NCAA secondary violations are the best, or the worst, depending on your view. We’ve had Urban Meyer passing a phone to Tim Tebow, telling a recruit “good luck,” a game of paintball, and Josh Pastner accidentally tweeting a name based on a nagging, pregnant wife.
You can add having a comedian make some funnies to the list.

A comedian who provided what were described as “ludicrous stretching exercises” and then tried to teach the finer points of a home run trot constituted a secondary violation. Why? Because it was impermissible coaching. (Also, I’m assuming the comedian was Miguel Angel Jimenez, though it is not stated.)
