Behind The Scoreboard
Hopefully, season won’t be wasted
The Mobile (AL) newspaper, the Press-Register, runs on its sports pages the number of days left before football begins. Just football. There is no distinction between the different levels. Just football. It is a very subtle way to feed the eagerness which is gnawing at the insides of all who have made the gridiron sport America’s number one pastime. For the great majority of us, our attention will be devoted to the secondary and tertiary levels, however, and as usual, we will be avidly watching from afar what the “big boys” are doing.
