LETTER: Outraged that sporting event will be played on Good Friday

Posted

I thought long and hard before I wrote this and then realized it was a no brainer for me.

I am outraged that there is an athletic event being played on Good Friday, April 15, this year.  

Schools have always had Good Fridays off even when not on a school break, and if you know me all my children and grandchildren played a spring sport.  

And honestly, if my child (Vernon-Verona-Sherrill) was playing baseball against Oneida or any other team on a Good Friday, they would not even be there on the bench, they would not be there at all. I am surprised any schools, teams etc. are playing on Good Friday. I am disappointed that some one would even schedule playing any athletic event or any event on a Good Friday! I have no say in my grandchild, but never my child on a Good Friday!
