Eastside seeks fast start tonight in new region

This time last year, Eastside High School football was surrounded by question marks. Were the Eagles a one-hit wonder? Was their 2008 success all about Justin Wray and the six other players who went off to play college football? Was Git Aiken a soft running back?
After a 1-2 start, the Eagles answered those questions by going undefeated in Region 8-AAA play and making it all the way to the Class AAA semifinals. Entering tonight's game with Locust Grove though, some of those questions have reemerged.
Aiken turned out to be the most prolific back in Eastside history and ...

Cologne by the six pack

I love to smell fine fragrances. Wear chic French perfume around me and I'll sniff the air and try to guess which movie star you're pretending to be. Give me a scratch-and-sniff cologne sample and I'll wear my fingernail down as I scratch up the sweet aroma. But if you apply too much fragrance, I'll turn red and make gagging noises in your direction. I can't help it. I have a sensitive nose, and some people just don't know when to stop spraying, splashing and misting.
