They take High School Football seriously in Texas. They sell season tickets, treat Friday Nights with the same reverence they do Sunday mornings, and in the case of one school in the Dallas area, they build $60 million dollar stadiums to play in. When I first heard the story of them spending that much on a high school stadium I actually got nauseous. Seriously nauseous. Voters approved it. They are paying the bill. But it makes me wonder… In an era when programs in schools are being cut (full disclosure here since I’m an artist) like art and music programs and teachers are either losing jobs or enduring pay cuts I think that maybe our priorities are a bit out of whack. What do you think?
