  • ‘Football is a rough game’

    Kentucky is No. 1 and well deserving of the top spot. Okay, I got that over with.

    I watched the Vikings give the game to the Saints Sunday night with my wife and answered many interesting questions. Most of them concern Brett Favre and why he was getting hammered on almost every pass in the second half. 

    Can they do that? 

    Why does he stay in there and let them knock him down? 

    Peyton Manning ducks down to the ground when he sees them coming, why doesn’t Favre?

    Harrison County’s Fillies played perhaps their best game of the year Friday night, but came away on the short end of the score at Campbell County. 

    The Lady Camels, who are thought to be a top four team in the region, could never pull away and edged the Fillies 63-55.
