    I think more coaches should do this or at least not even hand them out.

    One thing for sure, losing is not part of the culture of New Canaan Football, as the varsity plays today in the 6th straight state championship.

    Really? Anonymous sources in the New Canaan Advertiser? National Security issues? Pharmaceutical whistle-blowers? Toxic Dumping?

    You only cover us when the coaches melt the consolation trophies.

    Second place gets you choked out.

    I'm probably stating the obvious here, but...

    1. Don't hand out consolation trophies.
    2. If you do get consolation trophies, don't burn them.
    3. If you do burn them, in a place like a public park, at least have the decency to clean up your mess.
