“Sounds like somebody has a case of the Moondays…”
— Office Space
If the Dodgers feel like throwing around some money, I have a few directions to offer them to throw in. Magic, call me.
A prominent area coach called me on Sunday night and said that anyone saying Arcadia HC Chris Long doesn’t know what he’s doing, doesn’t know football. He went on to describe the Apaches loss to Rio Hondo Prep as the perfect storm of transition, injury, and an underrated opponent that everyone finally knows about.
Next Add Dodgers: Yes, it was nice that Adrian Gonzalez homered in his first at-bat…But so did Jose Offerman.
Note to Sportswriters/Apologies to Los Altos HC Dale Ziola and Arroyo HC Jim Singiser: Never attempt to record an interview with a new APP on you IPhone that you haven’t become familiar with yourself…I pushed the wrong button before getting back to the office and lost both interviews.
I know Peyton Manning has looked real good in preseason for the Denver Broncos, but don’t you think John Elway should have a better back up plan than Caleb Hannie? I mean ask the Chicago Bears how Hannie worked out after Jay Cutler went down in 2011.
Hannie was so effective Da Bears had to reach down into the high school coaching ranks for a passer.
It is a shame (guilty) that Rio Hondo Prep gets more credit and attention for beating a down Arcadia team than for going 13-1 last year and winning a CIF championship. Time for local media to make amends.
Former M-Town receiver Luke Williams is playing at UC Davis.
They are happy down at Gabrielino these days…feeling good.
Victor Ambruso became the third coach in Mt. View history to win his first game (10-6 over Alhambra) leading the Vikings, and the first since Bill Thompson in 1991. In 1986 Joe Dankert on his first game as HC, and both Thompson and Dankert picked their victories against Pasadena Marshall.
Dyran Adams is now playing receiver for the Duarte Falcons, D-I linebacking prospect Denzel Talifero is running the show now at quarterback.
Last Note Duarte: Talik Mason could be on the verge of a special season.
Last Note Dodgers: If indeed they’re going to spend all this money can they at least start picking up a few wins?
James Loney grounded into a double play in his first at-bat for the Boston Red Sox.
