Bill Hall: If Only We Had Found ‘Glee’

don't know which I enjoyed more during my public school years, getting pounded into the dirt without a helmet during football practice or singing off key with one of the most hideously incompetent glee clubs in American history. But if I had my druthers, I would rather sit in the safety of my living room watching NFL players pound each other into the dirt or listening to those uber-talented 28-year-old teenagers on the hit television show "Glee." "Glee," bless its tuneful heart, is more than a television show full of Broadway-style musical numbers: it has inspired a liberating show-choir movement in public schools across the land. The kids in those choirs not only sing, but they have been freed to dance and romp and wear wild costumes while feeling a beat running from their cola-fired hearts to their pizza-stuffed souls/Bill Hall, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Were you part of a Glee club or school choir during your teen years?
