hot stuff

Sports

 

Two contests last night where I don’t know how the athletes did it. Field hockey and boy soccer battled opponents and the opprossive heat and humidity.

 Soccer ran like crazy but couldn’t get past Berlin. They, I believe, are one of those smaller schools that only hosts one male and one female fall sport – NOT 100 % sure on that one. It certainly seems like an asset to that chosen sport when all of the school’s athletes are funneled into one program. Looked to be a pretty good club, Granville fought hard, like Coach Jordan said the guys will play hard, but they couldn’t bridge the gap.

Somebody drew a card in the first half, not sure who it before I got there, but on a similar play in the second Granville didn’t get the call.

Field hockey ran like mad Wednesday leaving it all on the field and a little splattered here and there. An absolutley heroic effort from the – do they prefer Lady Horde? I’ll have to ask. Players were coming to the side lines, unable to talk and collasping into a pile only to hop back up after a short break. Just incredible the endurance the entire club showed – hats off to coaches Nolan, Palmer and Usher for getting those guys whipped into shape, it paid off in the 3-2 strokes win. 

 It was unreasonably hot. Just standing on the sidelines I was wringing wet and quickly out of bottled water. It seems like September and August got swapped around weather-wise. I’m sure the football team would like to see something a little more seasonable Saturday when they face off with the Stillwater Warriors.

 Stillwater returns some skill players so this will be huge test for the Horde. Good luck to them.

Questions?? of the week variety

 

I’ve been coming up with the questions for question of the week for a few years now and wonder if there is something out there that I haven’t asked that you folks would want to see. It’s a family paper, I’ll throw that out there so if you’re picking up what I’m putting down you’ll know to

keep it clean.

Otherwise, anything goes…

But

and it’s a big one

it has to be a question people would answer

 

And

know something about – so no quantum pysics questions, at least not the hard ones. I haven’t asked a lot of political questions beacuse people tend to shy away from answering those.

Just a though, fire in a question. Maybe next week I’ll put a list of choices out there

Or

if I have enough, let people pick the winner from the submissions…..maybe

 

Just one response thus far from Artice Brisette down at the Pember. her question was about famous or infamous relatives. I like it. If there are more out there, get them in one way or another.

We have a little mailbox out in front or email us something.
