Unless you are a big USC fan, you might not know anything about the Trojans. Not the prophylactic. The other Trojans. The high school sports team. In LNDtH, I named the high school Triton and the team the Trojans.
The truth is that there is a Triton High School with the team mascot Trojans, but they are about fifty miles away from Mishawaka. It was just too good a name to pass up. So imagine my surprise when I walked into a Kroger's grocery store this week and saw a rack of Trojans team sportswear. Sweats. Pretty cool and I thought about getting a new pair of sweatpants, but they were all too small. Turns out that Hot Springs High School happens to also be the home of the Trojans.
I guess I could call the high school anything I wanted to and Trojans would still be an appropriate mascot! Maybe I should have set the story here in Hot Springs, AR.
