I blogged earlier about College Football starting on Saturday.  Well, Saturday is also the Arena Bowl (AFL Championship).  The San Jose Sabre Cats will face the Jacksonville Sharks in Arena Bowl XXVIII in Las Vegas.  The Cats have an AFL best 17-1 record while the Sharks fought their way through the season after a 1-5 start and then outplayed their playoff opponents on the road.  Since my youngest son is currently stationed (USCG) in Jacksonville, I will be pulling for the Sharks on Saturday night.  Two games of football on Saturday.  I can't wait. 
Everyone have a geat day.

Shake it off and Move on

Its taken me a couple of days to do just that.  SHS lost a heartbreaker in double overtime to Noxubee County High.  Hats off to them though.  Just shows why they are the #1 ranked team in 4A (in Mississippi).  Doesn't get any easier here at home next week as SHS plays the #1 5A team (Oxford High) in the  3rd "Little Egg Bowl" (Currently 1-1).  This game will also be carried nationally on ESPNU.  I'll be there in person and TiVoing it at home.  HEY - I might be on TV!
The first college game on TV will be on Saturday, August 29th, at 3:30 (Eastern) as the three time (back to back to back) defending (FCS) National Champions, North Dakota State Bison, play the Montana Grizzlies on ESPN.  Gotta Watch!
I am going to try and start doing more entries.   I promise.  At least once a week if not more.
Everyone have a great day!
