Last week, on Monday, I had a photo shoot with “Big Red” to take pictures for marketing Intramural Sports and the Regional Tournament. This experience was needless to say, but I will say it anyway, interesting… the guy who I was suppose to meet (Big Red) came into the intramural office, introduced himself, and asked where he could change so he could get ready. Once he was dressed as Big Red, he WAS BIG RED. I’m not sure if everyone knows or not but, Big Red is played by a person, I hope I’m not ruining this for anyone… Anyway, so he is in costume now and is hyped with school spirit to the max. He is running around the office dishing out high fives and being the usual Big Red we all know and love.

Once we got him out of the Preston Center so we could take pictures I asked him if it was ok if we do some different poses and different things for pictures. He replied with, “… (a belly shake and two thumbs up)…” Even though he was Big Red in costume I thought he would still talk, or communicate verbally, when one on one. That is incorrect, Big Red, is ALWAYS in character. The Executive Producer & Director of WKYU-PBS said Big Red is always in character, “imagine doing a commercial with him.” My experience with Big Red was unforgettable and I got some good pictures that will be featured on the plaques for the winners of the Battle of the Bluegrass flag football tournament. This regional tournament is this weekend, Nov. 19-21, games start on Friday night and championship games will take place on Sunday. If you don’t make it out to the complex you will still have an opportunity to keep up with latest scores and stories at the live action blog…

What would you say if there was a flag football team averaging 75.5 points a game? What would you say about a team that scored 93 points in a single game? Well… Whatever your answer is, report it to Lambda Chi’s A team. They scored 58 points in their first game against SAE White, and put up 93 points against the KA Billy Goats. These brutal victories are being led by Lambda Chi’s quarterback, Chris Singleton. He can throw deep bombs and is able to avoid the rush and turn it up field for positive yards on the carry. The highly favored Lambda Chi’s have the  quickness and ability to dodge tackles (a.k.a. flag pulls) without penalties and if another fraternity team can’t stop their offense then Lambda Chi will soon be Champions. If you are interested in this high scoring fraternity you can check them out @ 8:00 PM on Sundays.

When the WKU Flag Football Season has ended and the division champions have been crowned, will any of these teams test their skills at a Regional Tournament? For those of you who don’t know, a Regional Tournament is a tournament that consists of many teams from around the country. All of these teams are looking to be a REGIONAL CHAMPION, because when you win this championship you win a stipend trip to the National Championship. Last year’s National Championship took place a day or two before New Year’s in New Orleans. So the question is… How good are the teams who win our WKU divisions? Do they have what it takes to compete in a Regional Tournament? The Battle of the Bluegrass which is here in Bowling Green is being held the weekend of Nov. 19. For more information: click here. There are also tournaments in Florida, Ohio, Mississippi, and many other states. If you have any interest in any regional tournament contact: Brandon MacCallum (270) 745-6060.
