Only a pandemic could keep my me & my dad from attending our 42nd consecutive home opener. Can we get a little love for our commitment @astros ? #NotAtMMP #Astros #HomeOpener pic.twitter.com/cRsU3QxHOi— Michael McDonough (@m_squaredBHS) July 25, 2020
According to his twitter profile our guy Michael is the Bellaire High School principal, so, obviously attendance is a big deal to him. Guy lives and breathes attendance, it’s his job after all. To have his perfect attendance streak be put in jeopardy over a pandemic has to be brutal for him. But as they say — when life gives you oranges, make Minute Maid Orange Juice.
