The Edgar Wildcat football team will play for a state title today at Camp Randall in Madison. No surprise there...Edgar has won 5 state titles before but this team has the smell of legend. When the 2009 Wildcats take the field today against Eau Claire Regis they will try and put an exclamation point on an undefeated season where they have outscored their opponents 605-13. That's 605-13!!!!??!!?? They will also be carrying the banner of small public schools against the onslaught of private schools which seem to dominate state tournaments in the smaller divisions of all high school sports in Wisconsin. Recruiting for sports purposes is not supposed to happen but anyone can see it does. But Edgar doesnt care about any of that today...the players and coaches are forging a legacy...and whether it's right or not, it won't be math or science class these students will remember in 20 or 30 years....it will be the 4 months they spent with their teammates preparing for this moment. To players, parents and coaches..enjoy it..it goes too fast.
The Bucks and Badgers took care of business last night. Milwaukee avoided losing to the 0-11 New Jersey Nets to run their record to 6-3. How good is Brandon Jennings? He has scored more points in his first 9 games in the league than any player is league history.more from espn.com You read that right...amazing. Wisconsin beat Oakland University in a tune-up for the Maui Invitational. The Badgers play Arizona on Monday.
Songs of the Day
Dancing In The Dark-Bruce Springsteen (1984) After loving the previous Springsteen LPs I eagerly awaited his next release but was disappointed in this synth filled dance tune. It became a hit and I grudgingly came to tolerate it but never really warmed up to the "Born in the USA" Lp. Of Course the video is known for launching the career of Courtney Cox.
Dancing in The Street-Martha Reeves & Vandellas (1964) this song epitomizes the Motown Sound and became so universally beloved it's been protected in the National Recording Registry. A huge international hit as well.
