Why would a Jr. High school sports teams be called the '39ers?
LOL, I love it! The school is named after Jack Benny, the most famous person ever to come out of Waukegan. One of Jack's ongoing bits was that he always claimed to be 39 years old, no matter how much older he obviously was. Hence the team nickname '39ers' at a school named after him. Sheer brilliance! :laugh:
I agree, and brilliant for a middle school! It keeps things fun!
Could the school have been established in 1939? Just a guess, most likely wrong, from a non-American!
And I guess they have a very TIGHT budget, too. :laugh:
