Welcome sports fans to a brand new season of watching young men beat the snot out each other, and we have football!
Yes, it is the beginning of another year of high school football.
All kidding aside, I am glad it is football season because it means that the fans are coming.
I know a lot of people get worked up for their team of choice every year and I do not have a problem with that. In fact, I wish more people could come out and support the local teams, but that is not the point of this particular column.
I recently had a chance to catch up with a friend of mine who is “not from around these parts” as some would say, and as I explained that I am covering high school sports for a community newspaper, my friend said something that made a lot of sense.
Local high school fans are obsessed.
