How the mighty have fallen

The PHS football team accomplished a mighty task yesterday, beating the local area powerhouse Westlake Chapperalls two years in a row in the first round of the playoffs. It was a very exciting game with no lead large enough. A short summary of the game can be found here and you can listen to a replay of the game here. Pville is playing A & M Consolidated next week, a team they've had problems with in the past. However, they looked much sharper and crisper this week compared to the bad outing last Friday. If they play just as well next week, they will have a very good chance of winning.

There was a dedication of the Fallen Warrior Memorial yesterday down at Pfluger Park, Veteran's Day. It's in the central part of the park, right on the hike and bike trail. They did a very nice job with the memorial, I encourage you to look thru the site and remember what brave souls our fighting men and women truely are. Definitely read the speech made at the Ground breaking.

The bike ride was similar to last weekend's, with a pretty strong breeze from the south. I rode a bit further, thru a subdivsion about 1/2 way thru the ride. It probably added another 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile to the ride. It's summer type weather again, with highs up in the 80s, it was in the 70s this morning during the ride, and quite humid. I did dig out my helmut to wear, you can't be too safe. Most of the ride is on the h & b trails, but some is on the roads. Early in the morning, the traffic is quite light, and almost all the roads I ride on are side roads, with minimal traffic.
