Gorch on the Porch: End the vendetta

Photo by Scott AllenMarquette's Emmery Joseph drives to the basket on Saturday night as Michigan City's Janicia Anderson tries to block the shot. This is the third straight year the Wolves and Blazers have faced off in girls basketball after a 13-year hiatus, while the boys haven't played in eight years.

Time for you to roll your eyes while sitting down for breakfast in the morning and opening the paper to The News-Dispatch sports section, and yelling to your significant other, “Hey, Gorches is ranting about Michigan City and Marquette boys basketball again!”

Yep, it’s that time of the year. I try to forget about the fact that the two high schools in Michigan City play each other in every single other sport in which both schools have a team (being a smaller Class A institution, Marquette doesn’t have teams in such sports as swimming, wrestling or track and field) except boys basketball.
