Marty mourns the luckless Hawgs and worries about Aaron Rodgers
Marty is fuming. He doesn’t mind losing the tight ones – well he does, but it’s a cigar-chewing fest filled with caffeine and blood when the Redskins lose like they did last week.
No offense, very little defense and it looks like we’re right back to where we were last year.
Adrian Peterson stomped all over the Arizona Cardinals last week but couldn’t do anything against Andrew Luck and the Colts. Frustrated the High n’ Mighty so much, he coughed up a day-old Jimmie Cone.
This week the Packers come cruising into town and they only reason why they aren’t undefeated is because the NFL referees can’t tell a legitimate tackle when they see one.
What can the ‘Skins do against Aaron Rodgers? Clay Matthews? Devante Adams?
Peterson is well known to the Packers so the big basso profundo is thinking he’d better buy a few more cigars to chew through. Meanwhile Marty went 13-4 last week and is looking forward to this week:
Quince Orchard 34
This is how Marty likes his football. Two great teams. Two great coaches. Two great fan bases. One public school and one private. One big winner. Marty’s going with the home crowd in a nailbiter in his Game of The Week.
Magruder comes to Damascus and they’ll have better luck getting a good Jimmie Cone than they will getting any positive yardage on the field.
A running clock in the second half with the local middle school team getting playing time too.
Rumor has it the plow boys will be bringing down the Kubota tractors to help, but it won’t be any help since the farmers won’t be at home.
Marty knows Wootton is having a tough year, but that is nothing compared to the tough decade the boys in orange have faced at Rockville.
How and the heck to you expect anyone to pick the “Big Orange” against the “Patriots” in Red, White and Blue?
The Coyotes are still howling after their defeat last at the hands of their rival Quince Orchard. Never fear, Springbrook gave up howling seasons ago and will just take the loss this week.
Winston Churchill was for real. Walt Whitman was for real. Unfortunately for Whitman High School, only one of those famous people has a namesake high school that is for real.
Marty has a soft spot for both of these high schools who often look like a good ankle-biter team in the Capitol Beltway youth league could make a meal out of them. This week they’ll have to gnaw on each other.
These two storied high school programs have played in numerous memorable games with thrills, chills and spills.
This won’t be one of them.
Walter Johnson 35
Now Marty knows good and Marty knows bad. Walter Johnson has been so bad for so long, with occasional glimpses of mediocrity that he did a spit-take after W.J. dissolved Springbrook last week and popped 50 points on the board. W.J. has seen some running clocks, but usually is at the receiving end. They delivered it last week and will follow up this week against a depleted Kennedy squad.
Paint Branch 45
The High and Mighty knows daggone well it is way too early in the season for Paint Branch to get jumped, collapse and fall into a snowflake rubble of tears and missed opportunities.
Paint Branch chokes at the end of the season. Not against Blair. Not Now.
Watkins Mill 28
Seneca Valley 17
How the mighty have fallen. Time was when the mere mention of Seneca Valley coming to visit you brought about nightmares of the boogie man coming to steal your breath in the middle of the night.
Today it garners a chuckle and a note from an assistant coach you’ve got an easy week on the schedule.
Sherwood is coming off a great win last week after many great seasons. Richard Montgomery is suffering of delusions of grandeur due to the fact their season is named after one of the finest coaches in the county’s history. Reality will intrude. See ya’ Rockets.
This is Marty’s last week giving Wheaton a smidgen of hope for the coming season. If they defeat Einstein they might break even this year. A loss dooms them once again to mediocrity’s wasteland outside of suburbia.
Good Counsel 35
Bishop Sullivan 21
Yeah, sure Sullivan landed a flight on the Hudson River. This ain’t him and the Falcons, who got their wings clipped last week will be looking for blood. Sullivan will definitely end up bleeding.
Woodberry Forest 7
No truth to the rumor that Beavis and Butthead named the school “Woodberries.” They may have had something to do with the “Forest” crack though.
