    The Register is a little behind

    Apparently grinding is just now reaching "fad" status.
    I missed out on grinding in HS by a couple years. Joe's Knighthawk in Waverly was way ahead of the times though if grinding is just now becoming popular

    I bet it feels all right to the kids, though.

    I have visions of chaperoning many a middle school dance. Ugh.

    LOL...has the Knighthawk ever been on the front side of a fad?? My wife's grandmother lives like 2 blocks from there and it looks like something straigt out of the 70's.

    Re: The Register is a little behind

    If I were a student whose "grinding" was taken away I'd stick it to the school and just tell them we will do the same thing, at home, without clothes.

    What a dumb thing to get upset about.

    Used to be the place to go as a Wartburg student. Closest thing to an on campus bar you'll find anywhere. Didn't even have to cross a street to get there.

    WE LANDED ON THE MOON!!


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: The Register is a little behind

    Last year my high school made announcements saying they weren't going to allow grinding at Homecoming, and if caught you would be kicked out. They had no chance of stopping hundreds of kids haha it was an epic fail on the administrations part.

    Re: The Register is a little behind

    2 Questions: Would you rather have the kids grinding at the school?
    Would you rather not have your kids at the school and off doing who knows what/who knows where?

    Re: The Register is a little behind

    I saw this article too. This was going on when I was in high school in the mid to late 90's. They are just now seeing it?

    Unless your daughter is a crotch-grinding slut, I don't see a problem.
