On ESPN2 this friday, from 8pm onward is one of the biggest high school games in the country. Highlights of the Parkview/Norcross game will be shown throughout the Fresno game, and the halftime of the college game will be used for the Norcross game. Some info on the rivalry: Norcross is 5-0 this year, Parkview is 6-0 this year and is on a 36 game (state champs two years in a row, undefeated both years) winning streak, and is number 2 in the NATION! Norcross the past two years has given Parkview there closest game of both years, last year Parkview only won 21-19. Norcross also has the homefield advantage. It should be a great game in a Rockyish type vein: the underdogs who put up a good fight vs the powerhouse. Just to let everyone know, I am from Norcross and played Varsity ball for them for 3 years.... so guess who I am rooting for!
If nothing else, Ricky's comeback will raise the bar on NFL beards. Did you see that thing? Yikes. It looked like that thing Peter Griffin grew that had birds living inside of it. Ricky has the best-looking NFL beard since Jeff Garcia's girlfriend.
