Our academic standards have fallen lower than those in the third world! Why? Over-emphasis on sports, for one thing. Very few students progress from high school sports to professional teams; for the rest, it is a terrible priority and waste of students’ time and taxpayers’ money. I say limit sports to P.E. classes and run their fat little asses around the track to shape up!

I couldn’t agree more.

One of my former housemates is a H.S. Basketball ref. The horror stories he tells about students and parents who take this stuff way, way too seriously ... we live in a very white, very affluent town ... these kids are NOT going to play in the NBA.
