It's almost (high school) football time in Tennessee - 08/19/14

We're looking forward to another exciting season of high school football.  Dave Foster, Dan Phillips, and I love bringing you the action on FOX Football Friday.

Look for a little role-reversal this season.  Dave is normally out in the field, and I usually anchor from the studio.  But this season, we're changing things up.  I'll be live at a game site, and Dave will be holding down the fort with Dan at our Mainstream Drive headquarters.

There are several reasons for this change.  One - Dave wouldn't mind being in the climate-controlled studio for the first time in seven years (he's been beaten up by the elements long enough).  Two - I want to get out to some of the stadiums after more than a decade in studio on Friday nights (it gives me a chance to interact with the coaches and student-athletes more).  And three - FRIDAY NIGHT RIVALS!

Friday Night Rivals is the broadcast produced by our sister station.  Each Friday night, the MyTV30 crew will bring you one of the big games of the week.  I'll be a part of that broadcast in addition to my duties for FOX 17.

The entire season schedule for Friday Night Rivals can be found below.  Coverage begins at 7:00 pm.

I'm looking forward to being at the games!

Just wonder if I'll feel that way in November when the weather is freezing, and Dave is making fun of me from the comforts of our warm FOX 17 studio.


2014 Friday Night Rivals Schedule:

August 22 - Hendersonville vs. Wilson Central
August 29 - Centennial vs. Overton
September 5 - Giles Co. vs. CPA
September 12 - Marshall Co. vs. Columbia Central

POLICE-GOAT

SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Some Detroit-area cops are dealing with some real animals. Officers in Shelby Township had to take control of a black goat when it was found wandering a city park this week. Last month, the department rounded up an aggressive stray pig that charged a woman doing yard work. The pig was briefly detained and a photo of its ride in the back of a police cruiser went viral. The department is now trying to get the goat off its hands. Officers have posted a picture on Facebook, asking, "Does anyone know who owns this goat?!"

STONER CAMP

DURANGO, Colo. (AP) -- Plans for a pot-friendly ranch resort in Colorado have been snuffed out. The 170-acre CannaCamp resort touted weed-friendly activities like hiking and fishing. But a deal with the landowner fell through, and the marijuana-tourism company promoting the resort says it won't open after all. The deal was kicked after the announcement made international headlines and became the butt of jokes on late-night TV.

FIREWORKS TRUCK EXPLODES

IVANPAH, Calif. (AP) -- Fourth of July has come early along a Southern California freeway. A van packed with fireworks exploded yesterday in what one witness calls a "psychedelic" display. But the sparkling sight was a headache for everyone caught in the backup that ensued. The burned out van briefly closed the main road between Los Angeles and Las Vegas at the start of the holiday weekend. The driver of the van fled and hasn't been found.

MAILING METH

HONOLULU (AP) -- Most people see a toaster oven and think breakfast. Some criminals, think crystal meth. Two men are pleading not guilty to helping mail six pounds of methamphetamine from California to Hawaii in a four slice toaster. And it's not the first time drug smugglers have gotten savvy with shipments to the island state. Meth has previously been shipped to Hawaii in mannequin heads and stuffed animals.
