    Alumni Football

    A little off topic but if anyone wants to watch football in June come out to West Liberty this Saturday at 7:00. It is a West Branch vs. West Liberty Alumni full contact football game. Should be interesting. Next year they are going to work on a IC High vs. West game.

    A couple of years ago, they held a game in Cedar Rapids with Jefferson versus Kennedy. Sounds like Kennedy is going to play another game this year. The company that ran these games travels across the country putting these alumni games on.

    I have seen signs up in different restaurants and places advertising for these games. There are actually several places in Iowa that have teams, their website shows that Albia and Eddyville are playing a game June 23rd.

    Nothing better than a bunch 30 and 40 yr old has-beens and never-weres refusing to give up the dream. I went to the Tipton/NC game last year and it was a riot.

    He did, and I thought that Bohawk was going to be playing in this game for the good side.

    My hometown of Knoxville just had an alumni game against Praire City Monroe. Funny thing is nobody that played college ball played in the game, including me. It costs around $100 bucks to play with some of the money going back to the high school team.

    Or instead of refusing to give it up, maybe they want to play because they love the game? I wasn't worth a darn, but I'd play if my old school had a game. I just loved to play. Ok fine, I loved to practice and watch the game with a very up close and personal view lol

    Sounds like a good way for some old guys to blow out their knees and shoulders for good and be totally worthless around the house.
