Some thoughts

Good to see the boy soccer team break through for a win. They’ve been on the verge of breaking through for a while.

football

You definitely need to do more than want it bad. Although Granville continues to improve, it just might be that no amount of improvement could have brought them even with Schuylerville. Nothing against this Horde team, they never quit and like Coach Torres wants I think there was plenty of icing going on back in Schuylerville afterwards, but they were a flat out good team.

I have to admit to not knowing much about Mech., I think the last time I saw them play I was on the other side of the football. I like the Horde chances, they challenged Cambridge, but I, like many Horde fans, see that as one game that got away. Could be  a tough one both ways if the projected rain, only 40 percent chance at this point, pans out it’ll come down to running games and I like Granville in that case.

A big start becomes key for the team. Get on the scoreboard early and give up no easy scores which might become a tall order in the wet. I see 22-16 when I look into my crystal ball and Granville gets to 2-2.

 

field hockey

Any fans/parents/players out there? Looking at the ‘Lady Horde’ painted on the field. Do the players like that? Or is it considered sexist or an I reading too much into this? Opinions anyone?

Anywho…the team looked good and were back to thier dominant ways Tues. vs. Schuylerville with a 3-0 shutout. Taryn Little’s 7th to lead area stoppers on only 3 shots – that’s Horde hockey. The team has a funky kind of schedule that was front loaded with non-leaguers and finishes with league matches that will matter. lots of pressure, but that good kind that gets players ready for cool nights on the turf in Saratoga Springs.

 

responses

More and more some people are beginning to respond, that’s good. Someone looks at this thing. I try to keep up with it as much as I can.

Thanks go out to Ardyce Bresette for suggesting this week’s question of the week. I think it’s one I’ll keep going back to. Not much of a suprise that kids aren’t too interested in the ancestry. I think you have to be a little closer to being an ancestor to care about finding out about them. Although I would have to confess to knowing next to nothing about my family tree.

I’ve also had a few weird postings that looked like straight code. If you posted and did not see the reply that might have been it. Several postings all about the same time, identical to each other and appeared to contain links – something fishy.

more later???
