Marty looks to the Hawgs but misses Captain Kirk Cousins
Lightning strikes can’t stop Friday Night football.
The lights are bright, the action is hot and Mighty Marty knows how to roll.
Marty got off to a great start last week, 12-5 and missed a couple of cues.
He’s gonna chalk it up to his stogie and the large Jimmie Cone he got that started melting in the late summer heat.
Meanwhile Marty wants to know what his Hawgs are up to and while he likes Alex, he’s still fuming over the way the ‘Skins treated Captain Kirk Cousins.
He wishes Cousins the best up in Minnesota and wants to say we’ll see him in the NFC championship, but the Old Sound and Fury doesn’t think the ‘Skins have any better hope going to the NFC finals than President Trump has a chance of winning the “Tweet of the Year” Award.
Anyway, let’s get on with it.
This week Marty is looking forward to the best early-season game he’s see in a long time. Unfortunately he has to go to Sandy Spring to see it. And Marty don’t like leaving Damascus
Young Michael O’Neil looks good leading Pat Cilento’s bunch. And this team is loaded for bear.
The bear this week is Sherwood and this team is no slack for talent either.
This is the best game of the week in public school and if you want to see two teams battling it out with everything on the line – come on down!
But Marty ain’t backing a dead horse. Damascus will come, see and conquer.
Watkins Mill 21
Last year Magruder couldn’t find the endzone with written instructions – the players probably couldn’t read. This year they’ll find the endzone, learn to read and find out they lost.
Paint Branch 42
Richard Montgomery has been much improved over the last few years, since the days they couldn’t fill Roy Lester stadium by paying attendees like they’re going to a political rally.
But never fear, this would be a good game, but it’s early in the season before Paint Branch traditionally chokes. They won’t choke this week either.
Seneca Valley 38
Absolutely no truth to the rumor Gaithersburg plans to unleash a swarm of honey bees on the field to get a win.
And in this corner one mediocre team, and in this other corner another mediocre team.
In the stands – snores.
Flip a coin. This game will be exciting only because both teams are so daggone bad.
Quince Orchard 42
I’ve made up my mind. I dont’ care what the facts are. Oops, sorry, Mary was sucking in his stogie and for a minute thought he was applying for the Supreme Court.
Keep the protesters out of his head. This week Q.O. rolls!
Churchill is climbing a ladder. Wootton is just trying to field a team. Both are good solid programs with quality coaching. However, Wootton will be no match for Churchill’s depth.
The Urbana team looks like a herd of bison as they take the field. The Coyotes, well they look like coyotoes. Hence the problem.
The old basso profundo has to admit it. He likes Einstein. He doesn’t know why. Hell he likes Whitman. Marty likes underdogs. Here’s a battle of two of them and Marty’s picking the math nerds over the english nerds. Sorry.
Walter Johnson 3
There will be nothing close in this game. And parking will free up early in the second half.
Rumor has it Wheaton will fiesta para siempre with this week’s win over Northwood.
Marty admits it. He has a soft spot in his heart for the farmer boys from Poolesville. They may be children of the corn – but they’re MoCo children of the corn.
Avalon hasn’t been the same since Crazy Legs Tad Shields quit coaching there. This team may turn out some D1 talent, but it always seems to have more talent than wins.
Maybe they need Crazy Legs Shields back on board.
St. Mary’s 7
The Monsters of the MoCo Midway are the bears of Landon. Does a bear take a nap in the woods? Not on St. Mary’s.
G. Prep 35
This li’l ole Catholic School Boy love this matchup and this year the team with a field between two buildings travels to the Li’l Hoyas home field where they will fight and without government oversight deliver a win with some fright.
Good Counsel 35
It’s a proposal to be considered and without any constitutional context there’s no way MSJ comes to the Falcons’ home field and plucks their feathers.
Fork Union 10
It would be a high crime and misdemeanor worthy of being impeached if anyone thinks Fork Union can demonstrate that F.U. will stick with Bullis.
Put a fork in Fork Union.
