In January, Freedom Elementary School in Cheyenne prohibited tag at recess because it "progresses easily into slapping and hitting and pushing instead of just touching," Principal Cindy Farwell says.
Well, I guess so. Maybe if the schools would get with it and supply protective padding for the kids that want to play tag. Perhaps Everlast could come up with a variation on its sparring gear for boxing and adapt it for grade school games of tag. We wouldn't want the kids to get skinned knees or anything, or suffer the trauma of actually being tagged and shouted at derisively: "You're it!" Oh, the humanity!
