2023 Week 12 (Texas)
This week wasn’t supposed to be in Texas. At the start of the year, I had figured I’d be making the trip to Iowa as I had made for several years not including 2020 when I went to South Dakota instead.
But, I had decided I wouldn’t be making the trip about two weeks ago for work. Which was unfortunate because there was also two games in New York I’d have liked to do. Both CSP and Salamanca were at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park for the Section 6 Finals. Continue reading “2023 Week 12 (Texas)”
2023 Week 11 (Pennsylvania & New York)
I wasn’t supposed to be home this weekend. In fact, I had not even considered what games I might do. Which led me to some usual places instead. For Friday, I figured I’d head to one of the WPIAL playoff games near home, but not particularly interested me. Continue reading “2023 Week 11 (Pennsylvania & New York)”
2023 Week 10 (Tri-State)
Week 10 started on a somber note. And I hadn’t really planned to do anything on Tuesday. However, there was a rare game scheduled in West Virginia. And with everything going on, I just wanted to get away.
So, on Tuesday afternoon, I headed east on US422 to I-79. And took that through Washington toward Waynesburg. Passing by West Greene High School on my way along the southern reaches of PA18 into the Mountaineer State. Continue reading “2023 Week 10 (Tri-State)”
2023 Week 9 (Ohio & Pennsylvania)
With everything going on, I hadn’t really planned what games, if any, to do this weekend. Friday made the most sense. Since my daughter would be at it. Thursday wasn’t a concern. So, Friday evening I was at home in Ohio and made my way over to Stambaugh Stadium. Continue reading “2023 Week 9 (Ohio & Pennsylvania)”
2023 Week 8 (North Dakota)
This recap will be a bit briefer than most. Primarily because of some personal tragedy in my life. And though I’m not sure how many do read these recaps of mine, I’ve let them get a bit further behind. For Week 8, I was in North Dakota and managed to see four games over the weekend. Continue reading “2023 Week 8 (North Dakota)”
2023 Week 7 (Colorado)
After the last two weeks in Nebraska and Kansas, I moved west. For Week seven was three games in Colorado. For Thursday, there wasn’t many options, and one that I regret not taking advantage of given the outcome. However, the string of towns along I-70 from Seibert to Burlington have been on my mind for a while.
Continue reading “2023 Week 7 (Colorado)”
2023 Week 6 (Nebraska & Kansas)
Week 6 was looking to be a great weekend. I had the plans for anywhere from 3 to 5 games. But, I had settled on three. And then two, and then four, before passing Saturday night with just three games in Nebraska and Kansas. Continue reading “2023 Week 6 (Nebraska & Kansas)”
2023 Week 5 (Nebraska)
So after being in Wyoming for nearly a week, it was time to leave. The only issue was where to see games that weekend. There were Friday games in Wyoming. But ony one full Thursday game. Far from Laramie. So, I looked next door to Nebraska to see what was available. And there were a lot. Continue reading “2023 Week 5 (Nebraska)”
2023 Week 4 (Ohio & Illinois)
Week 4 was a hectic week. I was supposed to be in Wyoming. But, kept getting delayed leaving. So, I looked about my original schedule, and figured I’d see a game in Ohio. And one on the way. Saturday, too, if possible. Figuring maybe Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. As Saturday options in Iowa or Missouri weren’t exactly plentiful. Continue reading “2023 Week 4 (Ohio & Illinois)”
2023 Week 3 (Tri-State)
Week 2 melted into Week 3. With my sister home, plans changed for the following weekend. Primarily, I was going to be taking her back to the airport Saturday afternoon. The only real option for Saturday afternoon had been the Kennedy Catholic game. Continue reading “2023 Week 3 (Tri-State)”
