At a recent high school basketball game against city rival Maret, the Sidwell supporters chanted “O-ba-ma! O-ba-ma! O-ba-ma!” This taunting referred to the fact that both Malia and Sasha Obama will be attending Sidwell next year. The Obama's runner-up school? Maret.
As reported by the Washington City Paper, Maret supporters were not amused by the chants, which were "insulting and incendiary” according to one parent. I suppose, though it can only hurt as much as one lets it. Perhaps it’s better to have a sense of humor about being excluded?
Anyway, what I liked was the Maret rooting section’s response to the Quakers' incendiary chanting of the President-Elect's surname:
Sidwell won the game. Some people get everything.
