Not being flippant, but what if we don't, as a community (or
individually) value youth sports?  I didn't value sports as a teen,
nor as a pre-teen, and I don't value them now.  If we are going to
spend lots of money on something that huge numbers of teens enjoy, why
not a gigantic youth center with dozens of Dance Dance Revolution
machines (arguably as athletic as football, etc.), and an inexpensive
salad bar so that our kids can eat healthily?
