  • Sometimes, that’s the way it goes

    Sometimes, an offensive lineman gets beat so badly by a defensive player that he has no choice but to commit a holding penalty in order to avoid a possible disastrous situation.
    Now wait, a holding penalty is disastrous, you say! Your team is pushed back 10 yards, and now your team has to gain 10 more yards on top of the yards already needing to be gained. Yards are already hard enough to come by, and now it became a little harder.

  • Woods and Waters: Be ready for deer season Nov 12-27

    I know this is a week early, but you might need the extra time to change your plans. As you know, Oct. 31 is Halloween. And, it’s customary to dress up. Now you can dress up as a pirate, or cowboy, or maybe even an action figure. But, no matter how strong the urge, don’t dress up as a clown! This year, clowns aren’t one of the “in” things to be dressed as. Besides, you could be harmed.
