Naturally, things are very slow around here for the next few days, so I am going to enjoy the break (as long as we have no more arrests). I am considering going to North Central tonight to see North Central and Park Tudor face off. It is the No. 1 team in Class 4A against the No. 1 team in Class 2A, but more importantly, it is a preview of coming attractions. North Central's (and Purdue's) Ronnie Johnson will be going head-to-head against Park Tudor's (and Indiana's) Yogi Ferrell. That sounds like fun to me!
