Email from the kids' school

Dear Parents,

We have a wonderful opportunity on Monday for Field Day.  People from the Indianapolis Colts organization will be coming out, as you have heard in communication from Mr. S******.  We are hearing rumors that students think it would be funny and are planning to wear New Orleans Saints gear.  Your child certainly does not have to wear Colts gear, but we believe wearing Saints gear would be in poor taste and would ask that you discourage your child from doing so.  Each child is representing ******* Elementary School and we would like the Colts players to leave here feeling positive about their experience.  Wearing Saints gear does not seem like a positive way to build a relationship with the Colts organization who has graciously agreed to donate their time to our school.

Sincerely-
******* *****, Vice Principal

Hmm, I don't see the Colts storming out in a huff because the kids are fans of other teams.

This is really funny. But you know, at least the area has something to be super united about!

It would kind of make me want to go out and invest in a bunch of Saints paraphernalia ...

So what are your kids going to wear?

They're concerned about the Colts players leaving having a positive experience? Isn't the whole point for the kids to have a positive experience?
