If you’re an internet perusing Park Cities resident, perhaps you’ve already seen Milwaukee Journal Sentinel columnist Mike Hunt’s little ditty about his trip to Highland Park High School’s indoor practice facility, if not, you’ll probably find this little nugget interesting:
“Highland Park would be the Beverly Hills of Dallas,” said Packers No. 3 quarterback Graham Harrell, who went to high school in a nice-enough Dallas suburb, just not Highland Park.
Actually, Highland Park High School is located in adjoining University Park, not far from oh-so chic SMU. At a nearby coffee shop just before the Packers arrived, a man complimented a woman on her fashion sense. With her fur-looking coat, she was wearing sandals in 20-degree weather.
“You have to have a good chauffer to pull this off,” she told him.
OK. Highland Park is the “Beverly Hills of Dallas”? Really? Also, the quote from the fur-ensconced woman in sandals seems a little off. I found this part interesting, too:
Heisman Trophy winner Doak Walker and Bobby Layne, both of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, played at Highland Park. So did current Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, whose donations partially went to the on-campus indoor facility the Packers borrowed.
“Hopefully, Mr. Stafford donated enough to the high school,” Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said.
Oh, he did.
