    Very Good point. I did hear today that T had a very poor fan turnout at B? If true --really hate to hear that. We have in the past "prided ourselves in traveling well." Don't want to hear any weather excuse either.

    You can't (and shouldn't) force school spirit. I almost wonder if the string of success has made it just an expectation to do well and they wonder why the need to get psyched up.

    I agree with this reason as to why Trinity has little school sprit.

    September 2005 and 2007: These guys got the brooms out a little early and were just unlucky.

    Not really. T side was full and fans lined the fence.

    I can attest to what CR saw. My girlfriend and I had to stand the whole game.

    My daughter is a freshman at SHA and she says they don't care about the game they go just to socialize. She even has a brother starting for the Rocks! I'm forcing her to go sit in the rain with her parrents at Lex Cath this weekend.

    Good for you. That is what I call sound parenting.

    Remember when?? I finally found out what "First and ten, Do it again" meant when I was a senior back in the dark ages. Of Course, a game is social.

    But you socialize while in the stands and cheering for the Rocks!
