"The nightmare of 9/11 will live forever in our minds and memories."...Yes, this is how a high school football game story begins.

From the Sun Prairie (Wisc.) Star:

The nightmare of 9/11 will live forever in our minds and memories.

Fast forward eight years later and last Friday, Sept. 11 is a night the Sun Prairie High School football team, coaching staff and Cardinal fans hope can soon be forgotten. Dealt a 22-0 halftime deficit by Madison Memorial in a Big Eight Conference football game at Ashley Field, the Cardinals made an inspiring comeback in the second half but never fully recovered, falling to the Spartans, 22-14.


Well played, Karl Raymond. And I'd be remiss if I didn't also bring your attention to the first comment on the story:

As a Madison Memorial fan, I am so grateful to have something to celebrate on 9/11. This win will forever eclipse the events of 9/11/01 in this fan's mind. Thanks for a great story.
