It’s safe to assume that the Mighty Mites of Wallkill, N.Y. were pumped up after winning their home opener, 24-0. But is it also fair to suggest that they might’ve been a little exhausted after they pushed their six and seven-year-old bodies to the pee-wee football limit? How else could you explain their failure to run through this banner, and get leveled by the damn thing at the same time?
First of all, what team runs through a banner after the game? And then, shame on the parents for not holding that thing with authority. How is a group of youngsters supposed to tear through a flimsy hold? That’s just physics, people. Finally, after a little digging, it looks like the banner was actually made of vinyl, not paper. Apparently, this banner from hell was in two pieces, held together by Velcro, and was supposed to tear easily. Blame the company that made the banner, blame the parents for not exploring their options in banner manufacturers, but don’t blame the Mighty Mites of Wallkill, N.Y.
