    Default Miller Place

    Just to let you know, if any of you ever played Badminton on Long Island in high school you've heard of a High School Varsity team that never lost a match since 1973. Last year they won their 500th straigt match in the county championship.

    Well I play for their best competition in recent years Smithtown High School and yeseterday we ended their run. Their current record is 504-1, and that 1 is us.

    I know it's not a big deal to most people but it was the longest streak in team sports history, recorded in the Guiness Book and now it's over.

    That's just a little badminton milestone that maybe some of you will find interesting.
