I'll bring home the turkey if you bring home the bacon


Well, Van Heperi gets to play in the first assembly of the new school year, being two weeks from yesterday.

Since the theme for this year is "Revolution", we were asked to play "Revolution" by The Beatles. Fun!

Set list: 1. Any song we want as people are walking in
2. Revolution-The Beatles
3. PHS Fight Song

Stupid Bloody Tuesday

My tittle is reference to the fact that Tuesday was the hardest practice day. In all, it was 9 1/2 hours of football rolled into one day.
Also there's the fact that it comes from "I Am the Walrus".

Let me tell you, there has never been a worse ordeal created than a high school football team. 12 practices over a 5 day period is no good for chaffing. I finally realized that having 275 lbs. guys run at you all day does seem like an odd way of having fun. When I really think about it, it's not the best way to have fun. I need my worst enemies across from me to get really agressive. And none of this "pads" and "helmets" stuff. Just a rope and a knife, last one breathing wins. A much more entertaining and satisfying proposition.

Rob would be pleased to know that I only heard Warner swear twice, and both cases were at his lineman, so that's okay.
