Got a big one coming.
So let's start things off looking at the Super Six that will be played on Wheeling Island Stadium.
It kicks off tonight with the Double A State Championship between Keyser and Wayne. The last time keyser was in the Double A championship game was 1969 they beat Winfield 21-20. Whereas Waynes last championship game was last year and they beat Point Pleasant. Wayne has been there done that. Listening to the scores provided by Metronews on "High School Game Night" sounded as though Wayne tore it up this season. So my heart says the Golden Tornado but my head says. "THAT NOBODY CIRCLES THE WAGONS LIKE THE WAYNE PIONEERS!"
Now onto the Triple A Championship between Martinsburg and Cabell Midland. Martinsburg is looking to be the first school in Triple A since 1968-1970. That was Charleston that did that . I have not seen Martinsburg but from what I have heard and read they are a very good team. Sounds like the Steel Curtain where you can not run on them you can pass but there maybe someone lurking in the woods for a pickoff. And I did not even mention the offense. Again from what I have been told and read this is the quickest Martinsburg offense there has been. We will find out Saturday. This is Cabell Midlands first appearance in the State Championship game. Many have this listed as a Regan/Mondale landslide but that is why they play. And I am sure head coach Dave Walker knows this.
Onto Signle A I really do not know either team so I wil say the Blue Dons from Weirton (Madonna) defeat the White Eagles from Wahama.
Onto a little College Football. Saturday the West Virginia Mountaineers will take on the Kansas Jayhawks. But that is not really the story of the weekend. The Mountaineers have been projected to be in the Pinstripe Bowl to take on Syracuse. BUT NOW Pitt has come into that mix.If the Pitt Panthers can beat that of the USF Bulls on Saturday then Pitt will be at 6-6 and bowl eligible. Now I get Syracuse is very attractive for the Pinstripe Bowl as it is in New York. But to me I think Pitt/WVU does HUGE business both at the ticket office and tv. And lets be real ratings is all ESPN really cares about. So lets see how that plays out shall we?
No West Virginia basketball until next Wednesday as they go to Chrleston to take on Marshall.
Marshall takes on UNC Wilmington before that game on Wednesday. .
Sunday the Steelers play the Ravens and I can HONESTLY say. For the first time in my life I have zero interest in a Steelers game. With Ben I think the stelers have a very good chance at winning some ball games MAYBE MAYBE since the NFL is way down lead the Steelers to a Super Bowl. Without? Well my being disinterested tells the story.
Mondays game between the Redskins and the Giants looks to be the best game in my eyes this weekend. If the Redskins are too in fact win that game on Monday they have a good shot at going to the playoffs. PLAYOFFS?! Yes I said playoffs. And maybe a shot at the NFC East. May sound crazy but look up there remaining schedule and it really is not.
So folks get through today and its the Weekend! Enjoy it the weather looks great for December!
