Last year, I gloated over not getting rained during football season and I thumbed my nose at the elemental-powers-that-be. This year, my past actions caught up with me. Last Friday’s game between Stagg and Bear Creek at the Chavez High stadium in Stockton saw the first rainy night of the 2008-2009 season. While it wasn’t a deluge, there was enough rain for people to break out their umbrellas. I wore a light jacket and my handy-dandy rain hat and stayed dry enough.

Today’s forecast calls for wind, but no rain. Hopefully the rest of the season will remain dry. If not, I wonder if there is some sort of offering I can make to appease the weather gods?
