James (second from the right in back) actually ran for a touchdown. As a defensive back, he got beat on a couple of plays ("Don't let that man get behind you, boy!"), but also made some key tackles including three QB sacks in a row on the blitz. Did old No. 27 proud.
The general sloppiness of So Icy Boys on defense -- no way they should have given up four touchdowns to Bebot -- was frustrating. In the end, however, victory is the balm that heals all wounds.
Next Sunday, Brick Squad meets So Icy Boys, putting paternal loyalty in neutral. But I'm sure both teams will be fired up for . . . The McCain Bowl?
