Time for FaceOFF.

Keith:

South Hardin High School won't field a varsity football team this fall.

Despite being class 2A, only 8 junior and senior boys showed interest in playing.

I feel for those eight.

Andy:

I do, too.  It's apparently too late for them to play for other schools, too, so it's really a bummer.  Usually it's population that dooms small Iowa schools, but as you said, this is a 2A school that just didn't have enough boys interested in football.

Keith:

Brett Moffitt of Grimes is not the man he used to be. The young NASCAR star lost 50 pounds since January!

Andy:

I didn't recognize him at all when he walked into the radio studio the other day. That's great for his health, but it's gotta be even better for his race car, right? It's like he just tossed a giant sack of feed out the window!

Keith:

Perfect weather for state track.

Make you feel better or worse about the Drake Relays??

Andy:

Much, much worse, man.  The officials at drake are like "where was this stuff when we had 20,000 people in town last month?

Keith:

The Wall Street Journal had an article calling for the demolition of Wrigley Field.

What a boneheaded suggestion. The cubs need to renovate, not annihilate.

Andy:

Well, nobody knows sports like the Wall Street Journal...  Wrigley Field is the draw, not the team that plays there.  Even Cardinals fans would hate to see that.

Keith:

There's a new restaurant in West Des Moines, and it turns out, "Twins Peaks" is not an homage to the weird television show.

Andy:

That's right, it's about hiking and climbing.
