Seen here is the figurehead of the USCGC Eagle (WIX- 327) (ex SSS Horst Wessel), while it was visiting the city earlier in the month. Back in my days at Lincoln Junior High School, I loved playing in the school's flag football league. I got interested in it after having played some in gym class. The afternoon league games were in my backyard at Gulliver's Field, and that made it even better. After signups, a draft of players was held by the advisor, and the teams were set. Each team had a captain and 7 players. B. Martel was our team's captain. He was the quarterback, and I played halfback. As the season progress, we did quite well. We were unbeaten after 10 games. We ended the season tied with the Vikings for first place and played them in a Championship Game on a drizzly October afternoon. Final outcome? We got crushed! So how do I pull this altogether? Easy. Touchdown! We were the Eagles!
