It’s Thursday, just one day from football


If you watch ESPN at all, you can't avoid those unrelenting Monday Night Football promos. You know the ones I mean, the insipid, "Wednesday, it's hard to spell and it's football limbo because it's 324 days to Monday …" ads.

Well, I'm not about to let ESPN be the only media outlet that drives you insane with promos. That's my job too. So let's get to it. (And read this with a deep voice please.)

"Thursday, prep page day. The day to plan your prep weekend. Sure, 'Friends' is no longer on (except only every night in syndication), but it's only one day to Friday, prep football day."

The lead piece in the S-R's Idaho Prep Page concerns the Lake City football team's defense, which has been almost unbreakable this season. The prep profile is on Timberlake's Scott Holbrook, the Intermountain League's lineman of the year. And the Quick Hits includes all league teams.

The Washington page leads with a feature about Gonzaga Prep's defensive front, which has been nearly unbreakable this season (notice a trend here?). The Prep Profile is about Kayla Newberg and her Riverside High volleyball team. Mike Vlahovich's column looks back on a fall prep season filled with success for the area's teams and players. And then there is Quick Hits, which examines the upcoming girls' state swimming meet.

Don't forget to check out Greg Lee's blog and Mike's Prep Report blog.
