Are You Ready For Some Football!!!!!!
Okay! I know that today is only July 1st, but dang, I'm ready for the season. If you're a football junkie - like me - you know that the CFL (Canadian Football League) kicked off their season last night with the Montreal Alouettes edging the BC Lions 30-26. NFL network is carrying at least two CFL games a week in addition to their Friday night Arena League game.
I know most people (in the US) don't get caught up in CFL games, but there is news a lot closer to home. The "Sporting News" came out yesterday with their pre-season rankings for all 120 BCS teams yesterday and my MSU Bulldogs came in at #20. This is the first time in about 10 years that the dogs have been ranked early and ALL home games for the upcoming season are already sold out. Everyone is hoping this will be a break-out year for the team.
The pre-season polls for high school sports has Starkville High ranked #2 in 5A - and everyone expects that they will be competing for a state title this year. The SHS season starts 7 weeks from today (playing Noxubee County High in Macon, MS - about 35 miles away. I'm thinking I will probably go - Cause I'm definitely ready for some Football!
Everyone have a great day!
