Saint Joe’s Kicker (Flash 55)

St. Joseph’s couldn’t gain ground that stormy day, post-hurricane.
Fear of canceled Homecoming ended. However, superstition states rivals still battle.

4th Quarter…. Fat muddy coach screams, spikes playbook,
“Field Goal Team get out there!”

Gold and black, Steeler-like jersey, bobbling-Titan helmet—130 lbs. sophomore kicker trots to the 40.

Hike… fumbled snap…. It’s up… and…
No good.

Care to listen to the play-by-play!

  9. LOL Huge let down… that’s usually how I feel when I sit down to watch a sporting event with too much hype and way too many commercials interrupting the flow of the game. On a good note, I am enjoying the World Cup very much 🙂
