Ice Breaker – High School Football Game

Each week on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

(I’m always looking for Ice Breaker question ideas.  If you have an idea, send me an email at  If I use your question, I’ll give you credit and share your links.)

This week’s Ice Breaker is inspired by this season of high school sports.  My daughter runs cross-country, and my son marches in the marching band.  This means we are at most of the football games.  Tonight, we’ll be heading across town to see our school match up against another school.  Our son will be playing the pregame show, and then we’ll sit back and watch the game.  It’s also a great opportunity to catch up with other parents.

Question:  When you were in high school where were you likely to be during the football game?

My Answer:  I marched in the marching band, so I was likely to be in the stands watching the game and playing the fight songs.  I was (and still am) a big sports fan, so I loved being at the games.  My sophomore year, our football team won the state championship which meant I played in a few extra games.
