Just a Friday evening update to note another bloggy milestone.The Pure Florida counter just hit 40,000. It took a little over one year to hit the first 20,000 and about 2 months to register the next 20,000. Cool.
I just got back from a "Friday Nights Lights" experience watching our tiny school football team of multicolor poor public school kids do battle with a wealthy monocolor team from a wealthy private school that arrived in gleaming charter bus style buses.
Our team is tiny, a hodgepodge of skinny, fat, tall, and short kids. Everyone of them is on "free or reduced lunch" which is public school code for poor. The visitor's team looked like uberteens, all vaccuformed from the same hulking jock mold.
Even though I'm not a big sports fan, I love our football kids for their tenacity and never say die attitude. The fact is that mostly, they get beat. Still, they practice every day, and give it their all every Friday evening during the season.
I find that admirable.
