Poor jocks. Heaven forbid their exclusive club get the doors blown off and everyone be allowed to show off their accomplishments.
hey moron - there's a reason it's called a "VARSITY JACKET" & not a "club jacket" or a "i don't want to feel left out jacket"
The conflict comes from the fact that football players are facing the reality that their 'sport' is as much of a sport as dancing and band...
...except marching band is more physically demanding over the long-term.
We had a football player do marching band one year and he was one of the first people to pass out during practice.
