My random thoughts as we enter the third weekend of August.
* If you’re eager to read how this year’s Davis High football team is doing in their games this season, then you can read the stories and view the photos on the company’s website at www.davisenterprise.com late Friday night, entering Saturday morning.
But if you’re going to wait for the Sunday print edition, it’s best to visit our website on seasonal weekends.
Earlier this summer, The Enterprise moved to an earlier deadline for the Sunday print edition on Fridays at 7 p.m. The previous deadline was later that evening.
The early deadline means that stories and photos from Blue Devil football matches will run in Wednesday’s print edition, which begins Wednesday, August 24.
All of the Blue Devil football games, home and away, that I will cover begin at 7 p.m., 7:15 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. Davis ends the regular season in a Delta League game at Jesuit, which plays all of their home games. in his stadium which has no stadium lights, on Saturday October 29 at 1 p.m.
* All stories and photos from UC Davis football team games, which will be played every Saturday this season, will continue to run on The Enterprise website late Saturday night through Sunday morning .
Writer Bob Dunning will have his gaming stories, along with photos, appearing in Wednesday’s editions, starting September 7.
The Aggies begin their season at Cal on Saturday, September 3.
After playing the South Dakota State Jackrabbits on Saturday September 10, UCD plays its first home game of the season at UC Davis Health Stadium against San Diego on Saturday September 17.
The Aggies will be running in their synthetic turf, which was replaced this summer, in the home opener.
*You’ll want to keep an eye out for the Davis High women’s field hockey team this summer and fall.
The Blue Devils enter this season on a 64-game winning streak in the Eastern Athletic League. Davis’ league enemies are the schools of Yuba City, Chico, Red Bluff, Lassen and Red Bluff.
Davis head coach Elizabeth Hogan, a 1995 DHS graduate, and her team play their first home game of the season against Pleasant Valley of Chico on Wednesday, September 7. This will be an EAL competition.
Henry Krueger, who interned at The Enterprise this summer, will get a preview of this year’s team in Sunday’s edition and online.
* The San Francisco Giants can still grab one of the National League playoff spots.
But time is running out for the Giants.
The Arizona Diamondbacks wrapped up their four-game series in the Bay Area on Thursday with a 5-0 win. This loss puts the Giants at 59-59 and remains in third place in the National League West.
The San Diego Padres are in second place at 66-54 and the Los Angeles Dodgers continue in first place with an 81-36 record.
San Francisco has 45 more games on its schedule, entering Friday’s three-game series against the Colorado Rockies. The Giants are six games out of second place behind the Padres.
The Giants and Padres will not pass the Dodgers. That was a painful sentence to type from this Giants fan. But the Dodgers do their job during the regular season.
The following sentences should help other Giants fans.
The Dodgers have won just one of their last three World Series trips since 2017.
Could Los Angeles participate in the World Series again this year? If so, bet against the American League team to win the trophy.
