Every night at 8 p.m. on MSNBC, Keith Olbermann awards his daily pick for "Worst Person in the World." Some contenders are lucky — or unlucky —enough to be nominated more than once.

The Bronze goes to whoever thought it would be funny to position an actual supermarket shopping cart atop of the flagpole outside the Ralph’s supermarket in Pasadena, California.  When a store employee went out to raise the flag last Saturday morning, the 50 pound cart dropped onto her head.  She is still in the hospital in serious, but stable condition with a broken neck. 

The runner up: Mack Malone, football coach in Willis High in Willis, Texas. 

There was a blood drive at the school on Monday, Malone saw six of his high school players giving blood right before a football practice, so naturally he kicked them off the team.  Then he calmed down and put them back on the team, but Malone took their starting jobs away from them and suspended them for an additional game.  That might cost some of them chances at college scholarships. 

I’m missing something here.  This jack-ass still has a job? 

But the winner is Wayne Derkotch of Philadelphia, who was dissatisfied with the amount of playing time his son was getting at his football game.

Mr. Derkotch first got into an argument with the team’s coach, then a fistfight, and then he drew a loaded 357 magnum from his waistband and threatened the coach with it. 

This was at a pee-wee football game with six and seven-year-olds. 

Mr. Derkotch, maybe when you get out of jail, you can give the coach Malone a call out there in Willis, Texas. 

Wayne Derkotch, is Wednesday's “Worst Person in the World.”
