For a moment Friday night, I relaxed my vocal chords and thought This is happening. I won't have to sing.
I made a bet with Frankfort Patch editor Joe Vince last week, . It was pretty simple: If your town's team lost the game, you would sing the winner's fight song somewhere public in your town.
And when Central was down 19-0 in the first half Friday night, my mind drifted to what I'd wear on camera. Then the Knights scored 18 unanswered points to pull within one, and I had a glimmer of hope.
In the end, , and I had to hold up my end of the bargain, unfortunately delivering a gem that could be a track on William Hung's next album.
But hey, the Knights put up a good fight, assuring me that if I enter into any more friendly bets, the result might not always be an unfriendly version of the fight song.
