THE WALSH COUNTY PREss WEDNESDAY,AUGUST 30, 2017 | Page7 By Kevin Skavhaug A bit of a throwback I had to take a double take Sunday night when flipping through the channels I noticed something of a throwback and I like throwbacks. Retro's the thing now you know. As I noticed the San Diego Chargers, oops, now the Los Angeles Chargers playing the Los Angeles Rams some- thing looked different. The Rams helmets were old school. Gone are the gold ram stripes and in their place white ones like they had back in the 70's. Back to the days of Deacon Jones, Merlin O1- son and Roman Gabriel. Not that I was much of a Rams fan but they were a pretty good old NFL team. So my interest was peaked and watched them for a series or two until their number one draft pick Jarod Goff threw yet another interception. Goff of course was the guy draft- ed number one a year ago, one spot ahead of North Dakota's Carson Wentz. I wonder if they wished they would have gone the other way. I think one day they will realize they missed their chance a quarterback who can be a solid NFL player: Later that night I' even tuned in to watch the end of the Vikings and 49er's and to be honest, I was very im- pressed with the quarterback the Vikings had on the field who orchestrated a two minute game winning drive. From what I saw, I think he just made the team. I am waiting anxiously for the start of the regular sea- son mostly to watch Wentz in action in year two. I think the Eagles made some good moves in the offseason and will be more of a threat with- in the division this year. I hope so. There's not much more in the NFL to peak my interest other than seeing a North Dakota kid play on t.v. each week. And in a way, he's a throwback of sorts too. Seems like he's got things in per- spective and not only plays well but represents himself on and off the field the way it should be. Not like that Kaepemick guy or the hand- ful of other NFL players who won't respect our nation. In any case, if you're a football fan, have a great NFL season.
