    Somehow this thread has been making me think about going to the Venice High football game.
     
    They were my rivals!  What am I thinking???

      Does the Venice High Team do their training at Muscle Beach??

        So what if they were your rivals. There's nothing like a high school football game. The fun, the excitement, the pleasure of watching kids and parents cheer on their team. It's pure Americana.
         
        But what's wrong with going to your own high school's games?

          I live near Venice High.
           
          I could get shot near my high school.
           
          I used to work the games way back when as a Lettergirl.
          Those were the days!  I really might have to look in to this.  Much better than sitting at home.

            Muscle Beach.... hahahaha!
             
            No, but my brother swears my grandfather used to lift weights there when we were kids.  I think he's wrong.

              It is a fairly old memory now, but a friend, while his kid was a high school football star, took it upon himself to see that good food was served at the games. He took over the chairmanship of the committee (as he says, there was no competition for the job), and upgraded all the food. He raised prices a little, to cover the higher costs, but sold a lot more. He raised a lot of money.

                Sorry about your high school neighborhood. But do go to a high school game if you get the chance. You'll see some really good stuff about America.

                  This is a great  story.  My 12 year old granddaughter asked me  if she could borrow some money from me  as  she is going to the high school   football game tonight with friends.   I said   "Sure, how much do you want?"   and  she  said    that she really wanted  twenty dollars.............enough for the  admission  and  for the  whisker dog contest..
                   
                  So  I  said  that I would be glad to lend it to her  but what in the world was the  whisker dog  contest.   She  told me that  her  friends had  all decided to  see who could  eat the most  hot dogs  and then the winner would get treated next week. 
                   
                  I asked her why they called them  whisker dogs  and  she said that by the time they got them ,  they  had  been  cooked and  wrapped so long ago that  they  had  whiskers growing on them.   (Only  a group of  giggliing  12 year olds could  dream  this up)  She also assured me that she would win for sure!

                          Well he had mustard last week, I don't figure we are going to teach that old dog a new trick that makes him switch to ketchup

                            You have my permission to shoot that sawbuck my way. Not a drop of mustard despite having eaten four of those absolutely delicious, godawful hot dogs.

                              You must be joking. Or hallucinating. Catsup on a hot dog? Me? I'd sooner be dead.

                                Everyone has their price. You wouldn't do it to win a bet? Say, for $50??

                                  Absolutely not. Not for $50, not for $50,000. Catsup on a hot dog is an abomination.

                                    Hey Michael, I'm proud of you and I'm sure the people that sat next to you are also. I had my carpenter make 5 sawbucks last week, we only used 4, where do I ship it..................x

                                      Oh, no you don't. A sawbuck is a sawbuck, and a sawbuck in a bet isn't made of wood.

                                        Michael, Michael, Michael, I have my Mountain home in the Blue mountains of Oregon, there is a small town about 16 miles away and every one in that town will tell you a Sawbuck is a Sawbuck made out of wood. I would say the person offering the (Sawbuck as a bet) would have it be his purgative on what the Sawbuck would be. If a person is taking the bet, he should get a better definition of what the bet really is. I would say that "Mayor Al" should be the impartial judge in this matter. I would be happy to send Mayor Al a Cases of Pacific Northwest wine for his impartial decision...................(How can a whole town be wrong and Michael be right).....................BillyB

                                          I'll tell you what, sir, if you feel the need to take a purgative  to help you evacuate your bowels, that's fine. But a sawbuck is a dead founding father named Alexander Hamilton.

                                                  I've had beer spilled on me at a couple of ball games by people going for foul balls. It's a good thing I've never been to Shea Stadium or I'd be blaming you.  You weren't at the Polo Grounds, were you?

                                                    I live near Venice High.

                                                    I could get shot near my high school.

                                                    I used to work the games way back when as a Lettergirl.
                                                    Those were the days!  I really might have to look in to this.  Much better than sitting at home.

                                                     
                                                    Venice is really interesting. Not very many places where you can walk from a muti-million dollar house to a gang-infested area. And it's nothing new for that area. I do miss my favorite place there---La Grange Aux Crepes. It was delicious! Well, I'll have to at least try Baby Blues sometime.
                                                    High School games were fun though. I was in the marching band for all 3 years of high school. We never played Venice though, but our going to games at Van Nuys and playing Marshall and Poly could put us in dicey areas for the games.

                                                      Shea Stadium opened in 64, I would have been there about 68 or 69. The Mets were my Nephews team, I was a yankee man from birth. ....

                                                        Yankees? I knew there was something very unsavory about you.

                                                          EdSails, were you a Valley Boy?  I went to Hamilton.  I don't remember playing Valley Schools.
                                                           
                                                          Hamilton is actually adjacent to a couple very good neighborhoods but there have been some shootings in the last year.
                                                           
                                                          I wonder if I could get anyone to go to a game with me.  I'll have to bribe them with mediocre hot dogs!
                                                           
                                                          Edit because I went off on a tangent and never said what I meant to say.
                                                           
                                                          Was the crepe place on Rose near Lincoln?  That place was WONDERFUL!  Clams and garlic for me, please.
                                                           
                                                          As for Baby Blues I have mixed feelings.  Brisket should not be stringy stew.

                                                            EdSails, were you a Valley Boy?  I went to Hamilton.  I don't remember playing Valley Schools.

                                                            Well.....sorta. I went to Verdugo Hills in Tujunga, in the Valley League although we were not in the Valley as such. I do confess taking a summer school class at Grant once though, so I guess that makes me an "honorary valley boy".
                                                            I am trying to remember what street La Grange Aux Crepes was on. Larry Gelman, the owner, was a great guy who always made you feel like you were dining in his home. Rose sounds right though--I remember parking was horrific, but that's Venice.
                                                            Maybe I'll pass on Baby Blues. Too much other good BBQ around!
