  • Emerald beats Abbeville through air
    The temperature was sweltering. The competition was brutal. And the players on both the Abbeville and Emerald sidelines had to be gassed.
    But as the Vikings were down 7-0 with about two minutes left until halftime, Emerald was on the Panthers’ 35-yard line. After throwing two consecutive incompletions, Isaiah Brown hit Justin Watson in the back of the end zone. The throw was the first of three for Brown, who led the Vikings to a 21-7 victory.

    It was written 200 years ago and later put to music. In 1931, it took an official place of honor in our nation. It is played and sung at nearly every major sporting event and Fourth of July celebrations. Few who sing it can do it justice and give it the honor and respect it deserves -- even today. Dare I remind readers of the horrid rendition performed some years back by comedian and actress Roseanne Barr? The list is long, but hers is one of the more memorable. Or one most of us would rather not remember at all. Read More...
