"Religion cannot and does not contemplate man as free. She accepts only the homage of the prostrate and scorns the offering of those who stand erect."
I just want to say a word about the pleasure of high school football, when an important victory comes along. Tonight the Salt Mine defeated Oak Harbor 50-33 in playoffs at OH. Two weeks ago OH was undefeated. Then they lost to Meadowdale in the conference championship, so this game tonight was supposed to be theirs. I listened on the internet, and enjoyed a superb game. well matched teams. SMHS led by three (22-19) at halftime. Then OH came out and scored two touchdown after the half for a depressing 33-22 lead. From that point on SMHS just destroyed them, three big turnovers, Great runs. Just total dominance. They ran away with it 50-33. Their reward? They play at Bellevue, the number one team in the state next weekend.I can still get excited for a game like tonight's, and there are never enough of them, though the SM has had its share over the years.
