Shoreline Insurance Week 2 Football: LSJ writers take their picks and get their lumps [VIDEO] (updated)

Maybe we can blame the weather.

After all, last weekend the temperatures were in the high 80s and everyone was in a summer mood. Who was thinking about football?

Apparently not Local Sports Journal writers Ron Rop, Dave Tomczak and myself, Jason Goorman, who combined to have a miserable week picking high school gridiron winners.

Rop and I turned in mediocre 9-9 records while Tomczak took the cellar with an 8-10 mark. Dave apparently did not read our high school football preview tab, which remains on sale in local Plumbs stores, by the way.

Perhaps the three of us deserved to have the records we had, considering our blatant lack of faith in Muskegon area football. Dave, Ron and I all picked Grand Rapids West Catholic over Oakridge. We hang our heads in traitorous shame.

Last week’s winner was Steve Gunn, who went 14-4 and outsmarted everyone by picking Kent City over Ravenna. Who would have guessed that outcome?

In any case, it’s cooler out now, which is more conducive to football thought. Plus we’ve all had a week to get a peek at who might be good and not-so-good this season. That should be enough to guarantee more accurate predictions from our team of supposed experts.

There are quite a few good matchups this weekend, starting with Oakridge at Montague in an early West Michigan Conference showdown. Who are you picking?

By the way, we’re offering a new feature to make this space more interesting. At the end you’ll find video footage of some of last week’s Mona Shores-Muskegon Catholic matchup.
Click and enjoy.
