HERE ARE THE STUDENTS AT FT. HAYS STATE UNIVERSITY at a basketball game. They seem to be locked in another time, like maybe 1970. For example, despite current concerns over alcohol abuse on campuses, they have their pep band play "In heaven there is no beer/thats why we drink it here...." etc. Where we were sitting, there were grown women who jumped up to clap along each time it was played, as though it were some sort of Hays official anthem. sad.
Then the students and even some adults spent the whole of two games shredding newspapers and throwing the confetti in the air every time the least thing happened on the court, even a free throw or a time out! weird. The students seemed more concerned with yelling obscenities toward the visiting team and fans than in supporting their own team. Many wore obscene T-shirts to the game.
Apparently the administration of the school offers little or no guidance here.
THIS IS WHAT it looks like taking the main exit into Hays off of I-70 coming from the east.
This is probably exit #159, which would put you on hwy. 183. Most of Hays is to the south of the interstate.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THIS IS. Probably either a church or one of those domes to store sand that the county spreads on roads when its icy.
Recently a Flickr friend emailed me to say that he thinks this might be a museum of natural history. Fossils and the like.
- Pros:THERE ARE SOME PLACES TO EAT THERE
- Cons:A COLLEGE WITH VERY POOR SPORTSMANSHIP
- In a nutshell:I DON'T CARE MUCH FOR IT
BY THE TIME A HAYS BASKETBALL GAME IS OVER THERE WILL BE millions of pieces of newspaper all over the gym. What a mess... more travel advice
