The Sectionals reminded me why Lori and I got into this. We started Prometheus Athletics because we like athleticism and sportsmanship. We also value education, science, free thought and intellectualism in general. So we thought, let’s start a brand that promotes science education, free thought, and fitness. I look around our box today and see molecular biologists, immunologists, microbiologists, astrophysicists, chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, civil engineers, software engineers, lawyers, public defenders (I’ve been enlightened to the difference!), medical professionals, authors and – dear to my heart – MANY students and teachers! The vision is certainly coming true.
But this group of geeks stood out like a sore thumb last weekend! Was it our lack of cleverly misspelled-skull-and-crossboned-pitbulled-demon winged-barbed wired-gothic-fonted-testosterone-infused tshirts? We do have our share of heathens, hedonists and hooligans but we’re definitely not your typical box.
So we proudly flew our flag at the Sectionals and had a number of inquiries on Monday. You want to join our box? You want in? While we’re obviously interested in what you can do (or want to do) during your one hour with us, we’re also interested in what you do during the other 23. Fire-breathing isn’t enough. What are you doing with the rest of your brief spark of consciousness?
