  1. Horray!!!! Playing football in late August and early September was a tremendous hazard to the team and cheerleaders, band and dance lines. The best news of all to come from the coronovirus.

    • Amen, sister. I don’t know how we did it when we were it high school, marching in the summer heat wearing polyester uniforms. T-shirt and shorts under a tuxedo dickie collar and long-sleeved coat with
      pants, cummerbund and sash. White gloves, long white gym socks, shiny white shoes topped with a Shako helmet and bright orange plume. But wearing it made you feel like a million bucks.
