice hard around here, we always have, and we have to do it right. We’ve made strong efforts to do that, but we’re still working at it.”

Carroll said in the incident in question, on June 6, two younger players collided while pursuing the ball during a drill, causing both to be injured.

“They both got banged in the head pretty good,” Carroll said.

The league and the NFL Players Association reviewed the practice video and agreed the team violated the contact rule.

— Tim Tebow began his stint with the Mets’ instructional league team, working out with the squad in Port St. Lucie, Florida, in front of hundreds of fans.

Wearing No. 15 (the same number he wore as a quarterback), Tebow displayed some power during batting practice but also showed that he has a long way to go.

“It was a lot of fun,” Tebow told reporters. “It was great. It was great to be on a team. It was great to just go through a warmup and go through drills, just have fun, take BP, get to know all the guys, try to remember as many names as possible.”

Tebow, who received a $100,000 bonus when he signed with the Mets earlier this month, has not played organized baseball since his junior year of high school.

“It was one of the hardest decisions of my life to choose football over baseball,” Tebow said. “There were a lot of times at Florida where I thought about going out and starting baseball. And then over the course of the last few years it’s something I’ve thought about a bunch.

“My first sporting activity, I played for the White Sox at Normandy Baseball Park. I didn’t want to put down a bat since.”

Meanwhile, Tebow jerseys started appearing on the Mets’ online shop over the weekend and were listed as the top seller on Fanatics and MLB’s online shop Monday.
