Because of poor air quality in Yucaipa, tomorrow’s game between the Thunderbirds and Fontana High School has been relocated to Palm Springs High School and will be played at 7 p.m. tomorrow. Also, Summit and Patriot are preliminarily scheduled to play tomorrow at Jurupa Valley, but a final determination will take place tomorrow morning.
Friday’s scheduled game between Rialto and Eisenhower will take place at Ike, but when it will take place is still up for debate. It will either be Friday, as scheduled, or Monday night if the air quality is ruled to be deficient. A ruling will be made by noon tomorrow.
Because of concerns of poor air quality due to the fires in the mountains, the San Andreas League has canceled its football schedule for Friday.
Because of the air quality situation in Redlands, Redlands East Valley’s game with Carter on Friday night has been moved from the University of Redlands to La Quinta High School.
Because of smoke in the Bear Valley, Big Bear High School is canceling its volleyball matches with Yucca Valley Thursday and postponing the second round of the DeAnza League girls golf tournament set to be held Thursday at Bear Mountain Golf Course.
It’s a little weird to be talking about football with all the fires going on, but maybe a little football discussion is what we need. It certainly can’t hurt. So here’s my weekly top 10 ballot.
When I called Rim of the World football coach Bob Gradillas on his wife’s cell phone this evening, I had no idea what to expect. Having kept up with the Sun’s coverage of the Lake Arrowhead fires and watching the local news, not to mention seeing the smoke from it billowing in the distance from my Rancho Cucamonga apartment, I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Another below .500 NFL record, going 5-8. Hey, at least I’m consistent. I’ll attempt to be consistent and cover on Monday night for the fifth straight week as well. Keep your fingers crossed.
Indianapolis (-3) at Jacksonville
Jacksonville has always been an annoying gnat to Indy’s Joba Chamberlain, buzzing around and pulling an upset over the Colts relatively often. At 4-1, the Jags winning wouldn’t be an upset. In fact, I’m calling it.
Jacksonville 27, Indianapolis 24
Quite a bit of movement after the top 4, who are still undefeated and plugging right along.
Well, I don’t know about that, but after going 8-2 with no thought Saturday, I’m going to try to do the same today. Yeah buddy!
