I recently read that an elementary school principal in McLean has banned the game of tag from the playground of the Northern Virginia school.
Citing the "intense aggression" of the game, Robyn Hooker informed parents that students at Kent Gardens Elementary would no longer be allowed to play the ageless classic.
When parents expressed their disappointment at the ruling, Hooker sniffed, "I did not know that tag was so sacred."
I'm with the parents on this one. Only "sacred" might be too tame of a word when it comes to tag.
