If you’ve been checking our Sports section here at The Bulldog, you will see a large blue clock counting down the days, hours, minuets, and seconds until Bullis’s Friday night homecoming football game against Bishop McNamara. The game promises to be a marquis matchup between two top DC area teams. So, if you’re on the fence about attending, here are the top 5 reasons to go to the game!
Scholastic athletic events are one of the few times where it is socially acceptable to act like a complete goof around your teachers and peers. Stand up and “jump around” during C block, and I guarantee you will get a comportment form. However, if you try it right before the 4th quarter, it will warrant at least a couple hives from that special someone you’re trying to impress.
2) Enjoy some high quality “Kinder Dogs” at the family cookout.
If five dollars for all you can eat barbeque doesn’t do it for you, how does free food sound? Yes, that’s right, getting some great grub before the game will cost you not one cent this Friday. If that’s not enough for you, I’m told there will be a rock-climbing wall as well.
3) You probably look good in black.
If you’re not already aware, the theme for Friday’s game is a blackout. You can take this time to show off your craziest black outfit, and most likely get some good mobile uploads for Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram in the process.
4) Who doesn’t love singing the Alma Matter?
You can’t tell me you don’t get that warm tingly feeling inside as the masses in the “Dog Pound” begin to belt out those unforgettable first notes of Bullis School’s most famous song. Furthermore, if basketball coach and math teacher Bruce Kelly’s fist pump during the “Hail the blue and gold” part of the song doesn’t get you pumped, I don’t know what does. If you stick around long enough, you’re in for thirty wonderful seconds of musical genius.
5) Support your friends and the Bullis community
Danny Copeland (’13) says, “It really helps to know I’ve got the support of all my friends, family, and teachers. It gets me going when I see them all watching in the crowd.” The Bullis community thrives off of support from peers in athletics, the arts, and academics. So come out and support your friends!
