Last week I went to The Bonfire and I sat down next to a couple of older folks. Being the nosey person I am, I listened to their conversation because they were talking about college football.
We will call them Bill and Bob...because I don't know their names.
They were talking about Taylor Martinez's inability to throw a football correctly and how the loss of Jared Crick for the season might be a good thing because he wasn't a force to be reckoned with.
Then the conversation went like this:
" Exactly who's our rival, Bob?" - Bill
" You know, I don't know. "- Bob
Ansley (28-1) will square off with Giltner (19-7) on Thursday night for the District D2-4 championship at 7:00 p.m. The match will be played at Kearney Catholic High School.
Twin Loup (22-7) will play Sutherland (20-11) on Thursday for the District D1-6 championship at 7:00 p.m. That match will take place at Cozad High School.
There are three local playoff football games Wednesday night.
Burwell travels to South Loup in a rematch from earlier in the season.
Anselmo-Merna takes on Sargent, also a rematch of a game played last month.
