Did anybody else just hear Matt Millen mention Monrovia? …

I was in a semi-daze, but I swear NFL Network color man Matt Millen just said “Doesn’t matter if you’re Monrovia High School, which just won a championship, Marin Roman Catholic High School, which is about to play for a championship, or in the NFL, you have to be playing your best ball at this time of year.”

This was during the Chargers-49ers broadcast.

    FYI – Matt and the Oakland Raiders have a friend or two in M-Town.

  • Thought I was nuts

    I also heard it and I couldn’t believe it, an NFL game and they are talking about a So. Section, Division 11 team. WOW… Unbelievable

  • QuietCat

    Can someone put that on youtube

    Good, so I’m not going crazy.

    I don’t think Monrovia or D-11 are as small time as some people think.

    Aram,
    It’s nice to have you on the Monrovia train. You are consistently a GREAT homer/supporter of teams you like. I still remember and respect your efforts of pumping up So Hills during the spring one year with the hopes of creating enough notoriety to get them into a bowl game if they had finished undefeated.

    It’s true that father of Monrovia’s Mason Bryant is friends with Matt Millen and was a receiver of Oakland Raider offensive coordinator Hue Jackson when they played @ UOP back in the late ’80′s. Therefore I supposed he mentioned the recent CIF championship to either of them.

    UOP’s roots are deep. Pete Carroll coached there and Nick Holt was their MLB when Kennedy Bryant played there.

    Yes indeed the UOP Football family is still alive and kicking. Even though UOP has abandoned football our football family tree is still alive and well. Special thanks to Hue Jackson, Pete Carroll, John Grueden and many others that continue to reign supreme. Im very proud of my son Mason Bryant and all of the rest of the MHS Wildcats. Needless to say all those that know me, know that I voice me opinion and run mouth a tremdous amount. But their is now a new @#$% talker in the house and thats my son Mason. As he is forever more a CIF Champion and he so pleasantly and constantly reminds me of he done something I never did. Well I”ll keep reminding him you still have to get a Div I scholarship and graduate from college. And Ill take those over a CIF Championship. CAN I GET A WITNESS
