High School Basketball Stars May Have Served You McNuggets

The McDonald's All-American High School basketball games goes off tomorrow on the UM campus. The Washington Post has been posting blog dispatches from Maryland's National Christian Academy stand out Dante Taylor. He has been having all sorts of fun in Miami. He's swam with dolphins, noted the algae on the backs of manatees, gone to church, and done some volunteering. After the whole, ego-tripping Bryce Brown fiasco, it gives us a little reassurance that highly scouted, athletic kids are actually alright.

Taylor and his All-American teammates have also been, um, actually working at a McDonald's* apparently. So if you noticed any future NBA superstars serving your double Big Mac, do not be alarmed. Though, we recommend that if you want your child to be a future NBA or WNBA superstar you keep him or her away from the Happy Meals.

*It is really, rather sad I can tell which McDonalds that is just by the small pictures accompanying the original blog post. The one on McDonald and US1, right?
