Good News from America's Dairy land.
Local Newspapers are starting to comment about
the deleterious and non-lifetime sport activities
in our Schools.
It has taken me over twenty years and many
travels but UW Lacrosse Phy. Ed. graduate
student teachers will now go out to schools
and teach Table Tennis to our next
generation of children.



Bad News from America's Dairy land.
Not one University in this State offers
TT as an Interscholastic Olympic Sport.
( It's no wonder you will never see
the USA doing well in the Olympics!)

 Question: Why do individuals play a sport that requires a helmet? Answer: So we don't break our neck as we try to spear the other guy. In the1950's Chairman Mao instituted the Olympic sport of Table Tennis, ... America doesn't have any role models or benefactors for this safe, co-educational family sport. Our culture is dominated by team sports. Consequently, upon leaving school we are doomed to be T.V. spectators and couch potatoes. It is sad commentary that we get satisfaction out of watching two helmets smashing together... Instead of Mr..... "It's a family tradition" singing ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL a warning label should say ARE YOU READY FOR SPEARING AND PARALYSIS.

"HOPE"

  I would think an Educator with a Doctorate, and especially a
public servant, would have the common sense to know what is
best for us and use our money and resources entrusted to them to teach us
meaningful lifetime sports activities !

# 1 Asinine statement made by a teacher: "I teach football, a sport that turns boys into men."
(this guy was injected with a Bo-vine hormone!
