Goodbye Coach Curry, hello Commentator Curry?

Now that he's no longer coaching the Berwick Bulldogs, could George Curry find a new calling in life? Tonight, he was paired alongside WBRE sports reporter Phil Schoener for a look at tonight's high school football games. Tonight's appearance may just be a one-time-only deal. But given how big high school football is in this area, and Curry's almost god-like status as a successful coach, WBRE would be very smart to peg him as a commentator or analyst.

Someone should tell George it is OK to smile while you're on camera. He barely cracked a smile until the very end of the segment. Sure, it's cold as hell out there tonight, but that didn't stop Schoener from smiling up a storm, did it?

Sick and tired of the high school football hero worship. If you have a kid playing, I can see the enthusiastic support. Otherwise you're an ex-jock re-living your glory days. Sad. Coach Curry I'm sure is a helluva nice guy. And now we'll all fall for a neanderthal in a Wise potato chip hat pontificating about something so inconsequential that it boggles the mind?

If you're sick and tired of the "high school football hero worship," you better get used to it. High school football is VERY popular in this state. You can't open up a newspaper's sports page without seeing the Friday night recap. People take it too far around here. But, well, that's just how it is. There's not much in this area to be happy for anyway.

Glorifying school kids whose most notable contribution to their academic environment is their ability to catch a ball should not be on the list of things we're "happy for".

Second on that list, touting your high school football information on a resume or job application as if that will tip the scales in your favor and by doing so not only not being pitied, but getting the job because of it.
