100-0

Stop me if you’ve heard this. Or, move on to the next post, ‘cuz I’m going to recount it anyway. It’s about the Christian school in Dallas, Texas, that wiped out the perennial losers by making sure everybody knew they were the best. Or:
Jesus 100, and Dallas Academy 0.

Ok, Dallas Academy hasn’t won a game in several years. Not a single game; they are mostly in it to play, as it’s a very small school and the students are learning-disabled. They know it and it’s part of life on the court.

Covenant School is a Jesus factory with a high-powered team. Should the two even be in the same league? Beats me, but it also beats me how you can’t put in the third-string, maybe a janitor or two, run up the score to a decent, winning level and let it go at that.

Our Lord’s coaches cheered from the sidelines as His students neared the 100-point mark. Or, maybe His students were still at the zero point, while someone else’s was nearing the 100-point mark. Whatever, it was a massive, all-out, beat-you-to-a-pulp trouncing.

“The Covenant School regrets the incident of January 13. It is shameful and clearly does not reflect a Christ-like and honorable approach to competition. The school in no way supports or condones the running up of a score against any team in any sport for any reason. The Covenant School is submitting a formal request to forfeit the game recognizing that a victory without honor is a great loss.” (Web site.)
