What does a high school football player do when his team is up 52-7 and he hasn't played since the 1st Half?It's pretty bad when you're cheering for the other team to make a first down in the first half. Everyone on our side cheered when the other team made a touchdown. Final score: 59-7. The state instilled a "mercy rule" about 3 or 4 years ago: when a team is winning by 35 points, the clock runs continuously. It help keeps the score and humiliation down.
Note: the score was 42-0 at halftime; the starters were taken out after that. Our last td was scored off an interception at about our own 30 yard line. That 3rd stringer was really, really happy!
