LIVE: Class 4A championship game from Hillsboro

Follow along here for live updates throughout today's Class 4A state championship game between the Baker Bulldogs and Douglas Trojans.

Sportlight's 10 Things for Week 8

Our resident smart aleck looks at clearing Class 5A and 4A playoff pictures, and finds yet another way the "new parent" is excusing our youth of getting exercise.



Sportlight's 10 Things for Week 7

As most of Oregon’s Class 4A schools have finally begun League play, yours truly takes a look at each of the league’s playoff races, chimes on finally seeing the remake of a classic football film, and wonders what in the world pop star Pink has to do with the NFL.


Oh, and there just might be a little surprise at the end.

10 Things I think I think, Part 3

First, let me say that I'm surprised this blog has gathered the following it has. So thanks to all of you who read it every week. Hopefully in time it will become more entertaining. :-)



Now, on with the show:
