Football Week 2 and other leftovers

I went 3-1 with my picks. The only game I got wrong was Weston’s first win over ND in more than 10 years. Who knew? Ridgefield 45, Ludlowe 0. This result is interesting. I’m not sure whether it is an indictment of Ludlowe or proof of Ridgefield’s running prowess. It’s probably both. But either way,

Week 2 football picks

I’ll spare you all the shtick and get straight to the picks. Griswold (1-0) at Prep (0-1), Friday, 6 p.m., Alumni Field- Crossover week in the SCC brings us this wonderful matchup. I can honestly say that I don’t even know where Griswold High School is. Although, upon further inspection, it appears that it is

Week 1 football recap

Wow. I know I’ve said that a lot over the course of my tenure here, but I think the drubbing that Fairfield’s four high schools took this weekend can not be overstated. Only Fairfield Prep was ever in the game. Hell, only Fairfield Prep scored double digit points in its respective opening game. The two

My biggest broadcasting pet peeves

The more that I watch sports on TV, the more I realize that people on TV are incapable of talking. Trust me, I know that it is not easy to talk on the spot. Sometimes it isn’t even easy to write on the spot. And with TV personalities constantly multitasking, it makes it harder. However,

Fall sports schedules-Girls volleyball

Girls volleyball is one of the more successful universal programs in Fairfield. Both Ludlowe and Warde reached the state playoffs in 2009, with Ludlowe making a trip to the state finals. However, both public teams have promoted assistants as head coaches in 2010. For Ludlowe Chris Skelton will be the new coach, for Warde, Matt

Fall sports schedules- Field hockey

Field hockey is a growing sport in Fairfield, as both local teams made the state playoffs a year ago. Warde reached the FCIAC playoffs as well. The Mustangs got off to a hot start and reached FCIACs for the first time ever. Ludlowe missed those playoffs by just one game. Without further ado, here are

Fall Sports Schedules: Girls soccer

The girl soccer teams in Fairfield are probably the best programs in the town. Warde’s team is only three years removed from a state title. Ludlowe’s went to the state and FCIAC semfinals, and have loftier goals in mind for 2010. Without further ado, the girls soccer schedules for 2010 of the three teams in
