Checking in during a busy weekend...
From the Pressbox:Friday's halftime went well at Rittman Stadium. The new song in the routine this week was the Ramones' "Blitzkreig Bop". Next Friday is an away game for the football team, which means that I have the evening off. Next Saturday, we travel to northwest Ohio for the Anthony Wayne Band Festival.
About the Rittman Football Team:The Rittman team dropped to a 1-3 record after a 47-21 loss to Hillsdale this past Friday night. Rittman is basically fielding a junior varsity team after a playoff season last year. Because there was uncertainty during the off season(levy issues), there was a complete turnover in the coaching staff, and two of the remaining starters from last season transferred to another school.
The Hillsdale team is having what looks to be like a good season in the early going. They normally have one of the weaker teams in the Wayne County Athletic League, so maybe they can go ahead and make their school proud this season.
WIXY Jr. Goes to College:Saturday, my wife , in-laws, and I took my son Adam, aka WIXY jr. to Hocking College in Nelsonville. Mother and son are doing fine. Lord willing, I will go back in three weeks to take needed things down, bring unneeded things back, and probably deliver a care package. Adam's come a long way since September 11, 2001, when on that day when everybody else was watching the news, we were watching our son go from one seizure to another to another. He has had to work hard to get to where he has gotten. Yes, I am a proud father!
Lastly:Apologies to my oldest daughter, who's comment I deleted last night, thinking they were from someone else.
