    GORDO | Mother nature did the Gordo High School football team no favors when she douched the Greenwave's field with rain, and lots of it late, Thursday and Friday morning and afternoon.

    The slow track took away Gordo's ability to get the ball to its playmakers on the edge, which meant the Greenwave had to opt for a offense that featured a power running attack.

    Not as bad as the Chicago Tribune story from about 15 years ago that talked about Frank Thomas taking a pitcher deep in the count (minus the o).

    Chris Farley got "douched with mud" in Tommy Boy. Maybe that's what he was thinking? :)

    Am I the only one who noticed it was last modified two hours before it was published. Usually it's modified for updates/corrections after being published, not before.
