    Why the hell do we need to play the national anthem at any high school games in the first place? High school games such like baseball, football, etc, etc, etc? Standing for the national anthem at every freaking sports event is just plain boring to me. Enough of this overdone crap already. I am not totally against playing the national anthem but at every sporting event everywhere, everytime, everygame? I don't think so.

    Seriously, get rid of the goddamn anthems. And while I'm on the subject, stop making minors pledge allegiance to something.

    Hey, heres an idea:

    HS: "Sir, we are a public school without alot of money, we cant afford the entire time. We may have to cut the national anthem just to fit the game in, unless we can work something out"

    Private sector ice rink owner: "OH NO....God no, dont do that. Tell you what....we'll give you 20 minutes of ice time for free, and you just pay for the rest"

    HS: "Oh thank you!!"


    BUT INSTEAD....

    HS: "We may have to cut some time, like the anthem"
    Private sector ice rink owner: "Hey, money is money, time is money. You cant afford it, you dont get time. Even at the cost of the national anthem. In fact, cut govt spending, you shouldn't pay for that time anyway with my tax dollar."




    The HS didn't have to do that. The private sector ice rink could've donated the 5 minutes worth of extra time....right?
