where was I?

Sports stuff

 

Tough loss for the girls soccer team, 10-0 to Ravena the 2-seed Class B, Ouch.

I give them credit for taking the shot, but shows theres still a long way for the Granville Futbol programs to go – Keep plugging folks, believe it or not it will be nice to look back and say ‘I kept this program going’ when they hoist a banner some time in the future.

As a Corinth alum from back in the day when getting rid of the football team seemed like a good cost-cutting measure, I have to admit to some pride at the fact that our really bad(3 wins in as many years of football) kept the sport alive at the school.

Call me – what? An optimist, I guess because I think losing at sports builds at least as much character any winning streak. That said I’d had loved to build a little less character back in school.

 Field hockey.

Granville waits as Lake George puts up big numbers on Coxsakie-Athens (pardon the spelling on that one, sure it’s wrong). The fourth seed is coming in with some momentum so the Horde need to watch out after a LONG layoff without playing a meaningful game.

The Horde came to a rolling boil about this time last year and will need to be able to jump right into it Saturday to keep the train rolling. I still like thier chances, but I’m not much for predicting…

 

Oh yeah,

In response to a poster, I don’t read many, if any, other blogs. Whoops, take that back. I look at the sports blogs of the writers over at the Post Star often. They’re looking big picture so I use them to keep up to date on movings around the rest of the league in the non-Granville events.

Other than those, nothing. I’ve looked at blogs from a lot of sources, but don’t go back. Usually they’re a lot of "insider basball" to coin a phrase and I think ANYONE can post one, so you’ve often got to wonder what they really know – this one included. You’ll see journaism in the paper and – what? scraps, I guess, here.
