We Make History
The 2007 Highland Weekend - including
the Highland Social on The Lawn, The Highland Ball, The Highland Prayer
Gathering, The Highland Picnic and the Highland Bowl.
Photos from the Social and Ball may be seen
here but this particular page is
created for the purpose of bringing to mind fond remembrances of the Highland
Picnic and Highland Bowl as enjoyed by the Highland Clan of
We Make History on the beautiful
afternoon of August 19th, 2007 in Flagstaff, Arizona.
What is it about football?
Put a football in a man's hands and he is
ready to conquer, he is suddenly resilient enough that age, size, aches,
injuries - and even botched plays - are of no consequence. From hero to zero
and back to hero again, rushing, throwing, catching, intercepting and sacking -
it's all good.
And then there are the extra dimensions
provided by good friends, a blue sky, green grass ... and the wearing of
kilts. Was that a blitz? More like a Highland Charge!
The 2007 Highland Bowl was actually two
games, and in what has become a We Make History tradition defense generally
dominated over offense. In spite of this Tres "737" of Flagstaff managed to
lead his team to a 21 - 0 victory in game number one, a tighter game than the
score might suggest, for which he won MVP honours for the day. In game two all
quarterbacks were harassed by aggressive defenses but despite the pressure a
few brilliant offensive plays were made with the result being a very tight
final score of 9 - 7.
The Highland Bowl - to be continued...
Meanwhile enjoy these WMH sports moments!
Romans considered the Scots to be ferocious savages - so much so that Emperor
Hadrian had a high wall constructed across the Scottish border to keep them out.
There have been unconfirmed sightings which suggest
that some of these primitive, uncivilized Scots may live in the vicinity of
Prescott to this day.
