    Might be biggest case of homerism I've ever read. Hilarious

    For all the people I know who grew up in Bristol and like to talk about how "tough" the town is, this made me chuckle. Want some cheese with that wine? The author of this piece should be embarrassed.

    According to some of the Facebook replies beneath the article, it was apparently the Bristol players trying to start fights throughout the game, including one player kicking another in the back.

    I don't think he used enough cliches.

    FWIW, Bristol nearly went at it with their previous opponent, Williams Valley, last week in the first round of states.

    Jack Henzes is held in pretty high regard up Scranton way.

    Live about 20 minutes from Dunmore. They love him up there, seems to be a quality guy.

    Some random local fan asked me afterward what I thought of Dunmore.

    “Dirtiest team I’ve seen in 10 years,” "Hey, asshole, I'm on deadline here," I said.

    obviously a guy who doesn't have an editor.

    And that's what made it a bad story before quoting himself.
  9. There's worse stuff on the Writing Workshop board. Why pick on some dipshit working for a rag?

    Because it deserved it?

    I can honestly say I've never seen it done. I wonder if he recorded himself?
