Brandon played this year's Cape game getting hurt and re-hurt; later it was discovered he had torn his ACL in the first quarter. Brandon has all the physical tools to be a great player;and he has always been a high-character person. A general meeting of the Dewey Beach Rugby Club was held Feb. 25 at the Greene Turtle in Lewes and I'm already con- fused. Just kidding, I know Dewey is currently closed.

Yes, it is a rude question, and I really don't want to know. Don't tell me that Ryan Zimmer- man of the Nationals signed a $100 million contract extension, because I used to like him; now it's like watching Romney play third base. Spring sports practices have begun and some teams already have friendly scrimmages sched- uled for Saturday, March 3. Cape girls' lacrosse will host Parkside, Stephen Decatur and Bennett. Decatur and Parkside are top- tier programs; not sure where Bennett falls on the power grid. Enjoy good spring weather while it's here. Just remember, if the winds blow off the bay or ocean, it is downright uncom- fortable, like a futon sofa bed. Spring YMCA flag football be- gins this Sunday, March 4, in Re- hoboth and Lewes.
