The National Highland Games League
Not a corruption of the venerable Games, mind you. Rather a graduation to the level of professional sports entertainment
encompassing all the elements thereof: team franchises,
televised Games-of-the-week, impact players, superstar salaries, merchandising and the rest.
I'm ready for it. America's
ready for it. Give it to us.
What it involves.

||The Sean Triubhas would be particularly entertaining. Have a scone.
||"Off, damnable trousers!"
||PeterSealy Reverence don't feed the bulldog, buddy.
No, believe me, I wouldn't want to see the Games trivialized either. But I sure would like to see a bit of that great wash of pro-sports megacash make its way into the pockets of some hardscrabble gut-level competitors.
||[PeterSealy]: Highland Games are much more than just ceilidh.
||They're not really, other than being of Gaelic origin. Dancing is included in the Games, but not the community dancing featured in ceilidh.
