My middle school had letterman's jackets. They were not earned in the same way that their high school equivalents usually are, but rather through a complex and semi-secret accumulation of points (for participation in sports and other extracurricular activities, leadership roles, and academics, and so forth) and those who were chosen to wear the black and red jackets became a somewhat elite group (as elite as a group can be in a middle school with about 150 students over three grades) known as the Jacketeers. You know, kind of like the Mouseketeers of the Mickey Mouse Club (by which I mean the club of Annette Funicello and Tommy Sands - mmm, Tommy Sands...*Homer Simpson-esque drooling* - as opposed to Britney Spears/Christina Aguilera/Justin Timberlake/Ryan Gosling/Keri Russell. Yes, all five of them were in the new version). I was just imagining how a different style of Jacketeers might look, Adonis Complex-style. I'm quite pleased with it, as it turns out.

And look, Michael Radon (above)!
