The Alabama High School Athletic Association has denied a team’s request to schedule a nationally televised football game on a Sunday, citing “Sunday is a day of worship”:
“Sunday is a day of worship,” AHSAA executive director Dan Washburn said when citing the reason for denying Hoover’s application to play an out-of-state opponent.(AP)
I wonder if anybody pointed out to Dan Washburn that Saturday is a day of worship as well. Oh yeah, and Friday is a day of worship, but I don’t expect the AHSAA to move high school football to Wednesday’s because Friday is a day of prayer for Muslims.
Heck, everyday is a day of worship for some people. Let’s cancel high school football in Alabama altogether if the AHSAA is so concerned about allowing people to worship.
