I would like to hear from any of you who may have been at the Burgettstown powderpuff football game, maybe we could call it the frozen football game! If you were one of us who was there then you would know what I mean, but we all sit there to watch our brave gallant girls move the ball up and down the field. I want to give you a few observations that I made during the game.
First: When we are at a boys event there is always a ambulance standing by on the side lines just in case, and if you watched this game you would know these girls are hitting and pulling each other to the ground with you guessed it no padding to protect them or even a helmet.
Second: From the first the girls had NO protection. These are our little darlings that should not be getting hit that hard with nothing to protect even there vital areas. Did we think that girls would not hit each other?
Third: They needed some form of heating on the side lines, our girl got back in the car and we could not warm her fast enough, did anyone ever hear of hypothermia?Okay I will get off my high horse, I guess I just want to look out for my kids as I am sure you do. If anyone from the school board reads this ask these questions at your next meeting I would like to know what is said on this subject.
One last thought: Why is girls sports played down against the boys sports, if you were a parent at the game you payed to get in, where does our money go if not back to our kids, yes the GIRLS! And I know they had to train hard to get ready for the season which ends after one game. We need a ledge, yes I said it, have these girls play against some other local schools and let them have their 15 minutes of fame!
Write back and comment on this I would really like to hear what you have to say.
