Were they expected to be amused and applaud? The boys' response was not what those who provoked it expected. Instead of anger and violence, an outburst of youthful energy and school spirit erupted. At one point, it looked like there was a duel between the drummer and the cheerleaders. Each side tried to outperform the other.
What a credit these kids were to their school, their families and themselves! If they had simply walked away, they would have come off looking like Kentucky fried chickens.
