A Gift Without Offense…

My friend, Kelly, is always incredibly busy.  However, I know she really enjoys taking time for herself to go to the gym for an exercise class or to go tanning before a vacation so she doesn’t burn to a crisp.  Sometimes going-to-the-gym takes a good excuse to get motivated again. Everybody is busy these days preparing for the holidays, taking care of the house, family, work, pets… so a little inspiration to take care of yourself can really go a long way. Naturally, I chose to pick out her gift this year at The Club Fitness and Tanning.

Comstock Park nips Sparta

COMSTOCK PARK (WZZM) -- With a win over the Sparta Spartans Friday, the Comstock Park Panthers would clinch their first playoff berth since 2005.

Some highlights: The Panthers lead 13-7 in the third quarter when Jake Brown fumbled the shotgun snap.  He recovered though, unloading it deep to Andrew Edgemont who hailed it in behind his defender for the 45-yard score bringing Comstock Park's lead to 19-7.

Sparta bounced back though with a touchdown by Kory Brown.  That narrowed the lead to 19-14.

In the end Comstock Park was able to hold on and beat Sparta 19-14.  The Panthers are playoff bound.
