Maybe they don't play on Friday nights in order to keep players, coaches, officials and fans from having to be out after dark!

And the one thing I noticed is that not every school has a field, so I assume scheduling is a real hassle.

Interesting enough, back in the 50's and 60's, evidently Columbia drew quite a bit of press for football, according to Dave Marissey in his book on Vince Lombardi, "When Pride Still Mattered".  The only thing I know about columbia is that the actor Ed Harris used to be their quarterback.

And Lou Gehrig was their first baseman.

Well, I'm up here. Timing stunk because I got here too late to take part in this season in New York, and of course all my pals in Atlanta started the regular season last Friday.

I'm going to take my time and sniff around, I guess, getting in touch with PSAL about next season. Biggest question I have is just where the games are played and how accessible they are to someone without a car.

Have a great -- and safe -- season everyone!

The drivers.  Quite frankly, the drivers here are absolutely horrible.  This comes from somebody that has driven quite a bit in both the LA and SF Bay Area regions.

Drivers?  Are you serious?  You must be talking about golf.  The drivers in LA and all of California are really bad.  People there hit there breaks over anything and create traffic jams.  It's like a leaf blow across the highway and one car hits the breaks and then everyone, in response to that one car tapping their breaklights, hit theirs and then you have 3 miles of traffic jam.  It's a freaking leaf people.   ;D
