‘Armpit’ Comment Riles Highlanders

On his VarsityCDA blog, Ryan Collingwood reports that Highland High fans weren't too happy with a comment by SR colleague Greg Lee comparing Pocatello to an armpit in a Pigskin Picks item for his Web site:

Highland fans weren’t too happy with Greg Lee’s “armpit of Idaho” comment he made in the most recent installment of Prep Picks (see comments). Funny thing is, though, was some Highland fans and coaches thinking I might have been Lee and gave me a piece of their mind on Friday night. Highland’s good, I get that. And Pocatello isn’t as bad as people think (I lived there two years and miss some things about it) — but don’t try to convince me it’s great.  And no, it’s not better than Spokane, as one sure-of-himself Highland coach told me.  Anyone who’s ever left Bannock County can tell you that. Full blog post here.

  • BTW, the link above will provide info re: the status of CHS Vik Jacques Mort, who was hurt in the loss to Highland at Coeur d'Alene Friday.

Question: Have you ever lived in a town that you would desribe as an “armpit”?
