Don’t miss today’s soccer notes and cross country notes. Don’t forget to make your predictions on Friday football games and possibly win a T-shirt. And if you want to read a replay of our Live Chat on Wednesday, you cand do that, too.

I got a fascinating e-mail today from Fathead, you know, that sports company that sells huge helmets that go on your wall? Well, they’re doing it for high school football teams now. I cruised through it and didn’t find any Kansas schools.

But it got me thinking — so this is where high school sports is going? We’ve already seen the change with the number of high school football games showcased on ESPN. Are high school sports the next great plan for companies to make money? I think so. And that’s kind of sad.
