    Mass. grade school bans tag

    This is how sad it's getting at some schools. Are you kidding me! :

    Mass. grade school bans tag, other chase games

    Officials at an elementary school south of Boston have banned kids from playing tag, touch football and any other unsupervised chase game during recess for fear they'll get hurt and hold the school liable.

    This just in:
    All forms of fun officially banned.
    From now on, all students must sit silently at their desks and absorb knowledge directly from a ethernet cable connected to their brain...

    I agree, this is pretty sad.

    Am I the only one that thought of tag body spray? I mean touch tag the game?! It didn't even cross my mind.

    I thought of some kid wearing tag body spray getting sexually harassed by a teacher. Or spraying it in someones eye LMAO

    Del Rio...when i first saw the article I thought it was a body spray ban. But the game of tag or touch football come on! I saw some place were they don't even play kick ball. Now in Minnesota we use to play kick ball ALL the time in middle school.

    I was on the same page as you Del, I thought maybe the kids were all trying to carry them around our something...
    funny stuff!

    as far as banning fun....they probably got sued over a kid scraping their knee by a stupid parent and had to do it for financial reasons.... I don't agree with it, but there are a lot of STUPID people out there looking to sue for any reason.

    Thanks Lotza!

    That is sad.
    There is one way to let kids have fun, and not have to worry abuot getting sued.
    Have parents sign injury wavers.

    Most parents will not have any problem signing htem and if they do, no "fun" at recess for their kids.

    I thought so to.
    My kid carries a gallon jug of that stuff around with him.
    Can't stand to let him in my truck sometimes.

    Wonder what they do at recess if they can't run, jump or play?
    ???
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Well it's Mass. I mean they are worried kids start playing tag trying to claim who is IT and who is not, next thing you know you have people hanging each other due to heresay and witchcraft.

    They gotta be careful in them parts.
