Re: Things that don't suck

This somehow seems like whiplash after reading recent posts in this thread, but I just noticed that my high school's team (well, last year's now-graduated varsity, at any rate) is on the MSHSAA front page again. The picture appears to be from our game against Pilot Grove. I probably would never have...

Being on the front of MSHSAA's home page. Yeah, I'd agree with that not sucking. We were on MSHSAA's homepage I believe it was my sophomore year, but they used a picture of the team from my freshman year. Hm... Leaving for senior trip in about 37.5 hours?
