With politics now in full bloom I looked back and found a post from two years ago regarding the politics of our time, when we didn't know there was such a thing as a swing state, and living in a location where the chosen TV stations don't cover your area is a blessing. You can read the post here . . .
In my conversations with Butch Pederson (LMHS '62) last week we also discussed the football season that I discovered had been a downer for both teams/schools. By the time we played against each other in the last game I am sure he was looking more favorably at the upcoming basketball season than our last football game. Both teams limped to the finish line, NKHS because of the loss of key players and in his opinion their misfortune came from people playing in the wrong position. He's right - he probably should have been their running back.
Strangely enough, I didn't know or had forgotten that he was playing across the line from me, although we were not head-up. Regarding the incorrect score posted in their annual he laughed and said, "Yeah, we saw it and knew it was wrong. But I figured what the heck, it meant another win for us!" Ha Ha, I said.
It was about this time of the summer in 1961 when we were beginning to fantasize about a great senior football season, so we determined some illegal summertime practice would be a good thing. It lasted one night, and you can find out why by reading this post . . .
