    Long-time teacher and announcer at Damien, Chuck Ballingall, passed away today. For those who never heard him, the man had a simply spectacular voice, and his presence at the games will be truly missed. May he rest in peace.

    The Tribune needs to understand that the Swordsmen play in division 48, so they’re bound to get some wins in that bargain basement. Didn’t think Fred and Aram were so easily duped.

    Judging from the unlikely way their last game unfolded, it’s possible the Patriots are also the first team to buy their own Super Bowl win too.
