Is “Football: The Real OC” overrated???

Am I the only person in the SGV who feels like the OC is a totally different world?
I really like Orange County’s intensity toward high school sports. I like the fans, I like the OC Register, I like the dedication, I like Disneyland, I like my NL-only fantasy baseball league which is based out of North Orange County, I like Newport Beach in August … I just like it all.

Here’s what some coaches said about all-league and all-area

I can do this because I have the sources. Here’s what some of the top coaches in the area think about the legitimacy of all-league and Tribune all-area teams.

Covina vs. South Hills last season … Who would have won?

BUT FIRST A DIATRIBE: When I go cover a game I often form opinions about the teams, players and coaches, most of which doesn’t come out in my game story. Or at least they’re not supposed to. Anyway, a game story isn’t supposed to include Aram Tolegian’s opinion of a team, its players and coaches. It’s supposed to be “here’s the final score, this is what happened, and my best explanation of why.” Only in columns do my opinions come out. But columns (in print) are rare. However, I do often wonder the same things that fans do. But in game stories I can’t say what I really think, only what happened. And sometimes there just isn’t enough to say to fill a column. That’s why I have this blog. This is what I truly think. If you no likey, then post a counter argument. If you really no likey, then kick rocks. There are plenty of other places in Al Gore’s Internet where you can go be miserable. I also have this blog because I like to read the opinions of others, no matter if we agree or disagree.
