Gallaudet football

part of tweet

it says:
America’s Only Deaf Football Team

it refers to Gallaudet and this tweet is wrong
because there are other deaf football teams
– these deaf school football teams.

Yes, many of these deaf school graduates
enroll at Gallaudet and continue their
football careers.

random deafsports talk

A basketball coach, that only sends in scores from
“time to time” said that his school’s won/lost
record is incorrect.

DeafDigest Sports editor told the coach that he
needs to email in the scores after each game
and not “from time to time”
