I know that I’ve fallen off of the horse as far as this space is concerned. But I’ve come up with (what I think) is a pretty pertinent topic for a blog.
Who, in your opinion, is the best athlete in Fairfield town history?
It could be an athlete who is from Fairfield (James Blake or JJ Henry), it could be an athlete who played here in high school (Ted or Chris Drury), it could be someone who played here in college (Amanda Pape or Joe DeSantis).
It could be someone who is currently playing in high school or college, or someone who dates back further than I can remember. You, the readers, have all the influence, so I leave it to you.
Feel free to comment to this post, or e-mail me with your selections. Hope you guys have a little fun with this little project.
Prep wins holiday tourney
I know that the Jesuits are undefeated still, but they shocked everyone by beating ND-Fairfield in the final of their holiday tournament. I give major props to the team for overachieving so far, and being one win away from the state playoffs.
Sounds like the Prep kids are in shape and ready to roll this year. Warde beat Ludlowe in the consolation game. The Mustangs have won four of five since their dreadful opening night loss to Stamford.
Warde are Burger kings
The Mustangs’ defense dominated Ludlowe in the Todd Burger final. I was pleased to see it be an all-Fairfield affair, especially since Ludlowe avenged a loss earlier in the year to Brien McMahon. Good to hear that Todd’s family was there too. They are often there in support of the tournament.
As always, you can follow me on Twitter for updates and scores of games in Fairfield. Feel free to tweet at me your selection for the best athlete in Fairfield history as well. Happy New Year.
