That we’re the only country that socializes school sports is never going to change. But we can avoid absurd spending. The rogue CIAC just doesn’t care, though.
I have announced high school basketball games for years. Rarely, almost never, have I noticed teams holding the ball and draining the time clock. However, the CIAC, which answers to no one, has decided to bring a 35-second shot clock into Connecticut next year. That means for every game, schools will have to pay about $50 for someone to assume this needless duty, a six-figure cost that the CIAC does not care that you and I will absorb.
