I am enjoying the rebroadcast of the Westview girls 1996 championship game. I was pastor at Bradford at that time. I remember that Bradford girls, Westview girls, and Jackson Central Merry girls won their respective classes State Championships that year. I called it the West Tennessee Highway 45 Championship Year!

For future reference: When asked by a fan why Perry Mason won every case, Burr told her, "But madam, you see only the cases I try on Saturday." Mason is known to have lost, in some form or manner, three cases—"The Case of the Terrified Typist", "The Case of the Witless Witness", and "The Case of the Deadly Verdict".🤔
