I just saw this and was outraged. This is courtesy of www.thelifefiles.com.
"We just caught a recent episode Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel and were surprised to learn that in schools all across America various Principals and gym teachers are changing physical education the way we remember it. Games like dodgeball, jump rope and tag which may cause kids to get hurt are being removed for safer games - like playing tag by stepping on someones shadow, not touching them and jumping rope without the actual rope, just moving your hands like a crazy person. Taking it one step further other gym teachers are removing all games that require competition, so the kids can never be “winners” or “losers” again. Sounds like fun………
Is this as stupid as we think it is??? Or are these teachers right….
Now would be time to talk about you bitter childhood memories….LOSER! (we kid.)"
HOW RIDICULOUS IS THAT? BULLSHIT!
