So yeah, I just don’t understand flag corps. But what I reeeeeeeally don’t understand is a flag corps taking the field and having one of its flaggers unable to flag. It happened this Saturday at Nippert Field. My brain melted. Check out the girl on the 42 yard line. What you can’t see is that her arm is in a giant cast.
Yet she’s out there.
What universe does this make sense? She has one job and one job only- wave a flag. Seems like you don’t take field if you can’t do your one and only job. Right? If the trumpet player’s lips fell off, surely he wouldn’t still go out there and march around. And it seems silly to even point out that injured football players don’t still go on the field and play.
Am I the only one who finds this insane? If so, someone help me understand.
