Fads In Football: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Football fans are a curious bunch. We are creatures of habit. We complain about concession prices, but shovel out eight dollars for a beer and six bucks for a dog the minute the second quarter ends. We are like sheep on an open range.
Our adherence to tradition and rituals, however, is something that makes us unique.
Most of our traditions, such as Army and Navy standing together, side-by-side after the game, are sacred. But this isn’t about traditions—it’s about fads, and while some of them need to be permanent traditions, others need to be dumped forever.
A look at some of the fads in football that have made “The good, the bad, and the ugly” list.
Charges Dropped Against Gator Bandits
Five students from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University who tried stealing a baby alligator from a miniature-golf course in Daytona Beach will get the charges dropped.
Prosecutors say as part of the plea agreement announced Monday, the students must do a year of community service. They will also have to do an anti-theft course, take random drug tests, pay fees to the city and they can’t visit the golf course.[Fort Mill Times]
