It’s time for the high school football season! There’s nothing quite like Friday Night in America.
I’m excited to watch our Clay County teams in action. Go Clay Center Tigers! Go Wakefield Bombers!
I’m also excited for the K-State season and to see what my Kansas City Chiefs can accomplish in what I consider a “do or die” season.
The song that always popped into my head before a Friday night football game as a player and as a coach was Street Fighting Man by The Rolling Stones. Great beat and cadence of what it felt like inside my head before a game. “Everywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet boy”
I think I finally found a replacement Friday Night in America song. Go! by the London electronic band, Public Service Broadcasting. It’s a song that hits the perfect pregame mental/emotional notes and, in this 50th anniversary year of the Apollo 11 mission, makes one want almost want to run through a brick wall.
Enjoy your opening week, everyone! I wish you joy and satisfaction this season.
Work hard and have fun!
But never forget…
Football is NOT life; it’s for a lifetime.
Friday Night In America
We did not come here for “spirit” or to be “peppy”, others will come for those.
We did not come here for peace, or love, or joy.
We came here to knock your pride into the dirt.
We came here to steal your dignity.
Friday Night in America.
