      Another successful Grove Bowl

      THE GODFREY SHOW – Late in the third quarter of Saturday’s Grove Bowl the realization hit that spring football in the South must be similar to the crackling atmosphere of a ACC tilt between Maryland and NC State in late October: About 25,000 disinterested fans and families lounging in a cavernous, fairly empty football stadium under blue skies and no humidity.

            OPINION – Who would ever have imagined that the annual Red-Blue spring football game, known as the Grove Bowl, would be scheduled on the same Saturday as the popular Double Decker Arts Festival? It has happened this year, however, and local businesses and merchants will have one less “big weekend” in the spring. (January 11, 2010, Page 4)
