Some interesting football/ sport info in today's WSJ..on the front page no less.
Has to do with the BUZZ over a Vermont HS Mascot. Seems the town of Southern Burlington VT....an upscale town of 18,000 people and home of Ben and Jerry HQ is fighting over the local HS Mascot...called the Rebels. The Board of Supervisors wants the Mascot changed in today's PC atmosphere. Yes, in the 60's the school had a Southern type flag etc., but no longer in recent decades.
Of course in the battle of mascots, the story of the Amherst College Mascot came up...caught my attention
. In any case....the story closed with a 17 year old student was quoted that the Board must have more important things to do.......give that student a spot in Amherst's class of 2022!
Oh, lots of interesting history of Vermont. Did you know that VT did not enter the US until 1794?
In general the people were Rebels in many ways and Gen. George Washington did not desire to argue with Vermonters. Agree they are "strange" people living in the Green Mountains
