When I was a student at Mentor High School, we had one of the worst football teams in Northeast Ohio. I attended nearly every home game. After I graduated, the program became successful.
Well, last night, I went to the game.
Mentor fell to Strongsville in the regional playoffs 17-3. They rushed just 19 yards after averaging 216.5 yards a game during the regular season. It was the first time they were kept out of the end zone since last year's state title game -- which I also watched live.
Sorry, Mentor. I didn't realize I was a football jinx.
