It was the end of week six of the football season and a fellow employee, who shall not be named, (Deb Spiczka) asked me what I thought the chances were Perham would defeat Thief River Falls.


I did not reply in the affirmative. In fact, I proclaimed a loss.

Deb agreed with me.

The Yellowjackets were 2-3 and had been the victim of bad luck, bad timing and on the field their play was impressive at times, but not enough to seal victories consistently.
