On a bright and sunny day with Blue Angel Jets Roaring through the blue skies, a very competitive high school football game was played here in San Francisco. The Galileo Lions hosted last season's champion Mission High Bears and the game was much closer than the final score would indicate.
Friday Night High School Football is still as exciting as ever with the zaniest of incidents taking place both on the field and off. Play was delayed a few times early in the game due to the eardrum bursting boom of the jets overhead.
The electronic scoreboard seemed to go out everytime the jets made a pass. The public announcer sounded like a visually challenged member of the Lions glee club, constantly getting the Bears down and distance wrong. There was plenty of pushing and shoving after plays by both teams and even the cheerleaders were googlie-eyeing one another in-between chants. Yep, a typical friday night lights kind of day.
Kickoff was at 3pm, just as the Blue Angels took to the skies. There was one entertaining stunt plane doing loops, zig-zags and swirling smoke dives through the air. Perfect day on the bay.
Then after the coin flip, the zig-zags and stunts began on the football field.
