Where ya headed Week 1???

Post by GoBirdsGo II » Sun Aug 19, 2018 1:41 pm

Few games have peaked my interest.

#1 .. Athens @ Williamsville (The Sangamo Conf. is one of the best Football conferences in the state)

#2 .. Elmhurst (IC Catholic) vs. Belleville (Althoff Catholic) at Illinois Wesleylan University

#3 .. Downs (Tri-Valley) at Decatur (St. Teresa)

#4 .. Lisle (Benet Academy) vs. Burbank (St. Laurence) at Northern Illinois University


What to do, what to do???????? :scratch :scratch :scratch

#2 Looks like a winner. I'll be at RHS hopping for a non running clock. If so probably end up at Peoria Stadium. Weather looks good for Friday.

Clearly??? If it is, why am I still sooooooooo unsure where I'm headed. 1 & 2 are in the lead though.

PND/Normal West intriguing me as well.

If you do decide to head to Williamsville, you might wanna try and get there early. Athens usually travels pretty well and the game is gonna air on TV locally here in the Springfield area so parking may be at a premium.

Barring a rainout I will be at NCHS-Richwoods
I favor capital punishment. But there are alot of cases where I don't think capital punishment applies (parking violations) and cases where it should be applied (murder, child molestation, illegal HS football recruiting).- BirdWatcher

Personally, my favorite games to play in were the rainy, snowy ones. But as a fan, yeah I am not looking forward to sitting in the rain!
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you've got to have is faith and discipline when you're not yet a winner.

Cutter752-Depending on how NCHS/RHS goes, I may be at the Stadium as well.

I have no problem with rain...I have a problem with people arriving late and then opening umbrellas in front of me obstructing my view.

I have a problem with the people that come late trying to figure out where to squeeze in while the games going. And the kids that keep going in and out of the bleachers or stand on the steps blocking the game view

Back when Metamora had their “old” home bleachers and they were filled most nights it was always a treat to see people walking up the center set of stairs at 7:28p, come all the way to the top, then have a confused look as to why they could not find a seat.

Upper 60s last year, but no wind. Only other opener in the 60s since 2004 was 2009, mid-60s with light wind. Considering it's 67 now and it's going to be pretty breezy tonight, this will be the chilliest opener in at least 15 years.

I'll be heading to Oak Forest for Pekin game - about 45 minute drive for me. This might be the only Pekin game I will be able to attend this year....
