By writing this a day early, I realize I’m in danger of causing a Kramer-Newman dispute as seen in “Seinfeld.”
Like Kramer, you’ll be asking, “What is today?”
Your friend (Newman) will answer, “It’s Thursday.”
Ah, but it doesn’t feel like a Thursday, does it?
In the episode, Kramer said he thought it was a Tuesday. Newman chirps back that Tuesday has no feel.
My readers, my friends, I’m sorry for the confusion.
I know this column has a Friday feel, but with three games on the docket tonight, a special edition was necessary.
After all, I don’t really have a “work feel” as I’m trying to relax in the Smoky Mountains this week.
But, here we go anyway …
Fairview 60, Paintsville 14: This won’t be pretty.
West Carter 22, Fleming County 21: Comets shock the Panthers as Fleming County QB Desmond McAdams serves the second of his two-game suspension.
Johnson Central 55, Greenup County 8: While the Musketeers played Rowan County much closer than most expected, Johnson Central is coming off a huge win. Letdown? Don’t think so.
Ashland 27, Belfry 20: Another big game for Ashland. Another big win.
East Carter 31, Lewis County 21: Raiders gained some confidence by earning first win (a rivalry one, at that) in two seasons. They keep riding high with a second victory of the district variety in two weeks.
Ironton 28, Bishop Watterson 21: Fighting Tigers return to Tanks and come out on top in a hard-fought battle.
Lawrence County 44, Pike County Central 28: Offensively, the Bulldogs won’t have any problems. Beating Sheldon Clark was just what the doctor ordered for the defense. Yes, I realize they gave up 33 points. But they did enough to win, and they will again.
Raceland 40, Nicholas County 18: Idle week didn’t cool off Rams, who start off district play on right foot.
Rowan County 34, Boyd County 27: I’m not forgetting Greenup County, but loser may just have a future date at Fort Thomas Highlands. Now, that’s what I call a reason to play hard.
