Bill Y - (the groggy) Franklin Guy
Bill Y w/ Lee Ackerson - a great Franklin Guy - at the Pats/KC Sunday Night Game.
I know coming from a Boston sports fan, this will seem like a bunch of whining. With all of our success over the past two decades, it is hard for anyone to feel sorry for us. But today I want to represent the whole East Coast. If you are a Baltimore Fan, Pittsburgh, Miami, Philly, Buffalo, and yes a Yankee Fan - we all suffer the same fate for rooting for the home team.
I call it The East Coast Penalty. The professional sports leagues and their television network minions start games so damn late - in an effort to appeal to the West Coast. Now, I can see if a game is being played in the West, it should start at a "normal time" for them. Let their fans at least get out of work. And though it may seem like I'm hating on the West Coast, I'm not. It is just the luck of how the Earth rotates that we get up three hours before them.
(OK this originally went out around 5pm Sunday. So it's a little past midnight - before I hit the sack I had to change the headline from Let's Go... to Way To Go!) What a great win last night! That is why we love sports - they are a metaphor for life. We all know what it feels like to be knocked down, and counted out. The only thing we can do is buckle down, try harder, and persevere.
Not to sound like an old fart - some of what I'm going to mention was w-a-y before my time - but some of our younger Franklin Girls and Guys have only known winning with the Red Sox and Patriots; with a little success thrown in for the Celtics and Bruins too.
Franklin Gear congratulates the Franklin High Golden Tornadoes Football Team on their 42-7 win! Despite 3 early turnovers, they adjusted and overcame. Their relentless nature will take them far - both on and off the field. Way to show off Franklin's pride and strength of character!
