A Little H.S. Foosballz
A friend of mine has a son playing for Eufaula and they had their Spring game last night against defending State Champs, Central of Feenicks City.  He sent me a pic of Eufaula kind of huddled around their coach before the game started.  Looked like about 60-70 players.  His text said, "I think Central has 150."  Anyway, the last score he sent me was 43-36 Central.  I know it's a Spring game and who knows what kind of rules they were playing under, but my buddy was encouraged about at least being competitive.  GH could speak to this because I have no idea, but I would imagine Central is breaking in a shoot load of new players after last year. 

He didn't say, but I think they might have played at Troy's stadium.  I know a lot of teams are having their Spring games played there.  Very smart on Troy's part since that could be great for recruiting.

So, tomorrow night is the Spring game for Dothan High.  Why is that significant?  2 reasons.  First, the two 6A schools here, Northview and Dothan, are combining starting this upcoming school year.  They are going under the name of Dothan High School and the mascot will be the Wolves.  Second, they convinced Hoover to come down and be the Spring game opponent.  You guys know from my posts in the past that after you get above 2A and 3A in this area, we have pretty much been the definition of shootty football.  I don't expect much more initially, but I heard an interview with new coach, Smitty Grider, and he seems to get it.  Grider was the first coach at Park Crossing in Montgomery and he all but said, the facilities down here suck and that has to be a priority.  Hell, Eufaula has an indoor practice facility.  The main stadium down here is okay for the most part, but the locker rooms are so small and dilapidated, that teams won't even go in them. 

He at least seems to get that the overall culture down here regarding football has got to change.  Should be interesting.  
You guys ever thought about the fact that the guy who coined the term, "coined the term", coined the term?

That's all well and good but how were the showers afterwards?
"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shootty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Which location will be the new combined school?
Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.
