    Opening-HO

    At 12:45 Saturday afternoon, Nelson County fans started showing up at
    Amherst High School to watch the boy’s basketball team compete in the
    state’s quarterfinals. The game was Nelson versus Chesterfield. The
    gym’s bleachers were overflowing with Nelson County fans who were
    decked out in green and gold. Yellow pompons waving back and forth,
    painted faces, green Mardi Gras beads, and homemade signs asking “Who
    you wit.” Nelson fans were stomping, chanting, yelling
    and…..screaming! There was not a calm nerve in the room. Even the
    Nelson County High School faculty was there, (some were even dressed
    up). The pep band played as the cheerleaders, parents, friends and
    avid nelson fans cheered the Governors on. Play by play. By 3:45 the
    Nelson Governors won the game 66 to 61.

    “The Governors, who were out sized by Chesterfield, were able to rely
    on their quickness and their precise outside shooting to carry them to
    a victory in the state quarter final and to move on the VCU on
    Wednesday to the State’s semi-finals,” said one of the Nelson fans there Saturday night.

    I learned many NEW things about basketball this afternoon.
    One-quickness and precision can win a game, two- root for the home
    team when your on the home turf otherwise disguise yourself in their
    colors and keep to yourself, and lastly…. if you are a referee—–
    rent a bodyguard!
