Thursday Night Football

Throughout 4 years of high school, I don't recall ever having a Thursday night game. Those were always reserved for jr. high. Last night we had a game and it was quite obvious no one wanted to be there. Not because no one wanted to support the team, but rather because these things throw the week off. Usually Thursdays are when these big tests are given and Friday is a light day filled with pep rallies and such.

That all changes when Thursday games come up. The feeling of game day Fridays doesn't apply until the end of the day on Thursdays, and then on Fridays its just this weird feeling sort of like the first day back after a break when you still feel lethargic and don't really want to be there.

Sad part about this is that in 3 weeks, I have another Thursday game. Ugh! Whoever came up with this concept needs to be drug out into the street and shot!

...ok, maybe not, but they need to explain why they came up with this crap!

Not quite the same vibe, is it? You probably have half of the crowd there too, right? I guess it is hard to schedule all of the sports in that allotted window and also add in the make-up games. Are these make-up games???

it really wasn't. you'd think sicne it was the other team's homecoming, there'd have ben more excitememnt, but it was just like whatever, y'know? no, this isn't a make uo game. they share the stadium with another school, and I they schedule their games accordingly. not sure all the details, though.
