Shoot Twenty - WB Football

Warsaw - I inadvertently left Carol off the Cairo list last week. Mea culpa. . . As for the Warsaw Connection - Michelle, Elaine, Mike, Jim, Carol, and Milt.

"West Bridgewater Football"

After two years of playing its home games away - the West Bridgewater Wildcats finally got to enjoy a "home" game at home! I made an effort to be there for this special occasion. I was also interested in seeing if there would be any issues with the field's location. You see, one of the sidelines borders busy Route 106! I was wondering about balls kicked into the street and the possible damage they could do to unsuspecting motorists. Happy to report this situation never arose.

But I did have some options: 
no kicking off but instead passing it off
no punting so you need to go for it on 4th down
build a dome over it 
*** (most of those attending likes option 3).

Where in the World?

Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting? 

is the second largest city in its country.

the name of this city has been changed twice.

was also called the ‘Venice of North’ (yes, another one claiming that title).
the most important attraction in the city is Winter Palace or the Hermitage Museum. The Winter Palace is a huge complex, also comprising of the Museum. The exhibits featured in the Museum number over 3,000,000 and have been sourced from nearly all over the world. The only way you can do justice to this enormous Museum is by taking a guided tour.

The Peter and Paul Fortress is also a famous place to visit. Although called a fortress, it is actually the final resting ground of most leaders of the past.

the Alexander Nevsky Monastery is named after and dedicated to the spiritual protector of the city. The monastery includes several other places to see, such as the Trinity Cathedral and Church of Annunciation.

Church of the Savior on the Blood is said to be the most beautiful church in the city. Built of beautiful mosaic and stonework.
