But no need to fear, high school football is here to the rescue! Tonight we will be going to see Abilene High play a team the Plant Panthers from Tampa. Mostly I just wanted to go because it’s going to be on ESPN… SURELY if ESPN is taking the time out of their busy schedules to show our little football game, it will be a good one. When the game was scheduled, Abilene High was ranked #1 in the nation and Plant was ranked #2.
Too bad Plant ended up losing their first game and fell to number 40-something. Then Abilene lost their second game and fell to number 20-something. I haaaattte football polls, but I’m used to this sort of disappointment. I am, after all, a Red Raider fan. At least ESPN was nice enough to keep us on their schedule. They certainly don’t do these sort of favors for Tech games.
I haven’t been to a high school football game in a few years, but I’m hoping it will feel exactly like being a member of the cast on Friday Night Lights.
Ignoring the fact that I will be a peon in the stands, of course.
