Marin Catholic Football Streaks over San Marin in the Rain

Marin County | California

Here’s a quick selection of photos from Saturday’s Marin Catholic game against visiting San Marin High School. MC won with a score of 40-0. Our local paper noted that the Wildcats’ defense extended its scoreless streak to 18 quarters. The Wildcats are in first place in the Marin County Athletic League, and will close the regular season against Drake and Justin-Siena, two teams I expect they’ll trounce.

It poured off and on during the game, although this isn’t evident from the photos. What is evident is that again I picked files where faces are featured. To me, this makes the whole enterprise more interesting.

The rest of my photos are at: http://varsitypix.photoshelter.com/gallery/MC-vs-San-Marin-Ron-Greene/G0000JYXFV4uv_N4/C0000zqL5LlKEU4k

VarsityPix is a great site for people interested in youth sports.

Now back to CNN and this dreadful election season, gratefully coming to an end soon.

Marin Catholic Swamps Novato High School

Marin County | California

Marin Catholic won Saturday by a score of 56-0. It would have been much higher if Marin Catholic hadn’t let up in the second half and if the coaches hadn’t agreed to a “running clock.”

Here’s a glimpse of the sidelines at Saturday’s game.

I don’t know these boys or what will become of them. I’m so unCatholic except for the social justice part. I wonder how many of the players are religious, and would they care if they knew I was a nonbeliever.

Last week I found myself wondering about Trump. This week I wondered about these young men and the Catholic religion. Do they really believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth? Do they really believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he’s certainly Divine? All my life I’ve marveled at how people could hold beliefs so different from mine. It seems an obvious fact of life, but still. Back to Trump.

Would I take better photos if I stayed in the moment? I don’t know.
