HHS Football Opening Day

If anyone has video of the Tigers walking out on the field please comment below!

September 11th

Gee whiz, the Tigers play the best opener in football that I can ever remember (and I broadcast 11 of their openers, some of which were really ugly) and nobody is commenting. Whenever they've lost these boards were full of people wanting the coach to be fired :-D

Probably because there is a shift in how people perceive and care about football. It's a dying sport. No sensible parent wants their child playing this barbaric game, coached by overzealous parents that are reliving their "Al Bundy" glory days. Sorry but even fantasy football leagues couldn't save the pros.

LOL @ Mickey.

Lot of truth there, Mickey, but since I'll be covering one more season of it at the high school level, I might as well enjoy it :-D

Mickey -

You sound like a disgruntled Non-Football player who couldn't get the Cheerleaders to date him. Don't be bitter - that was all in the past...

Excellent game by the Tigers. Well played on all fronts. Now lets put another one together like that and build on its success.

"You sound like a disgruntled Non-Football player who couldn't get the Cheerleaders to date him. Don't be bitter - that was all in the past..."

Ugh..I don't think so. And there is no bitterness at all. I'm happy that my body is intact, no surgeries or broken bones. Didn't need a cheerleader either. You are the prime example of the Al Bundy syndrome. Living in the past, the glory days are long gone and all you have to show is an old varsity jacket and the physique of a competitive beer drinker. Now return to yelling at your kid to toughen up, so he can score a cheerleader.

Mickey -

My kids like Football. And Music. And Reading. And Dancing. And other things. I support my kids. It's as simple as that.

I never wrapped my kids in bubble wrap, they could pursue whatever they wanted to do, and always have.

How you twist cheering on the Tigers into Al Bundy, I don't quite understand. If I remember, Al Bundy didn't want any of the young kids to surpass his records.

Personally, I never got an actual Varsity Jacket - they weren't the thing back then. I don't remember "scoring" a cheerleader either. I do still have in my attic somewhere an NHS pin, an Officers Commission, an Honorable Discharge, a few diplomas with a bunch of letters after them, and several paid off mortgages. As for my health and physique, I appreciate your concern. Maybe you go to one of the same fitness clubs I go to daily? Let me know and we can meet up and trade HL stories in person.

Try to keep a positive outlook my friend; I recommend the Desiderata: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desiderata

Great words to live by.

Desiderata is great ... you rock USS Nathan James. Positivity and love are the keys to a happy life, my friend. I know someone (name withheld to protect the guilty) who says sports makes people dumber ... and he hates sports to the point where it keeps his business from being the best it can be ... don't get me started on him.

Football does have issues, so do the music world, politics, you name it --- the world is complicated -- but I'm happy to say football is healthy at the local level and the coaches are good people :-D

Not sure football is fading to the point where no one cares. Still seems to be a topic of conversation, and I haven't seen a roster in high school, college, or the NFL that wasn't filled.

It is comical however, that Coach Robinson gets absolutely torn apart when the team doesn't perform and now that they have a pretty decent opening game "football is fading".

Don't worry Andy, as soon as the Tigers lose a game, all of the head coaches in the stands will have their 2 cents to add.
