Honoring our dead reduced to standing for anthem at games

Now, we might be in trouble.

After nine months of high school sports, there is nothing left.

By the time anyone reads this, it will be all over.

Memorial Day is the official end of the high school season, at least in Maryland, and now scary times are ahead.

From the sports side, all the games, stats and human interest that goes with local sports is at a stand still.

It’s break time as seniors graduate and underclassman begin preparing in earnest for the 2022-23 seasons.

But there is more — at least symbolically — missing.

Like it or not, this break in prep sports also starts a break in patriotism as we know it.

This will be labeled as a stretch by many, but many will be taking a break from Americana as they pack up and head to a beach somewhere.
