I was trying to remember the last time I rooted for a team in purple. . . Wasn't the Lakers. I've always hated the Lakers. Maybe the Minnesota Vikings back when I was a kid? At least until they played Green Bay. I rooted for Green Bay because they had Bart Starr at Quarterback. I thought that was a cool name. Also, I had gotten a kid's sized Green Bay Packer's football uniform (complete with helmet) for Christmas one year. That was great. My brother got a New York Giants uniform. We immediately put them on and went out in the back yard and ran our heads together. Then we read the warning. . . "not to be used for actual contact". Ooops. . .
Wait, where was I? Oh yea, purple. . . the Pioneer Field Hockey team was forced to resort to purple pennies as their opponent not only had the same colors, but the exact same style of uniform as well. I think the other team was doing everything they could to throw the Pioneers off their game, but it didn't work, and the Pioneers racked up a 3 - 2 victory. Julia M. had two goals to lead the Pioneers.
