I can't explain this phenomenon, but tonight, our local high school is practicing football! I've lived right behind the high school for some 5 years, in fact just over the fence in my back yard IS the football stadium. I've watched these guys through two-a-days, season opening kick-offs, and even the playoffs, right from the comforts of my back deck. But, I've never seen any type of organized football practices in mid-June. They have their helmets on, the lower practice field has been chalk lined and coned, the sled is out, etc... They're out there running passing routes right now as I type this. I can't explain it, but holy cow has it put me in the mood for some FOOTBALL! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

What are those tall green things surrounding the field?

Distant relatives of these things that you San Diegans are likely more familiar with. :moon :P

Well, compared to most every where else in this state, those are commonly referred to as hills. Maybe mountains to you flat-footed desert dwellers. LOL :wink:
