Red and Gold more smiles more pride and more gratitude filled the Home away from Home stands tonight as our Newport Knights took to the field against Hazen on what was and exciting Homecoming performance. We came up short but you know what? We had one heck of a good time and we looked good, we really were a well put together package of entertainment tonight. I for one am so proud of our school and everyone who made it to one of the greatest Homecomings ever.
We had very special VIP'S in the stadium tonight the Class of 66 and Class of 67 and I am pretty certain they had a good time, I know we truly did our best to show them Knight blood runs deep and we will always be bound by our knighthood. As far as the actual football game? I am no expert on the game you know I am a Teddy Bear, from where I was sitting, I saw lot's of great downs, I saw us making first downs and I saw the other team punting to us...in my book that's improvement! We made touchdowns, we lead, we had the makings of a truly terrific game, we just ran out of time and we fell short.
Please bear with me... I know of this man named Bear and he said:
Losing doesn’t make me want to quit, it makes me want to FIGHT that much HARDER
So next week we get back to work boy's and let's remember we fall down, we get back up again and we will just fight harder...dig deep let's fight harder and put together a win!
Hey I have got to make a shout out to my boss and his crew, Joel your team rocked the Knights brand like I have never seen before, Bellevue High School never looked so good!
Well I had a blast, met some older folks who played way back in the 60's and I saw some more recent alumni who were equally thrilled by our super Knight party atmosphere that we spread all over Wolverine territory, you know I should also say a big thank you to Bellevue High School as hard as it was for us to use their school, it's got to be just as hard for them to let us use it, anyway a sincere thank you for letting us call your place our home and what a great staff who welcomed us.
Anyway in the end Hazen had the points on the board and we still had one of the best HOCO's ever. And next week we will have to fight and work that much harder when we are away at Juanita taking on the Rebels it should be another fun game, we hope to see you all there.
Some call him Ted some call him Teddy.
