Rolling With Brooklyn's Big Dogs !
Saturday's weather was perfect for fall-ball and most game stands were full
of fans cheering for their favorite team. While you can sure that other
boroughs are well represented and have a few "Big Dog" teams of their
own, Brooklyn usually produces a few top dogs of it's own. As for the day's
excitement, even the Doberman Pincher in the graphic to the left seemed to
be playing close attention to what was going on.since he was dressed in
Jefferson's colors there was no doubt about who he was cheering for!
Two Brooklyn teams who went at it early Saturday morning were South
Shore & Tilden. The game was one where teams battled to best each
other. There were more than a few moments of intense action. Not too far
away music could be heard as you approached the Jefferson / Grady
game. Jefferson, being one of several teams who were celebrating their
homecoming, pulled out all the stops.
Festivities included the traditional homecoming king and queen, DJ, and stands
packed full of supporters.In another Brooklyn borough match up New Utrecht hosted
Fort Hamilton before a crowd standing three deep along the fences. While the
Tigers bested the Utes there were plenty of nail biting moments when Utrecht played
Ft Hamilton tough. In fact when we covered them earlier in the year we could see they
were a hard hitting team with a solid grasp on the fundamentals. Talented athletes not
to be taken lightly. But the gridiron festivities didn't end there.
As if saving the best for last, Boys High hosted the match up with Grand Street Campus later than the traditional noon time start. Here too, you could hear the music spilling out
of the stadium as you approached because they were also celebrating their homecoming . DJ Chocolatte worked the crowd with tunes to accompany all of the cheering that
went on. When the DJ wasn't entertaining keeping the crowd on it's feet The Brooklyn Steppers Marching Band gave onlookers plenty to look at, Grand Street is also a hard
nosed club and battled the Boyz tough but neither team had scored as they entered the locker room for the half time break. The second half saw more great play but The
Kangaroos took the win home in the end! Game Shots Have Been Posted
