Talk about your odd couples.
On Wednesday at the Aqua Turf, a couple of hours before the state championship luncheon, I (of the New Haven Register and GameTimeCT) had the honor of getting to together with WFSB’s Joe Zone and two of the state’s best columnists, The Day of New London’s Mike DiMauro and The Hartford Courant’s Jeff Jacobs for a special hour edition of their show, Beyond the Beat, Outside the Press Box.
Among the many, many topics we rapped about:
Ansonia and its No. 1 prospects against the likes of New Canaan, Arkeel Newsome, Dario Highsmith the Gatorade State Player of the Year debate, the New Canaan-Darien state champions field debate (now resolved, and yes, moved to Boyle Stadium thanks to the weather), and a run down of all the state championship games. We even talked a little UConn and baseball.
It’s a little late now that one final is finished and the other three will shortly follow, but it was a ton of fun to debate with these fine gentlemen.
