Speaking of high school football, does the Flint Metro Conference really deserve the urban street cred that comes with the name Flint? Yes, Metro is short for metropolitan, which has come to include a city along with the surrounding burgs and burbs in urban planning lingo, but who are we kidding here? Does anyone seriously claim that places like Linden, Holly, Oxford, Fenton, Lapeer, and some strange place called Brandon really deserve to be associated with the Vehicle City? (Does Brandon really exist or is it a fictitious locale included to make the conference look bigger?)
My suggestion: The conference should get a new name or start paying Flint some royalties.
