Our town has a new tradition of meeting our winning sports teams at the edge of town with an escort of sirens wailing and lights flashing. We live on the main road into Southampton. The first time it happened was this time last year when our Girls Varsity Basketball became County Champs in the small school division. At about 10pm, we heard all the commotion and didn't know what to make of it. (We can't see the road from out house.)
We found out the Lady Mariners were escorted from the edge of town to the high school by both the police and fire departments. We now are alerted in advance of any escort so we can park at the edge of the driveway and flash the lights and sound the horn for our local heros.
Last night The girls played their final game before heading for the New York State Championship game.
Sitting there, I made this photo of the dashboard. It's a good feeling to cheer them on and cause a little ruckus in their honor.
