“Now and then when I see her face She takes me away to that special place And if I’d stare too long I’d probably break down and cry.”
— Guns N’ Roses
Oh, I have always loved fantasy football…
Thirteen hundred miles later I can say two things…I am so sick of McDonalds and I love D-2 college football.
What at great atmosphere up at Humboldt State. I can recommend the place, if not the pizza. When you have Monrovia Pizza Company, Lampost, and Rio’s…the pizza up in the Redwood Jungle doesn’t quite come up to home in my opinion.
I would like to thank the Lord for 54 degree weather up there. Marvelous…and then to have it tied to football…pure blessing.
Azusa Pacific opens up at home this Saturday night…
The difference between El Monte football through the ages and El Monte football now? The Lions believe they can win the close game…more importantly they believe they can win even after something disastrous happens.
Temple City is 0-3 for the third consecutive season…It is winless in its first three games for the fourth consecutive season. (In Anthony White’s lone season the Rams started 0-2-1)
The last time Temple City won, one of its first three games? September 12, 2008 when Morgan Hatch completed 10 of 14 passes for four touchdowns in the Rams 34-0 victory over Arroyo. (In the same game Steven Rivera made his debut for the Knights when Austin McFarland went out with a busted forearm).
TC has been shutout three consecutive games for the first time since 1956 when they fell to Arroyo (6-0), Bell Gardens (31-0), and Upland (6-0). They have been shutout three times in the same season for the first time since 1958.
On the flip side of Temple City losing to 23-0 to Alhambra…Is the Moors getting their first victory of the season, and first under new HC Joe Kanach. Good for them.
Even at the high school level, the pressure a coach and his staff put on themselves is like an anvil on the shoulders. With so much press these days, and websites that remind people continually about what happened the week before it must feel like a pair of anvils on the shoulder.
Personally, I can’t imagine why someone would draft the Chicago Bears Jay Cutler for their fantasy football team and then not start him.
Did you know Dwight Howard is now with the Lakers? O-Bop Shu-Bam! That’s great news…But all the news ain’t good there’s a rumor Joe Blanton is a Dodger.
On this night in 2001 Denver Broncos wide receiver Ed McCaffrey broke his league against the New York Giants in the season opener in front of a national audience. The next morning, the whole world watched terrorists bring down the World Trade Center buildings, and hit the Pentagon.
