Watching the game

Original post made on Dec 7, 2007

Sometimes a story is a series of observations that can allow a reader to share in the experience.

The reporter - who has no allegiance to either side and enjoys covering events at all the schools - attended the game to take part in the excitement, observe it, and report on it.

Now if the played Rugby, it would be a different story!

Smile,

Hal
