Mountaineers Vs Flivvers

October 5, 2010 - Theresa Proudfit
I love football. It is one of my favorite sports to shoot (tied with ski jumping). My favorite season is fall. Not just because it my birthday month but because I love jean and sweatshirt weather, I love the fall colors and I LOVE The Iron Mountain Kingsford Football game!! Being an Iron Mountain graduate living in Kingsford I am often cheering for both teams (I also have a soft spot the Forest Park Trojans and the North Dickinson Nordics). When I'm shooting a Kingsford game I'm a Flivver Fan. When I'm shooting an Iron Mountain game I'm a Mountaineer Fan. But During the Iron Mountain Kingsford game I am a Mountaineer! M..OU..NTIAN...EE.RS..OH YES UH HUH WE ARE THE BEST! Sorry for the impromptu cheer, but it's true. Burt said that the Mountaineers are leading in wins over the Flivvers 43 to 39 with 3 ties. So The Flivvers would have to win the next five years in a row to get ahead. I'm just saying. Does it scare me a little that the Flivvers are undefeated coming into this game? Heck yeah it does. I've seen those boys close up. They are tough. I've also seen the Mountaineers from the sideline. Also very tough, but if you've been to a few rival games you know that whoever wants it the most will get it. It doesn't matter who has the best record. My prediction is the Mountaineers are going to disrupt the Flivvers winning streak. Since we already have one loss that will make us even. Then I hope both teams win the rest of their games and I can travel with them to the Silverdome this Thanksgiving weekend. Go Flivvers.....Go Mountaineers... Go-ing to get my Mountaineer Sweatshirt.
