Frosty morning shout-out to Fishersville Mike ...

... fellow SWAC blogger and Augusta County resident who is hunkering down for a purple Super Bowl. Should be an interesting match-up ... East Coast versus West Coast ... brother coaches ... new team versus established team ... Baltimore Ravens versus the San Francisco Forty-Niners.

All my teams were eliminated so this is a purely-for-fun Super Bowl but I remember the days when Ken Willard, who went to our church and still lives in my parents' neighborhood in a Richmond suburb and played for San Francisco. What fans we young people were of his talent! He was a fullback, #40, for the Forty-Niners from 1965-73 and so we became fans of the Red and Gold and cheered them on because of Ken Willard.

That was then, and this is now. May the best team win in Sunday's match-up!
