Changing customs in suburbia

When I was young, kids teepeed the houses of kids they didn't like. I was horrified to find this tradition rampant in my new neighborhood -- until my children told me that it wasn't done to the houses of unpopular kids. No, the custom now is to teepee the houses of athletic teammates before a big game. I happen to know that the girl in this house is on the varsity field hockey team. Go Huskies!
