--- Not having been a basketball fan (until now), I was unaware of the tradition that follows winning a high school championship. Each member of the team climbs a ladder that has been placed below the basket (the one with which the game was won), scissors in hand. A piece of rope is retained by each member and the remains of the net are bestowed on a coach or outstanding team member. ----- At the Philadelphia City Championship game last Friday night. The best team from the Catholic League battled the best team from the Public League and won in a hard-fought "nail-biter" of a game! ----- The boy wearing the rope necklace is a Senior who will be off to college in the Fall. ------ Uploaded on 3/4/2013 6:18:36 AM
