Penny Lovers

I'm having trouble writing this blog, because I'm still laughing about this. I'm in the Metroplex for the NASCAR weekend and heard one of the funniest high school prank stories.

Last week a pair of District 5-5A football powerhouses, Southlake Carroll and Colleyville Heritage, played at Southlake. There is $3 charge for parking at Dragon Stadium and for a week and for the days prior to the game, the P.A. announcer at Colleyville made students aware of the fee and added "pennies are as good as cash."

So, the Colleyville peeps showed up and paid for EVERYTHING -- parking, tickets, food and so on -- with pennies. That's classic.

Can you imagine the poor people taking the money? HAHAHA. Do you count it? Probably not.

Sooo ... this week, as the Grapevine-Southlake game approached, Southlake officials called Grapevine to tell the school pennies would not be accepted for tonight's game.
