Grape Pickers

I am the newest fan of North East High School in Pennsylvania. Why? Because their mascot is the Grape Pickers. How unbelievable is that? They even have gear. I was lucky enough to receive a rally towel that says "Picker Pride".

And to think my high school mascot was the Warriors. Lame.

I know all about the Grape Pickers because The North East High School Athletic Boosters had a fund raiser at JR's Last Laugh Comedy Club in Erie, PA tonight. They also had a raffle where one of the prizes was... a case of DASANI bottled water! What? I guess that beats another one of the prizes: a 12-pack of Welch's Grape Juice.

It was at this point that I thought maybe they are taking this Grape Picker thing a little too far.
