So...in history, there have been a bunch of significant “Firsts”. Obama was the first black president, John Wayne was the first real cowboy movie star, and Mad Magazine was the first great comic book! Last Friday night’s football game between Rye and Rocky Ford had a significant “first”. Rye’s stellar defense gave up it’s first touchdown of the year.

Polk called for the snap, but the exchange was fumbled, and recovered by Rocky Ford. Rocky Ford’s Quarterback then found an open receiver in the corner for a TD. Rocky ford was up 12 to 7 at the half.

During halftime, the 300 plus crowd was treated to AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck.” I grew up in the seventies, so I like AC/DC. There ya go…
