The close up is of Steve in the same picture below. He is getting ready to put his facemask in my ribs. I told him that a facemask in my ribs was better than than a punch in the mouth on that previous Saturday night.
In looking back on that night, Steve said. "We were bada...es in that parking lot for about 3 seconds."
I am happy for Steve. At least he was a tough guy for 3 seconds. I've never been a tough guy!
And, seriously, it may have been 10 carloads, or more. I didn't count them. I will tell you this, there were a bunch. That's for sure. If I live to be an old man, the rest of my life I will have former Rebels telling me they were one of the guys that ran me out of Danville. I will enjoy that and I am looking forward to it. Just like Steve was a tough guy for 3 seconds, maybe we can be HS football players for just a few seconds. That would be good.
