>>> if you have kids in sports or you were one you know the post game ritual that sounds like this. good game, good game, good game. the nhl still does it. it wouldn't hurt the nfl or major league baseball to try it. it is supposed to be nice. the problem is kids will be kids. there is the old spit in your hand trick and worse. now the kentucky high school athletic association is saying because fights have broken out after hotly contested games, the traditional player line-up after these games should be monitored or, in some cases, stopped.
