This is a new series I'm trying out. I'll give some questions, and I'll let you decide the answers. Please comment, I want to hear all of the different responses.

Ah, it's finally here. Football season! Living in a small town all about the sport, there is no time more loved than football season. Last night my school North Augusta beat Midland Valley High and continued to dominate our rivalry against them. There were some ups and downs, which I've seen in college games also, which makes me wonder if the smallest things can affect a game.


The School Band: Last night we were starting to lose confidence, thanks to some horrible calls by the ref. All of our heads were down until our band started to play Bonecrusher, which is our defenses favorite song. The next play our star LB way-layed the QB and got us going again. So here is the question.

Can the school band really make a difference in the outcome of a game?


The Crowd: At the beginnnig of the 2nd half, we were upset. We were embarrased. In the last two minutes, we were scored on twice. We were ahead 26-13, but we didn't expect that, and couldn't find a way to come back. We were basically depressed, until five of the students in our student section started chanting "We still own you!" and one of them started dancing. It didn't get us pumped up, but it got us in a better mood. We were laughing again. We were getting excited again. And in the end, we won again 41-13.

How important is an excited crowd?


The...Idiots: A few years ago when my brothers were playing MV, we were down by six, I think. The ref had been throwing bull flags, and we couldn't get ahead. That is, until a crazy fan (I am proud to call my best friend) ran through the field and chased down the man until he was tackled by my brother. We both are on the team now, and we both remember that what he did gave NA a sense of humor, straightend out the ref, and helped the team keep the record going.

Do we need crazy fans?
