Big Ole Hairy Friday

Yes it is once again that time of the week that we all look foreword to, when we can take time to cease the labors for the week and take a little bit of needed time out to enjoy the fruits of those labors. It is once again the dawn of another weekend and a Big Ole Hairy Friday.

Do you believe it, the kids are back in school for the time being and we are going to have some High School Football in Monongalia County finally!! The Morgantown Mohigans are at home and play 3-1 Musselman tonight at Pony Lewis Field. This is the first game this season for the Mohigans. The University High Hawks are also home this evening hosting Albert Gallatin (PA) which really has me wondering why Mon County Schools don't play them more often since they are so close and just across the state line. Clay Battelle also starts their season on the road at Calhoun County. Trinity also starts their season tonight when they travel to Madonna. Good luck to all four Monongalia County teams this evening, you finally are getting the chance to play this year. 

It was 47 years ago today that I had the worst injury I have ever had in my life. One that required surgery to put a pin in my leg for traction, a 4 week hospital stay, then 6 weeks in a body cast and then 2 more weeks in the hospital in traction again (this time without the pin) then a couple more weeks in a straight leg cast. It was a greentree fracture to my left femur that sidelined me for months. I was able to play baseball that next spring, but that was a bad break from a pickup football game with college students in the mud. 

This evenings plans I guess all depend on Hayley. If they are stopping by we will be making spicy sausage rigatoni if they are not we'll probably just order from somewhere and bring it home or try going out to eat. 

Have a great day and Go Mohigans
