Saturday afternoon’s Greenwich vs. Darien game (4 p.m. at Greenwich) is already one of the many, many anticipated games of Week 3, especially down Fairfield County way where it will be the main event.
It’s the No. 3-ranked Darien football team vs. John Marinelli’s new era Greenwich Cardinals.
These are two of the league’s best football programs. And now it’s time to see what Greenwich, which needed every bit of strength it could muster to beat Trinity Catholic, is made of against a fellow Class LL state title contender.
No hype necessary. Or needed.
Let’s pile some more hype on Saturday’s game, anyway, shall we?
Above is a video created by Greenwich High School senior Alex Dunn using the clips from MSG Varsity’s coverage of the Trinity/Greenwich game. It also includes a video of Marinelli’s first pregame speech to his troops before heading into battle and the comments from Darien’s players after their easy win over Stamford.
It’s fun. We like fun. So give it a watch.
We were present with MSG Varsity and WFSB-3 for Marinelli’s pregame speech, so we figured we’d share our version of it as well. You can watch it below.
So we’ll see everybody in Greenwich Saturday, yea?
Note: Because we were asked about it, the freeze at the end of our video was a result of my phone’s hard drive being completely used up. The audio you hear is the complete version, however.
