Title says it all.
If you dont want to watch the whole video, at least watch 2:05 on!
Well, I was doing a little research, and came across this:
Watch the video, it gives more information than the written.
We were discussing stuff in english, and my teacher brought up the subject of the football players. Most of us came to the same conclusion: The only reason the school came up with the athletic committee is because they know that these football players are going to do something stupid. It's just like the lady in the video says, They dont need to worry about this happening with band students...
Oh yeah, and the businesses that they mention like Gandalfos, are just down the street from the school. The football players actually burglarized all the businesses in the row: The sandwich shop, dollar cuts, and a tanning place. And I heard through rumors that one of them got out of jail around the first of september. Trust me, I know rumors are not something to rely on but they always end up being true in Utah,yes always... It's because Utah is so "clique-y", and everyone is in everyone's business.
Now I'm not sure what I think about this anymore. Oh well, just a few random thoughts.
Is all that high school revolves around, Football?
Every day during the morning announcements, the only thing the administration focuses on is sports. It's disgusting.
This summer, 6 football players that go to my school were involved with burglary and vandalism charges. The administration said they would never set foot in the Syracuse High Football Stadium again, but guess who scored the winning point at tonight's football game.
It just bugs me, everything that athletes are about. An artist can work their entire life to get to a professional athlete's level of fame, profit etc,and still not make it. But that athlete can get there in an hour of running into people on a field... I dont get the world we live in.
One of the smartest people in our school went to national science and won, and got no recognition, but this morning the principal thought it was so important to tell us that the girls soccer team lost 8-1, and how amazing our school is because of sports. A womans car flipped onto the sidewalk outside the school on monday, but it's more important to tell us that we can beat the crap out of a car with clearfield(our rival school)colors painted on it....
It's just all stupid to me.
