For the love of the game…..

My youngest daughter is a sophomore at the University of West Florida, whose football team is in the second year of existence. Tomorrow afternoon it is playing for the Division 2 national championship.

Being from Panama City, I am proud that there are more than a few players on the roster from my home town. These kids were recruited to a program in its infancy, none of them were high-profile recruits, and now they have the opportunity to play for a championship. That is a feel-good, success story, if there ever was. The game is going to be carried on ESPN 2 tomorrow afternoon. I will certainly be watching……
