Cal High To Destroy De La Salle (or not).

My alma mater, Cal High, is playing De La Salle tonight for the NCS 4A championship.

I don’t think people realize what a big deal this is, as Cal High football used to be to bad what the Olsen Twins are to creepy. We had cheerleaders who were tougher than our football team. Of course, I always quit after a week of practice, so I can’t say much. I loved playing football, but wasn’t much into grown men with whistles yelling at me. Or running. That was the big problem – all that running stuff. In fact, as much as I liked playing sports, I liked resting a whole lot better.

I also liked gambling better than running. Which is why I put money on tonight’s game. Because I believe in my Grizzilies. That and I found someone willing to give me 32 points. I still think De La Salle will win – they’re much better at recruiting. But I’m confident the Grizzilies will cover. They’d better. I bet my kid’s college fund on them. Lucky for me I only have ten bucks in there as of now.

    Wow, this never gets old. I’m pretty sure the Grizzlies will cover, they’re a run offense right?

    I assume you’re saying De La Salle doesn’t recruit. They may not now. They don’t have to. Now that their rep is firmly established, they attract all the best players with no effort. But that wasn’t always the case.

    Amen, Tony. They don’t have to recruit anymore, but there have been some names on that team over the years, that I don’t believe were given at their Catholic Baptism. Though there is one former member of that squad that has made it to third string QB of the Patriots. So, he never lost in High School and now in his first year in the NFL, his team is undefeated. Hmmmm…

    “De La Salle streaked out to a 30-0 lead before halftime and ultimately cruised to a 37-0 win over the Grizzlies to win its 16th straight NCS title.”

    So should you have held out for 40 points? I don’t get the whole point spread thing.
