To Be a Highschooler Again...

Last night I was shopping at one of my favorite grocery stores, Byerly's, when I saw a group of young guys fully decked out in lacrosse gear walk by my aisle. I mean full-on gear: pads, sticks, jerseys, helmets--the works. I stared open mouthed in confusion, and then a few seconds later a guy with a video camera followed. Ahhhh -- high schoolers.

The moment was a mix of two movie scenes for me: 1. the scene from Garden State, where Zach Braff's character wakes up on the couch after a night of partying to see a medieval knight walking around the kitchen; and 2. the scene from Strange Brew where the McKenzie brothers are walking around the brewery in futuristic-looking hockey uniforms.

I guess you just had to be there.
