I was never in the band (it’s best for everyone that I’m not allowed near anything that resembles an instrument), but I had many friends who were. My husband was a high school band member, and now my brother is, as well.
This got to me through Facebook and it’s ridiculous and infuriating. I think it’s time that we got really loud about the entitlement attitude in high school sports and throw some support behind bands like this one.
Someone needs a lesson in the spirit of “unsportsmanlike conduct.”
fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.
