A lot of moving parts

This isn't the best picture in the world but I am posting it because of something I heard someone say. I heard someone ask why there is so much attention paid to high school football. The easy answer is because football is a great sport and prep players in Texas are arguably the best in the country. The long answer, at least for me, is that high school football is not just about the football players and the game. Its about the band, cheerleaders, Tigerettes, body guards and equipment managers. It can also be a source of community pride and school spirit.

This Friday night is Senior night when the Terrell Tigers play host to the Lancaster Tigers. On the line will be a spot in the playoffs. Game time is 7:30. I would guess the pregame honoring the seniors will start around 7.



I ended up 8-5 picking the NFL games for week 8. My season record is 76-40.
My fantasy football team finally won another game, evening my record at 4-4.
