Tonight the Richfield wildcats are playing the Carbon dinos for their big homecoming win. (Does everyone pick Carbon for their homecoming games to ensure that the kids all have a good time at the dance?)
I've had to put up with a lot of teasing from high school students this week because I am a dino. They don't understand in Richfield that there is no school spirit or loyalty from current or former Carbon High Dinos. It is only a small sense of nostalgia that beckons me to attend the game tonight and the chance to see some familiar faces.
Richfield really is a lot like a real life Pleasantville. The whole student body is full of school spirit. The whole town attends ALL high school sporting events. Including girls sports. And it's not just because I live in a small podunk town with nothing else to do. Price is pretty podunk and still they don't get quite the turnout that Richfield does. See how this perfect little town has me defensive?
Well...who knows what this post is about. But let's hear from all you Carbon Dinos out there who are mad about this blog...or who also have no school spirit.
