Either it just starts earlier and earlier every year, or the summer has flown by since we baked most of July, but it's that time for High School football! Rockford and Lowell kick off the area's pursuit to Ford Field on Thanksgiving weekend! SO i pose this question: since most people move less than 10 miles from where they grew up, do (or did) your kids go to a different high school than you? And if they did, do you root for their school, or for your old school?

I went to a school in Portage, and while I haven't been back to a game in years, I still look online to see how they do. And if they beat our arch rivals. Go Mustangs!

Plenty of other local teams kick the season off tonight and this weekend...Here's a good place to find out about the games and the matchups!
