Cape Gazette SPORTS TUESDAY, AUGUST 5- THURSDAY, AUGUST 7, 2008 2S t ook Continued from page 24 medal at the games which is bet- ter than high expectations be- cause some people like me are fueled by low expectations. POPPING MY BALLOON - Teaching is the toughest of pro- fessions because in moments of exaltation when some students are lifting you off the ground with heartfelt compliments oth- ers are chopping you off at the knees telling you in all sincerity how much they liked you be- cause "you didn't do nothing." When people close to 30 years old delightfully reminisce in sto- ries of my worthlessness, I con- sider going on the attack, but I have always refused to assert my intelligence at the expense of others which is why I was a great teacher and bad one at the same time. But hey, when high school is over we all need to get over high school SNIPPETS - Speaking of run- ning in races or for political of- fice, I came across results for the 1979 Lewes Marathon and there was the name of Jud Bennett, who ran 4:02. And before you say, "No he didn't," I must tell you I was thereand yes, he did. I also saw him run a 46-minute 10K the same year. So all you scrawny Clydesdales out there who swim inside double-X T- shirts throw some respect to his- tory. The Lewes Marathon had weight classes from the begin- ning and one year some 6-foot-7 Lurch-looking joker ran a 3:07 and when he went up to get his award everyone booed. "He ain't no Clydesdale! Give us a fat guy!" Amanda ]acona is the new head field hockey coach at Mil- ford High School. Mike Eisen- hour is her varsity assistant. The junior varsity coaches are former Cape players ]en Warren and Amy Shockley. Milford, by the way, has two new tuff stadi- ums and they are ready for the fall season. Cape's Legends Stadium has new bleachers on the former visitor side and there will be a new press box and so com- mences the game of "who gets to sit there" which is always weird. That's why I stand with the team on the sidelines where I can smell the sweat and hear the lan- guage like one time when coach Bill Geppert yelled at an official, "Holy peanut butter and jelly!" and Gep even went to Villanova, a Catholic college. I liked it when Brian Donahue would un- leash a conspiracy theory tirade on an official. "Hey are you only calling that on us? What about them? Don't they commit any penalties? Is it just us? We can't be holding on every play? Don't they hold? Is it just us? If we get a big gain are you going tO call it back? Is that how it's going to be tonight? We are the team that holds and they never hold? That's it, just call things no one sees on us to keep the game close? C'mon, at least give us a chance!" All you can pick up in the press box is a CPD - complimen- tary press dog - actually at the high school level nothing is complimentary. Holy macaroni and cheese! Go on now, gift The Schweizer family from Wilmington includes (I-r) Rhett, 11, Haley, 13, Courtney, 17 (All-State lacrosse player at St. Mark's), dad Paul (Wilmington physical therapist who has been running since the 1970s) and Taryn, 14.
