May 13, 2009

Are you looking for a way to connect with an old friend? How ’bout that hottie at work who you are just too shy to approach in non-virtual reality?  Do you suffer from social networking anxiety, phobia, or even *gasp* total ignorance?? Hyper real

Jefferson overtakes Madison!

December 9, 2008

http://www.flickr.com/photos/pkeleher/Welcome back to all! After an extended Thanksgiving break, the Jeffersonia Blog has returned!

As we near the end of the season in Founding Fathers Football, there is some exciting news. Thomas Jefferson has overtaken Madison and finally cracks the Top 50! West Monroe now takes over first place with a commanding lead, followed by Hamilton. TJ is in third place, while Madison slips all the way back to 4th. Independence rounds out the Top 5.

In the Christian version of FFF, St. Thomas Aquinas, currently ranked first in the Nation, leads the way, followed closely by St. Ignatius.  St. Bonaventure is a distant third, with Trinity (of KY) and Godby (of FL) rounding out the Top 5.

Madison (Skyline) Drives ahead of Monroe

November 18, 2008

Yes! Another clever title! Its down to the wire as Madison High uses Skyline as a buffer to pad its slim lead over Monroe. Hamilton remains in the hunt in 3rd place. Thomas Jefferson, Columbus and Independence all remain unchanged from last week, despite having only one loss between them.

Madison Cracks Top 30

October 28, 2008

We’ve been playing Founding Fathers Football (ok, I just made that up) all season long by following HighschoolRivals Top 100 teams. As the regular season comes to a close for most teams, Madison claws its way further into the Top 30, with an undefeated 6-0 record. West Monroe climbs to number 30, also undefeated at 7-0. Hamilton, who had the weekend off, climb two spots to 33.

Despite crushing West Mifflin 42-7, TJ of Jefferson Hills, PA drops 3 spots to 54th this week. Independence of Charlotte, NC jumps forward to number 81 and Columbus of Miami is riding TJ’s wake at number 54.

For the Civil War version of Founding Fathers Football, Union is at 34 and Grant of Sacramento splits the south at 74.

Finally, the two Trinitys (at numbers 1 and 75) look like they will stand alone without a third for the season.

Madison, Hamilton ahead of Jefferson

October 16, 2008

We’ve been keeping up with HighschoolRivals.com Top 100 football teams in the U.S. this season – not for historical or educational purposes, but simply because several of the teams are named after (or have the same last names as) a couple of the Founding Fathers, including TJ himself (which falls under the category of ‘TJ-related’ as well as fun!).

This week Madison County of Flo-rida holds strong in 34th place. Hamilton of AZ is number 40, while Thomas Jefferson (in PA) hovers just outside the Top 50 in 52nd place. Undefeated Independence is 83rd, while the two Trinitys (in 1st and 78th place, respectively) still seek that elusive third.

A special shoutout to Columbus (of Miami, FL) in honor of Monday’s greatest single day surge in the history of the U.S. stock market (on Columbus Day, no less).
