    Nike is on to something great! They're investing $650k in grants in youth sports. I encourage you to check out NikeBackYourBlock.com to learn more or enter your organization to win.

    Back Your Block is a site Nike launched to accept grant applications for up to $5000 in cash and Nike products to help support organizations and schools with programs in sports, education, advocacy and/or mentoring.

    This is a great program, and I ask that if you agree please spread awareness about the campaign and get additional groups involved.

    There are two ways to share the message about NikeBackYourBlock.com. You can encourage youth-focused organizations in your community to apply, OR you can support current applicants by sharing the site with your friends and family and challenging them to vote.

    Collaboration with people like you will help spread the word about this program and help get organizations the support they deserve.

    I don't think poin is going to participate.

    Well no, there are no high school teachers involved.

    OK, look. I'm going to say this, and I don't care who I piss off. This typecasting of poin as only posting about HS teachers is a sham, and it's stupid and it's weak and it's pathetic.

    It's ANY administrative person. Principals don't get off the hook, nor do middle school teachers.

    Have some respect.

    I have a couple of trees in my backyard that could function as goal posts.

    The application for my grant is in the mail.

    Mustang regrets the error.

    Thanks for having my back.

    But its not any administrative person. Its female teachers/admin only. The male teaching profession could be having a mass orgy in the school gym locker and I don't care.
