Cut Corners on the New Gym

8> The floor is linoleum with a simulated woodgrain design.

7> There are two backboard-shaped holes in your English teacher’s
dry erase board.

6> The basketball goal is actually a deep-frying basket on loan
from the cafeteria.

5> Before every game, the janitor has to set up the bleachers…
by taping together 500 chairs with duct tape.

4> Instead of springing for a rock-climbing wall, they just
left the construction scaffolding up.

3> The tent pole at the free throw line is a tip-off.

2> You have to be in the first three rows to read the Lite-Brite
“scoreboard.”
