Affluence Apartheid in America

And now for a few choice words concerning my recent demotion to the status of second-class citizen. The amazing thing is how quickly my metamorphosis into Cockroachlandia occurred.

Games are not won or lost on one play. If you don't believe that, just ask Green Bay fans!

Making it even tougher on the Cardinals was that they had the fire power to have won the tournament, if they had been able to be at full strength. Gone from the lineup was one of their main cogs in senior Chance Boor at 195 lbs. Chance a state placer last year has been a ...
