Preparing for the Stinky Sneaker rivalry game

It’s almost time for a victor to be declared in Tuesday’s Stinky Sneaker rivalry game between Central Valley and University High School.

This year’s theme: Shoempa Loompa, which is a play on the mythical people from the book Charlie and Chocolate Factory.

Because the theme must be tied to the coveted trophy, a sneaker, thus the Shoempa Loompa, according to students presenting at Monday’s Central Valley School District board meeting.

You’ll recognize the Central Valley H.S. fans by their blue t-shirts and the cheer leaders who are reportedly dressing up as Shoempa Loompas.

The girls’ basketball game begins at 5 p.m. at their Spokane Arena and the boys’ team begins at 7:15 p.m. For pricing information, check here.

Interesting to note: music will be provided at the game by members of the Central Valley marching band and once the game is over, some of their instruments will be packed away for a nearly 2,500 mile long drive to Washington D.C. where they’ll be picked up once again for a parade that happens only once a year.

In Thursday’s paper, look for a story on the marching band’s last weekend of practices leading up to their flight to Washington D.C. for the President Obama’s inauguration day parade.
