Hoople predicts tricks for South, Clintwood, treats for D-B, North

Major Amos Hoople • Oct 29, 2009 at 12:00 AM


The Hoople System has combined forces with the Holler-ween Society to give this week’s high school football predictions a special touch.

Chilling tales of manifestations of vampires are running rampant and the consequences of certain individuals’ actions could be horrific.

The local sports scene smacks of evil. Mired in a state of hysteria, it is a destabilized situation because of these few misguided characters.

Game losses will not be met with joy. Danger will even threaten game winners when they are on the verge of victory.

Hoop-Baby’s advice is to stay away from the panic button. Our list of predictions should foreshadow a night of terror.

Avoid bizarre rituals, beware of uninvited guests, don’t take your eye off the ball, focus on friendly faces and stay away from living monsters. Boola-boola!

Halloween is so much a part of human culture that there are those who expect it to become a national holiday soon.

Witches, goblins, gremlins, mummies, ghouls and ghosts do pose frightening experiences for some. But these jokers can be short-circuited by folks who maintain their composure.

Just follow your instincts and remember Hoop-the-Scoop’s words of comfort.

A large number of Northeast Tennessee schools dodged the wrath of Famous Amos by playing their games on Thursday. They’ll pay the price next season. Um-glumph!

It’s time to move past Pumpkin Junction and take a look at the advance scoreboard.

TENNESSEE HIGH 34, SULLIVAN SOUTH 20 — The Vikings should pay no attention to South’s scare tactics.

DOBYNS-BENNETT 42, VOLUNTEER 7 — Torture is a high art. This could be a horror show.

SULLIVAN NORTH 21, UNICOI COUNTY 15 — The Raiders will survive a fourth-quarter comeback that makes everybody’s hair stand up.

DAVID CROCKETT 15, DANIEL BOONE 14 — The Trailblazers’ wagon train is coming to a screeching halt. Davy Crockett will be king of the Washington County frontier. Heh-heh!

CHEROKEE 28, COCKE COUNTY 7 — Newport can be a haunting experience for visiting teams but Cherokee will accept Cocke County’s antics as frightening fun.

GATE CITY 27, LEE HIGH 7 — Boo! The Blue Devils, ready to be demons of the night, have their pitch forks sharpened and aimed at Lee. Old pal Chuck Newton has Gate City winning by 40. Har-rumph!

ST. PAUL 14, RYE COVE 6 — The Saints have the perfect name for Fright Night. Rye Cove isn’t regarded as a threat to their well being.

J.I. BURTON 28, CLINTWOOD 27 — Be prepared for plenty of chills, thrills and spills.

APPALACHIA 14, J.J. KELLY 13 — There are spooks and there are spoofs. Therefore, Kelly ought to be on the lookout for the invisible.

POWELL VALLEY 36, POUND 13 — Phil Robbins will lead, the Vikings will follow and Pound better get out of the way. Kaff-kaff!

THOMAS WALKER 20, TWIN SPRINGS 14 — Heads up, Tommy Walker! The Titans are already trying to creep up on you.
