Bozos of Blitz # 9
I love high school football. Growing up in west Texas it was a part of our lives. I don't get out to see much of it these days but I still pay attention to it. I did get a chance to watch my old neighbors son, Kevin Kapke, play for Chatfield a few times.
Recently, Channel 4 moved Marcia Neville into a part-time slot at the station because they are downplaying their high school coverage. It's a move that quite honestly baffles me. High school sports are woven into the fabric of this great state and are a key part of the entire community. Why Channel 4 would cut their coverage of it is just beyond me. But don't get me started about TV sports coverage in Denver. Channel 2 is the only one giving sports the time it deserves.
Overall, I miss getting the chance to watch High school football on a regular basis. Our Preps editor here at the News, Gerry Valario, mentioned to me earlier in the week about Limon going for the state record. I just couldn't imagine how I could get a cartoon out of it. That's what is fun about doing Bozos of Blitz. It gives me a vehicle to do some different things like nickname contests and Limon footrball. Anyway, I'll be pulling for the Badgers on Saturday. Thanks for the inspiration guys.
Feel free to share some of your memories of high school football. I'd love to hear stories form the Glory Days.
