High school football in Atlanta...

is quite different than it was in Potsdam circa 1995. A few examples:

Tickets are $7.00
Pep band played the Fresh Prince theme song
Over 60 players on the team
Stadium vs. metal bleachers in a field
Actual announcer with box and hi tech P.A. system
Stars in the night sky are obscured from view by stadium lights
Police presence
Metal detector (Strangely they only wanded Brett, even though I had a huge bag. He IS rather thuggish...)
9 uniformed refs
Coaches wear headsets
Bling instead of varsity jackets
Crowd sported designer jeans, purses, iphones, etc.
Multiple concession stands vs snack shack
SEXY cheerleaders and dance team... actually a little uncomfortable to watch!
City traffic whizzing by outside the stadium
Chain link fences

The aforementioned cheerleaders did do the B-E-A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E cheer though, so safe to say that some things do endure. And the home team creamed 'em! Go Grady Knights!
