Thursday lines: Looking LIVE

Today's edition of "Thursday lines" originates from the press box at Jordan-Hare Stadium, where the Leeds Green Wave just took a 7-6 lead over Hamilton in the AHSAA 3A championship game. I have my doubts Hamilton can seriously challenge them ... unless they fumble a lot (a fumble set up Hamilton's first score) and commit tons of penalties (they just got popped for a personal foul that will give Hamilton the ball at midfield). But it's been fun so far.
(Note: Here's where you think I'm going to take some kind of dig at Auburn for making everyone park in Tuskegee and bus back to the stadium, or because the coffee they provided was cold and tasted sort of like poison. But, see, I'm not. So there.)
(Note: In the time it took to write this, Auburn commit Jonathan Rose ran an interception back for a touchdown. Feel free to free-associate about the poetry in a kid who's going to Auburn next year dominating on his future home field. Leeds 14, Hamilton 6.)
Anyway, this week's lines come to you courtesy of As always, feel free to discuss these here or by finding me on Twitter.
