Me and My Rowdy Friends…Bear Style!
That title grabbed you didn’t it? Well, as usual it may not be what you think. Here’s what it is…
As many of you know I am a proud grad of New Bern High School (Class of 1989) and tonight my alma mater plays in the Class 4-A state championship football game against Charlotte Catholic. Gametime is 7:30 p.m. at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem and I expect to see hundreds of rowdy (but in a good way) and excited fans supporting our hometown team as they look to complete the perfect season with a state title. For those who are unable to be there, if you have Time Warner Cable television you can watch the game on tv. And for those who do not have Time Warner Cable you can listen to the game on ESPN 1490 Radio New Bern via streaming live or call 252-288-3022 and listen via telephone.
Sure it will be a bit nippy out and it is a bit of a drive from New Bern to Winston-Salem but I hope many are able to make the trip. For those of you who are traveling please be safe and come prepared for the weather and the excitement. New Bern travels well and I have been blessed to have been at the last two state title games when New Bern won in 2007 and 2012. Best wishes to our Bears and for the fans let’s make it loud and proud: Go Bears!
