Football is power
Football is Power
Taylor Cole

It’s so interesting to think about the power that football holds in our society. When I was in high school I saw an instance of how it affected journalists in the area. The Sunday paper came out and the sports section was dominated by a piece on how the high school team lost and it was a pretty dull game overall. This section took up pretty much the whole page with a big color picture and everything and then off to the side — taking about an eighth of the page — was a tiny picture of our cross country boy’s captain and a few sentences saying that he had won state. Priorities clearly a bit skewed…

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
