What I remember about McMinnville is that their high school had the worst AAA sports teams I've ever seen. They had the football team that went 0-9 every year and the basketball team that went maybe 2-20. My senior year, they actually decided to forfeit the varsity wresting season and just wrestle JV. Our JV team beat them something like 45-6.

I later learned it's wine country. Had no idea about that stuff as a transplanted high school kid in the 80s.

None. I'm not sure why I brought that up. Just an interesting thing I learned.

Don't worry. The cops are addressing the important crime here:

FTA:The beer thrower was cited for criminal mischief and ordered to appear in court.

In other news, my town has been extra shooty this summer:

Having lived two years of my life there in the mid 00's, I'm shocked no meth was mentioned.
