Graduation or state meet -- oh well, the stars didn't align this time. Just like the real world. Those seniors who have to choose are getting a good life lesson. Life's a be-atch sometimes.
Hey, I had to work on Super Bowl Sunday and missed a stunning Patriots win! Waaaaahhhhhhhh!
The link to the news item did note:
"The revised schedule has a time slot at 11:50 a.m. on Sunday to honor those seniors who will be missing their graduation. They are encouraged to wear caps and gowns. Their coaches must check in to the inquiry table in order to participate."
That's a decent gesture, I'd say.
Interesting juxtaposition in tone. You come off as a jerk in the first part, but actually appear to support opportunity to recognize seniors.
