SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

Because it might lead people to do stupid things like this:

(From McAdory High vs Pinson Valley High football playoff game in Alabama.)

(For our European friends who might not get the reference: Trail of Tears)

Guessing they're not big on Zinn's view of American history in those schools.

bender: no link to a story about the picture, as I only found a box score and a discussion about the game (where they team names, Yellow Jackets and Indians, are mentioned), not the image itself. This was posted to social media when it happened.

Are there schools that are?
