Shutting down the entire school system early, for a football game. We know where their priorities are, even in a so-called "good" school district.

Oh well. Good luck to Clinton. Take out the trash.

Talk to the MHSAA, they are the one's requiring schools to travel to a remote corner of the state. Schools in the south half of the state should be po'd.

Since Kingfish only published the CLINTON info Here's Pearl's:
They will do their walk through at 5pm ALL PIRATES are invited to attend.
Approximately 9:30 the PIRATES will hoist the 6A trophy in the air as the 6A State Champions.

PittPanther said...

I can understand the high school closing, but the entire school system? That's ridiculous. That will be a wasted half day for most people, that will need to be made up.

If you want to go to the game, take a day off and pull your kid out of school that day.

11:49--it's going to take a perfect game by Pearl to beat Clinton. The Arrows have a Senior QB that has thrown for 29 TD and run for 29 TD this year. The previous record was 25.

That QB isn't going to let the Arrows lose tonight. However, congratulations to both teams on making the state final game.

I'm sure Coach Mullins will be there so all the kids who want to play for him next year can meet him. #HAILSTATE #TSUNSUCKS

"Coach Mullins." That's a good one. It's Mullen, you idiot. Must hot have actually attended that school you seem to be so proud of. At least I hope you didn't. #doublewidemuch

A lot of ignorant arrogance going on in this thread. Maybe it's just rival talk.

11:49. This is 1:30. Wasn't my prediction spot-on???

PittPanter you either don't have children or don't care about children? Did it dawn on you that maybe many of the families have high school and lower school aged children? And maybe some of the teachers in lower school have children on the team? This isn't China. We can have more than one child in the USA.

The championship games are rotated among the three division 1 campi in this state, for the goob who thinks this is a chance for 'mullins' to recruit unfairly. Meanwhile, Freezus has not been seen at all this week.

The clear-bag policy is idiotic for a high school game, regardless of venue. Bet there were some pissed off fans last night.

Why would 'fans in the south half of the state be pissed off'? Jackson is no longer a safe or attractive venue for these contests. It makes perfect sense to have them in Starkville, Oxford and Hattiesburg in alternating years. Fans love to bundle up and travel to a game like this. Motels are in abundance for this type of game, folks can eat out safely and, more importantly, the kids get to experience a football field venue in which they have never played.

Congratulations to The Arrows and also the runner up for a good season.

10:46pm, because I don't think schools should be closed due to a football game implies I don't have kids or care about kids? What a stupid statement, and you're wrong on both counts.

If I didn't care about kids I would do exactly what Clinton did; close the schools. That seems the message that nothing is more important than football. Not academics, not any other extracurriculars.

You can look at my username and tell I love football, and I kiss the ground walked on by Tony Dorsett, Dan Marino, and Larry Fitzgerald. But my priorities are in the proper order, and don't include closing schools due to a game, no matter how important the game.

When Clinton closes schools due to the debate team finals, or the academic bowl finals, or for a band or symphony performance, then I'll believe they have correct priorities.

PittPanther: I'm from Johnstown PA--and when our Hockey team played for the AAA State Championship in 1994, the school cancelled class in order for the students to go down to Hershey for the finals. that's only about 75 miles from your oakland paradise..and a big bucket of "O" fries

K-12 shouldn't be all about academics--this was a chance for the students to come together and to have an experience that they will remember all their lives--and they will remember it more than some formula or practice a few more diagrammed sentences on a december friday afternoon....

@pitpuma - Clinton will be making up that day later in the year, so de-wad your panties and take your yankee ass back north.

PittPanther said...

4:11pm, Yankee? I'm not from New England...

Funny. The word you use to try to insult me, Yankee, is used by people outside of USA to insult any American, regardless of home state. But I'm pretty sure that 4:11pm hasn't set foot out of the south, let alone out of the country. Heaven forbid he try to broaden his horizons.

@pityankee - Bet you a nickel my work experience has taken me to more foreign countries than you'll ever see, let alone my military background. Nice try, dipstick.

Baltimore Terrapin said...

It's now been confirmed. Pitt-Panties was on the high-school debate team, played cornet in the symphony and was a large fan of the aroma of dressing room jock-straps. Plus he got to take names in ninth grade, another highlight of his resume.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
