” crew.) Louisville, being the proud academic institution that it is (oh, wait - isn’t Bobby Petrino their football coach?
) will no doubt offer to return the money they took from Papa John’s for the naming rights to the stadium.
The story was about a kid who’d suffered three of them since eighth grade, and had finally decided that that was enough.
Now, according to the story, he “got proactive about his health and well-being.” He decided to turn down a scholarship to play football at NAIA Montana Tech. Now, I was pretty pissed at the idea that with maybe 70 kids, each with stories of their own, they had to go negative.
*********** In World Cup Soccer, they call it the Third-Place Match.
In Suomen Amerikkalaisen Jalkapallo (Finnish American Football) they call it the Bronze Medal Game. From 1960-1969, a time before playoffs, when the NFL championship was played by the champions of the two divisions, the second place teams met for the supposed third place in what was originally called the Playoff Bowl.
(Those who've already ordered it and have been waiting can tell you how long it's taken me to put it together.) My intent is to show how I build the offense with "blocks" - teaching the linemen just 8 "Building Blocks." Each building block enables your backs to run dozens of plays.
I appreciate all the hard work, it's well written and as always well done with great illustrations. MB, Illinois *********** Received the dvd today and as usual you did not disappoint. (That’s a soccer tournament that takes place every four years, see, and in most nations in the world, including all the sh—hole countries, it’s a very big deal.) The French celebrated the win, of course - perhaps even overdoing it slightly, to the point where the gendarmes (French for PO-lice) had to step in and show a bit of force. All the while, French fans urged them to “open it up! “Three yards and a cloud of dust,” does not translate into French.
But this year, nothing until Friday, when they chose to write a large article about one kid for whom the Freedom Bowl would be his last game.
(With a large photo, of course, accompanying the story.) His last game? Sure as hell, true to the standards of today’s journalism, the topic of that lone pre-game story, was concussions.
Its news is politically slanted (and to the left, it goes without saying); at least half of its front sports page typically consists of photographs - usually one large one - no doubt because it saves them from having to pay writers; the writers they do pay seem to have slept through the part of journalism school where they taught about sentence structure; and they are severely lacking in judgement when it comes to what to write about. This past Saturday night, the annual “Freedom Bowl Classic,” a local all-star football game featuring the graduates of our county’s 17 high schools, took place.
But you’d never have known it if you depended for your news on the Columbian - which, unfortunately, most people in the county do.
