It’s been pretty quiet this week in the Little Village, where all the men are football fans, all the women keep score and all the children wear football jerseys from September through October.

But there’s trouble in River City; the transition from summer into fall has hit a serious snag.

Word is, the high school football season was at risk of not being played.

The school’s student-athletes are on strike. Collectively, they plan on boycotting all the sports until the school drops the team name of Bluebirds. They’re testing the water with their refusal to participate in football; they refuse to represent the school and town and themselves as the Bluebirds.

The crisis came to light when the cheerleading adviser came screaming into the teachers’ lounge at the school: “I don’t have any girls signing up for the cheerleading team.”
