Usually in football, it's the players sacrificing their bodies, for the fans.
But in Galena we saw a role reversal as fans bundled up in coats and hats to support the team.
Just about everything except for the goal posts were flying around the field during Galena's game against crosstown rival Bishop Manogue.
A night that was supposed to be filled with good times and touchdowns was instead dominated by flying boxes; nasty winds; and occasionally heavy rains.
Fans of both schools say the wild winds are an accepted part of the athletic tradition in the area; and over the years, they've learned to expect the worst.
