High School Football

This just happened at my school, I thought you guys in this group would like it: This week on the announcements, our sports director told us about the new rules for football games. None of them were too bad, except for not being allowed to take off our shirts (sports bras for girls) any more, in order to paint our chests. We were all pissed, and determined to do something about it, so this night at the game, the entire spirit section (huge) just sat their quietly and didn't cheer at all. By half-time, we were down 9-0 and the cheerleaders were pissed that we wouldn't even stand up. The principal called down the kid in charge and they talked for a bit. When he came back up, he told us that she had agreed to not wearing shirts on the homecoming game, as long as we didn't use the "Bullshit" chant. A few minutes later, someone else went down and talked to her, they convinced her to withdraw the policy starting next week, if we would start to cheer this game. In the end, it was a great success, and we won the football game, too!

We made them listen. Having a school with absolutely no spirit really looks bad for the principal. Especially when our school is generally known for our spirit. Afterward, they even sent a message to the press box thanking us for standing up.
Yeah, school spirit is a constructive outlet for potentially destructive students.
That is freakin awesome
