    community.  I can only speak for ours.  And in our community the football team is not venerated in this way.  But at our school, the major athletic successes occur in other sports - lacrosse, baseball, field hockey, ice hockey, soccer, tennis etc.  So football isn't the only game in town.

    I was not the one to suggest marching bands at cross country meets - I just went with what I thought was a humorous vision.  And one that our music director will find hilarious as well.

    So don't misinterpret what I am saying.  I am fully on board with the concept that at some (perhaps many) schools football rules the roost and that gets taken to ridiculous heights.  But I think that the sport - like all sports and activities -is a good opportunity to learn and grow and is a good opportunity to be abused as well.
