Just My Opinion-Thank You!!! I was at this game and was disgusted with
this. I understand about all of the rivalry between East and Highland. I'm not
saying that the rest of the game was bad...in fact is was pretty calm and
harmless as far East-Highland games go. But the National Anthem thing really
bothered me! While all the kids may be in costume, it isn't an excuse to be
direspectful to our country. I watched and everyone in the Highland crowd was
shocked that the East kids would do that.
Highland students don't always act the way they should just as students at all
other high schools.But the East students did something I would hope
even high school student wouldn't do.During the singing of the
national anthem being performed by the boys choir they had to try and put
highland down by singing over the top of them.I'm all for high
school spirit and the students in the bleachers also trying to outdo the other
school. I actually think it make the games a lot of fun.But the East
student (and this could have been any schools students) need to understand the
national anthem is not a Highland song or any other schools song.That was the completely wrong way to try and show up Highland. All it did was
show a lack of understanding of the national anthem.Please East and
all other students show some respect for the USA and the national anthem.P.S. At multiple games I have also heard parents talking during the
national anthem also. I thought the adults would at least show respect. But I
guess that is where the students get it from.
chase SL Yeah, I think there are a bunch of folks at Highland that are glad you
aren't a Ram too.
I am so glad Im not a Ram.
last time East won a game in the series was 2003 at Highland. Since then
Highland has beaten East 16 straight times.
1991-1994, East hoops won at Highland every year. Since then, who knows?
When was the last time East won at Highland? I heard a rumor that it has been 17
years! Is that true?
