54. Not all titles are for team sports...
Edited on Thu Nov-15-07 03:59 PM by redqueen
kids get hospitalized for doing performance enhancing drugs to get to be the best in sports... so why reward them for being 'the best' why not just reward a whole group for being 'really great'.

They're connected because if people think it's somehow bad to reward the best in academics, then since I don't see how it's different to reward the best in sports. So IMO if we get rid of one, we should do away with the other, too.
