    ESPN is doing a thing on E:60 for Ed Thomas and Parkersburg

    In Parkersburg, Iowa, the high school football team carries on the spirit of coach Ed Thomas - ESPN

    looks like its tonite.. its on the front page of espn.com

    this is not the article but just a piece i took out from the side

    On ESPN
    "E:60" will feature a story on Parkersburg and coach Ed Thomas on Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.

    Aplington-Parkersburg plays host to ****-New Hartford on Friday at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN's Old Spice High School Showcase game. Kevin Negandhi will host a pre-game show at 7 p.m. He will be joined by Rece Davis, Chris Spielman and Herm Edwards, who will call the game live on-site. The broadcast will include live interviews with family and friends of Coach Ed Thomas.

    The game can also be seen online Friday at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN360.com.


    ok on a side not is anyone else having troubles with the quotes or am i just an idiot


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    ESPN is doing a nice tribute. I will be watching.

    Is it me, but why does the censorer bleep out the first word in ****-New Hartford.

    I believe that it thinks it is a slur for a (how to put this politically correct) female with homosexual tendencies.... but isn't the slur spelled with a "y" not an "i"?



    Regardless, what a great article. I still find it hard to believe what Parkersburg has been through in the last two years. I was in town 10 minutes after the tornado went through and the destruction that it caused was surreal. The destruction that Ed Thomas' death caused is equally surreal. Yet in both cases, little old Parkersburg seems to have the resolve to get up and keep going. This season will be every bit as hard as last season. If they don't have something to play for this year, I don't know if anyone ever will. I'll be watching both the E:60 and the game this Friday on ESPN.
