Don't hate on the teams you love to hate

After a long and winding road, we're finally at the end of the football season as the state finals will take place this weekend at Ford Field. Of course, Kosmo can hear the loud noises now because of the teams from Oakland County that are going to be playing this weekend for state titles. Yep, it'll be the four private schools that many love to hate, Catholic Central, Brother Rice, St. Mary's and Country Day. Of course, this will only intensify the cries from many about recruiting and unfair advantages, blah-blah. To that Kosmo, says whatever. One, it's actually harder to go to private schools in this day and age with the way the economy has tanked in the past 5 years. Some parents have to work two jobs just to afford the tuition, and enrollment has pretty much stayed the same or gone down. So the fact that these teams still win is a credit to the players and coaching staffs. Second, it's discrediting the work of these kids. They've busted their tail to become some of the state's best players and lead their teams this far, so give them props. Finally, if you don't like it, them beat them. Plain and simple. Work harder and beat them. Just please don't complain about recruiting or anything else this week. It's a losers lament and Kosmo will just ignore it.
