For some reason I love that commercial where the dog named Wego brings people beer when he's summoned.
You've probably seen it.
Somebody calls out “Here Wego” and the dog stops what he's doing and brings the summoner some beer.
As my favorite angst-ridden, underachieving, couch-dwelling teenagers Beavis and Butthead might say, “That would be cool.”
Anyway … The reason I bring this up is because the high school sports postseason is upon us, so “Here we go!”
The District 13-AAA softball and baseball tournaments will be held right here in Tipton County.
Munford is hosting the baseball tournament and it begins today with a pair games.
Fourth-seeded Brighton takes on fifth-seeded North Side in the opener at 4 p.m., followed by Munford, the third seed, against second seed Hardin County.

The tennis teams at Munford and Brighton have fared well and begin district tournament this week as well.
In soccer, Brighton and Munford play a do-or-die district tournament game Tuesday at Munford at 6 p.m.
It just might be the best time of year for high school sports fans. Over the next 10 days or so, there will be a game somewhere just about everyday.
So don't be like those sedentary teenagers Beavis and Butthead.
Get off the couch and catch some games!
