Star Picks: Gobble, Gobble, Turkey Tussle’s here

Melendez last week (overall): 13-5 (108-57-1)

Last week: I’m still buzzing from last Thursday’s game. PHS’s Aaron Simpson connects on a 45-yard touchdown pass to Andrew Wells with 1.7 seconds left to give the Bulldogs an incredible 45-41 win over Burbank. It was easily the best game I’ve covered all season. I got wrong picks when I went with Bell Gardens (lost to Alhambra); Cantwell (lost to La Salle); St. Francis (lost to Alemany); Duarte (lost to Workman); and Burbank (lost to Pasadena).

This week: This is it. After today, some of you will never wear a football uniform again. For the seniors, soak in the experience. The lights. The band. The smell of the food. The smell of the dirt. The smell of the grass. When you walk onto that field it may be the last time you get to enjoy the roar of a crowd. Enjoy the night or day while it’s still there. Win or lose, you were part of something special you’ll cherish the rest of your lives. We will have Turkey Tussle coverage every day this week, leading up to Friday’s game at the Rose Bowl. But this game isn’t the only one with playoff implications on the line. St. Francis, Temple City, San Marino, Alhambra, La Salle, Flintridge Prep and Pasadena Poly all need to win to get an automatic bid. Flintridge Prep seems to have the hardest road there because it not only plays Chadwick but the Rebels also need the Panthers to lose. Thursday I’ll be covering Arcadia and Friday I’ll once again be at the Rose Bowl.

    GO YOU MIGHTY BULLDOGS!!!!!

    FANS! Lets enjoy the game without the usual confrontation of Dogs & Stangs trash talking in the bowl. There’s been fist fights and rock throwing at PHS fans in the past (I’ve seen it and dodged it many years ago) A game without incident would be a great thing to see in our community!

  • Huckster!!!!!

    I’m ready for the “DOGS” to give these Mules a brutal ass whipping!!!!!! LETS GO BULLDOGS!!!

    Oddsmaker,

    You must me a professionl! PHS by 12 if Muir makes it a game in the 1st quarter! If PHS gets loose in the 1st quarter they’ll win by 21 or more! I understand its a rivial game, but Muir has yet to score 21 offensive points on any team in the Pacific League! They will not be getting any freebees in the Bowl “Sir”! Bottom line is the DOGS win big!!!!! 35-7!

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
