  1. The saddest part is not knowing. The cleats darn sure didn’t hurt.
  2. I was at the game pulling for Richlands and can’t agree with this statement. While I believe Richlands was the superior team that day in the mud, with or without the cleats, I’m not so confident regarding what might have occurred had they played on a dry field. Salem was a beast that year, beating eventual AAA Division 6 champion Pulaski County. That Richlands team squeaked by Gate City and Powell Valley, and almost lost to a mediocre Marion team in the mud. The near loss at Marion speaks to the difference a soggy field can make. I’ve often wondered if perhaps the Marion game spurred Vaught to buy the infamous cleats. Anyway, we’ll never know. Just my two cents …
  3. I grabbed my inhaler after agreeing with you on virtually every point. 😱🤕🔨 When I have more time I’ll throw in some thoughts of my own regarding the state of the two dominant parties.
  4. He’s a teenager playing with a broken wheel in a game he’ll remember the rest of his life and you feel the need to compound his sorrow. Shame on you, dude.
  5. I don’t anticipate any of the new treatments effectively stemming the movement of the virus into all areas of the country. We’re going to see a lot of death before things get better.
  6. Hmmmm, I suppose “athletic” can be a relative term.
  7. Wait. Was UVAObserver trying to annoy Tornado fans by reminding us that we’ve owned Tazewell for almost a third of a century? Counting the number of eating establishments in each town would have caused a hell of a lot more pain.
  8. Nice article— and if Tazewell beats Richlands by an average 47 points for the next 10 years ... they will still trail Richlands in total points scored in the series. No one’s talking to you, Bluefield (WV or VA)
  9. I’ve attached a not too recent sports page from the October 3, 1953, edition of the Bristol Herald Courier. Articles on Richlands beating Tazewell, St. Charles whipping Gate City and Saltville stunning Graham. I’ve not yet looked thru all the papers from earlier in that week, but I’ll post Bulldog52’s pregame complaint as soon as I find the letters to the editor.
  10. If Mitchell is touching the ball every play, I'll take Union by 2 touchdowns.
  11. I can't say that the 2004 Bluefield team wouldn't defeat the 2006 Richlands team, but I do know that they squeezed out a 3 point win over Mount View (6-4), and would have lost to Weir ... had the Weir coach simply kept the ball on the ground with a 2 score lead and under 2 minutes to go. The idea that the Bluefield team would "murder and then feast" on that Richlands team is absurd.
