uh, have you seen friday night lights? nuff said (as i spit out tobacco juice on my astroturf carpet)
i run by my neighborhood park in the evening to find parents yelling at their 8 year olds for missing their routes or god forbid fumbling.
as far as xc, some of the suburbs of houston have pretty dominate programs, the woodlands(30 miles north) comes to mind. but football still rules the suburbs as well. i live in the city where their are some mighty fine sprinters.
i do alot of running around rice university and last night i got stampeded by the womens xc team. i think they were doing a TT, the coach was on the bike calling out numbers. they were hauling butt and breathing hard. a few of them were mightly cute. 😆
