Anyone know of a sports bar where the game will be televised? I don't have a tv but I want to watch the game!
Call around. Even places like Round Table Pizza in Midtown often have sports on. Otherwise try the Boardwalk on El Camino just beyond the new Whole Foods. Old Pro Pizza is also another good try.
Anybody know what happened?
Paly lost - 42-28...but played well. An early fumble and great comeback in the 4th quarter, 2 touchdowns, but ran out of time to keep the momentum going. They looked terrific though and should be very proud of themselves playing against a private school that recruits players!
This was an exciting game - glad we watched it though I know little about football - watch it if it's re-broadcast on channel 40.
I watched the game and your right. PA played great and should be proud
of their entire season, but why do you have to "slam" the other team by saying that they recruit their players. Can't we be proud of both teams and their players.
Not a "slam" - just the truth. If you've ever played against a private school who recruits, you'd know that it's a whole different league, an advantage if you will. To lose by only two touchdowns is a huge accomplishment.
I went to the games, and ahppened to sit next to a local SoCal high school football coach. He was very knowlegable and friendly. Two main points I garned from him:
1. Orange Lutheran, not Oak Chrisitian is considered, by the coaching community, to be the best team in SoCal.
2. Recruiting goes on everywhere in SoCal, including the public schools. In the public schools, boundries are not a big issue, since any kid can go where he wants to go, but if it is beyond his normal school boundry, there must be space for him. The big football programs always make the space.
