    I'm charged with previewing a game between (No. 4 school, 8-0) and (No. 2 school, 6-1) to decide the district championship. Huge game. I have no idea how to lead a game of this magnitude.

    How about...

    If you live 50 miles from Podunk or Hillbilly High, you don't give a shit about this game, but for those of you who do, just like in any big game, big plays will win the game.

    50 miles? I have two high schools within about 2 of me and I don't know jack shit about either of them, much less care about who they're playing and when.

    The number four school will play the number two school tonight in a football game.

    Do you like high school football?

    If you answered yes, then come to Podunk High tonight to watch Podunk vs. Nowhere High. Not only will it be a game between two top-ranked teams, but they will all try hard.

    Just a typical preview should be fine...boost it up with some graphic or special art of some sort. Do the clashing helmet thing and blowout a big photo to go with it. Looking into the history of this matchup would probably give you something, too.

    Why are you doing a preview? Everyone who cares about football in the area already knows about it.

    Go find a swimmer to feature.
