TitleTown Blues

Area gets caught up in TitleTown USA mania and gets let down.

So Valdosta Geogia is "TitleTown USA" .  And Parkersburg's hope for national glory is dashed.

At this point I can give you the "It's just an honor to be a finalist" speech....which it really is.  But so many people invested so much emotional capital in the contest so that pep talk won't cut it.

Not to sound like sour grapes.  But in reality, five years from now, nobody outside of Georgia will remember that Valdosta is "TitleTown USA".   But whoever was at Stadium Field on July 18th, or  watched or read the local coverage, will always remember that Parkersburg was TitleTown USA ...at least for  one day.

Parkersburg is passionate about sports and  the Patriots, Big Reds and Crusaders...and we've got the emails and phone calls to prove it.    So we don't need an official declaration to remind us of our winning tradition.

The Cable Ace Awards, the ESPY's, and TitleTown USA will come and go, but Parkersburg will endure.
