NFL  > General NFL  > How weird was your high school sports?
July 2, 2010, 02:15 PM
A little out of place I know but I was thinking random thoughts. As im sure most other schools in other states, we would have a sport assigned and we would play it for a couple months in class and move on to the next. Going to high school in TN in the 90's we didn't really know hockey other than what was seen from movies and Olympics. When time for hockey came, our coach wrapped an empty Skoal can with electrical tape and we used that as a puck for floor hockey......
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Bombardment with those little cherry rubber balls, they left welts. Roller Hockey was an adventure for those who couldn't skate. The Trampoline was taken out after someone suicide dove and got their head stuck between the springs.

Ouch, I remember that. One time 1/2 the dodge balls went flat so we played tennis dodge ball.... and yes we used the rackets...LOL

Maybe not so stupid..... think about it. Two kids all hot and bothered about fighting ready to light it up....Coach says go get permission from your parents and we'll have a good ol boxin match.
Well kids gotta tell folks they are in a fight, kids know they probably don't know how to box and may look stupid and Oh By the Way how many fights were there after everyone went home and it all calmed down? None. Maybe not so stupid.

PS doesn't mean the kids didn't meet in the parking lot and duke it out.

Oh, I'm not against the idea, for exactly the reasons you give. But this guy seriously was goofy. Most guys, me included, knew enough not to bring it up to mom and dad. We just fought after school as necessary.

That is how we did it also Jack, didnt involve the parents...LOL

I once scored on my own goal my junior year. That was a long way from when my class won our 1st grade floor hockey tournament in gym class.

WE HAD A COACH THAT WAS AN OLD 'NAM VET. EVERY CONVERSATION ALWAYS FADED TO A 'NAM STORY. IT WAS ESPICALLY FUNNY WHEN IT WAS TIME FOR THE SEX ED SESSION. A GOOD EXAMPLE WAS ONE TIME HE WAS SHOWING HOW TO PUT A CONDOM ON A BANANNA AND THE STORY FADED INTO PUTTING CONDOMS ON THE BARRELS OF M16s SO THAT THEY DIDNT GET MUD IN THEM...HAHAHAHA

the sports weren`t weird, the coach was ! We used to call him coach Meatwatcher, he used to make all of us get in the shower and stand there making sure we were "clean" by staring at our junk ! The dude was a freak but highly regarded in the community. It was ok in the 70`s, but I`m sure wouldn`t pass now a day`s.

I always petitioned for co-ed showers but for some reason the idea never caught on....LOL

I went to a Catholic school... sex ed was about 2 classes a year where Priests talked about VD and passed around pictures of STDs.

I loved my high school basketball games. I live in Indiana where it's basketball crazy. Our gym seated 5000 plus people



That's the best picture I could find, but it was an amazing time at the games

I had a teacher who was a sub. He was a nam vet also. The kids in my class loved anime. My friend Zack said something from a Japanese anime to his Cousin Doug from across the class room. The teacher Mr.smith went off on Zack. Mr.smith thought Zack said something degrading to people from Vietnam/Japan.

But it was just something stupid from an anime.

My years were a disappointment. The year we got to high school, our football program moved from Div. 2A (State Champs) to 3A. My class was the first class in forever to not win a homecoming.
