Sometimes you gotta go with the classics. Not only has the YMCA been around since men were wearing those funny full-bodied bathing suits, but it’s been encouraging that whole mind-body-spirit thing all this time, too. The Y promotes respect and friendship as much as the spirit of competition, and we think that’s just plain sportsmanly of them – and sportswomanly, too, because though it was started by some idealistic young male Christians, it now comprises idealists of all creeds, colors, genders, and so forth. So, everybody huddle up and repeat after us: Why does everybody like the YMCA? Because it’s where all the kids get to play.
