Ah it's that time again - my favorite week of the year - the week of my favorite Holiday - THANKSGIVING -. Don't ask me why, but I have always loved Thanksgiving - the days leading up to it and the weekend days after it.
It's a time to give thanks for all that we have - I love it because I host it - and my family comes and we feast together. I love it because of all the great food that is served at this 1 meal - from soup to dessert.
I love it because of High School Football - the end of the regular season - and the revealing of all the Playoff matchups for the CIAC State Tournament.
21 teams have clinched Playoff berths - only 11 remain.
The following teams have clinched Playoff Spots:
Class LL(6) Shelton, Darien, Southington, Newtown, Greenwich, New Britain
Class L (4) Naugatuck, Hand, Middletown, Maloney
Class M (5) St. Joseph, Sheehan, Berlin, Killingly, Cheney Tech
Class S (6) Bullard Havens, Ansonia, Stafford/East Windsor/Somers, Cromwell/Portland, Bloomfield, Woodland
24 teams are still alive for the final 11 Spots
