Was something missing from Christmas last year? If opening gifts, eating too much and hugging family members isn't enough to fill your Dec. 25, take heart: The Blue-Gray All-Star Football Classic has returned after a one-year absence to enliven Christmas Day. The 65th edition of the game _ which features college seniors hoping to catch the eye of pro scouts _ is back with a new sponsor and a new home, Troy State's newly renovated Movie Gallery Stadium.
"I looked over at their sideline in the third quarter and they were lifeless, there was no emotion over there. I think at that point they threw the towel in. They weren't responding to what we were bringing them. Their coach, there was no expression on his face. The players, there was no expression on their faces. They were just standing there like a dead log."
