Edit: Moscow Right To Decide To Play

In a Moscow-Pullman Daily News editorial, Lee Rozen applauds Moscow High's decision to play Coeur d'Alene High in a football game Friday: "As a parent, it's impossible not to be sympathetic. The Bears don't have a lot of extra players. If they hope to do well in postseason play, they'll need to keep their players healthy. Why not just forfeit this meaningless game? We salute the Moscow officials who made the decision announced yesterday to play the game. This is not a decision about football. It's a decision about education. Every one of us has faced or will face insurmountable, unfair, even overwhelming obstacles in our lives. There was or will be no opportunity to call a forfeit if we intend to keep on living. We'll be required to play through whatever pain or embarrassment is involved. We may be left with scars. Our children need to learn some of these lessons." Full editorial here.

Question: Is it possible that Moscow High will do way better than they think against the Viks? Anyone recall how the saga of David & Goliath turned out?
