No football live blog tonight

First of all, I apologize. I really want to do the live blog tonight, but we just don’t have the manpower to make it work. The World Series has pulled a couple of our writers to Texas today (no complaint there, of course!), we’ve got some people on vacation and it all leads up to a very small staff putting together the newspaper tonight. So, the live blog will return next Friday. I apologize for the inconvenience.

We will have football scores posted later tonight to the blog, and we’ll have game reports from Rancho Cotate-Cardinal Newman and Santa Rosa-Montgomery. Saturday, we’ll have a game report from the Elsie Allen-Piner game and we’ll have some highlights and other items from Friday and Saturday’s games later this weekend. So keep checking back.
