Dozer The Pig Pigskin Picks


Hey, everybody, it’s me, Dozer the pig!  Ok, so last week after the Chelsea loss I was so upset and bothered by it I couldn’t even eat. I had no appetite whatsoever. Worst 5 minutes of my life!

I do not like to see the Bulldogs lose ever in any sport! But it happens but I still don’t like it. The worst is when they got to the state championship game in football & they got robbed! Lousy little blind ref! Call the hold you pipsqueak zebra! I’m still fuming over that. Hey, us pigs, we never forget! Especially when it’s dinner time. Which for me is all the time.

Anyway, let’s put that stinking Lincoln loss behind us and move forward. This week we hit the road and go take on the Tecumseh Indians. They are 2-1 on the year and are playing decent football. They beat Lincoln by 1. But that doesn’t mean anything. Heck John Wilkes Booth beat Lincoln by 1 once. What, too soon?

Anywho the Redskins, I mean Injuns, I mean Scalpers, I mean Indians are looking good. They are coming off an 11-7 win over Adrian. That sounds like a baseball score against the Detroit Mud Hens, I mean Tigers pitching. But after last week’s defeat, I know Head Coach Bush was not happy. So he will get his team on the right track.

I know he wasn’t happy because I called him. Here’s what he told me: “How did you get my number? Don’t ever call here again.” And as he hung up I heard him say,” How the heck does a pig use a phone anyway?” I’m sure he wasn’t annoyed I called, it was because he was busy working on a game plan and not the fact it was 3 in the morning,

Last weeks game had some bad moments in it. Missed tackles, dropped passes, division in the ranks. Everyone pointing fingers, blaming others. Look! You win as a team, you lose as a team. You go out there and do your job and you do it right, you do it well. Don’t worry about how it looks on hudl, wrap the guy up, you bring him down.  Thomas gets you the ball, it hits your hands, you catch it, don’t worry about getting hit, that’s the game. And if you got a problem with the coaches then quit! And same goes for parents, think you can outcoach them, man up and do it! Go coach somewhere. Obviously, you can tell I was mad about all the negative things being said after the game. My barnyard isn’t that far away, I hear everything!

You’re Bulldogs! Time to regroup. The season is already a third of the way done but there’s plenty of football left to play. We can still win the Conference. And go all the way. You all need to believe and achieve. Be a team. There’s no i in team unless you spell it wrong like stupid Spike the pig from Dexter would!

So I’ll be watching the game with my goat buddies Chester, Salina, and Chelsea. We have a very hi-tech entertainment system in the barn. We may be animals but we have style. Oh, no horses allowed. I can’t stand horses!

I got the Bulldogs bouncing back this week and stepping up all areas of the game and winning big. Go Bulldogs! Now I have to go, my human family just got Thompson’s pizza and I’m about to take advantage of that. I hope there’s no pork on it this time!

Dozer’s Pigskin Picks


We are pleased to announce a new weekly feature on our website. It is called Dozer’s Pigskin Picks. Who is Dozer you ask? Well, Dozer is a pig. Not just any pig but the worlds smartest pig. And he can talk!

Dozer lives in Chelsea and he is a proud Bulldog and loves the Chelsea community. And he really loves Chelsea sports. Especially football. He has very strong ties to Chelsea football going back several generations as his great, great, great, grandpa took part in Chelsea High Schools very first game. As the original Chelsea pigskin.

“I’m very proud of that,” Dozer snorted. “A rich tradition was born that day and I’m glad my family was a part of it.”

Dozer knows sports. And loves Chelsea football almost as much as he does eating. And Dozer understands the rivalries too, as he cannot stand Dexter!

“The other pig that lives in my barnyard went to Dexter,” Dozer growls. “his name is Spike and he’s dumb as a brick and nobody likes him. Hmmph, Dexter!”

So without further ado here’s Dozer for his prediction and thoughts on the upcoming home game this Friday against Ypsilanti Lincoln.

“Hey everybody I’m Dozer the pig and I want to talk Chelsea Bulldog football. I just found out Chelsea won the voting so we will be the Mlive game of the week in our area. That’s cool, that’s cool. I voted quite a bit. I hope you all did too. So this weeks game is against Lincoln. Lincoln, what has he done since he freed the slaves.

What? Oh, my bad, I’ve been informed that it’s not Abe Lincoln, who is dead, but Lincoln High out of Ypsilanti. Pshh, Railsplitters. I bet they don’t even really have a clue where that name came from. Anywho Lincoln has given up an average of 32 points a game in their 2 losses this year. But they’ve racked up an average of 27 points per game in those losses. But they haven’t faced a defense like Chelsea’s.

Those boys up front are big! I haven’t seen that much beef since I visited my friends in the cattle barn at the fair. Oh, the Chelsea fair. Cotton candy, caramel corn, everything on a stick, everything deep fried, mmmmmmmm!

What? Oh whoops got sidetracked there for a minute. Chelsea is strong up front and has a lot of depth. They shut down a very good Pinckney team last week only giving up one touchdown on their first drive. My homey Ronnie Buford had 3 sacks, 8 tackles, and 2 of them for loss. Braden Steele, Garrett Steele, Doug Zarinnia, and Patrick Bertoni did great in the defensive backfield. And Owen Nikischer has been a beast at Middle linebacker. Owens crazy. He’ll hold the door open for a little old lady then smash it on some Dreadnaught kid. Heh Heh, I love that Owen!

The defense will have to be strong as they face the speedy senior quarterback Cam Thompson who is a dual threat.  He can run and throw and is their most explosive weapon. Other big players on their team are running back Derrick Thomason and wide receiver Matthew Moorer. Moorer, a 2017 track and field state champion in the 400-meter dash, will be an explosive threat for Thompson in the passing game. Chelsea is going to have to be aware of him at all times and lock him down. They also can’t let Thompson get loose and have to lock him up fast and make him throw bad passes with lots of pressure.

The Chelsea offense struggled a bit last week but Head Coach Brad Bush is going to fix that. I know he worked with those kids all week because there’s way too much talent on that team to not rack up a lot of points. They’re big up front & they got speed.

I have to say, this is going to be a very exciting game but I’m all in for the Bulldogs! Go dawgs!!!! I’ll be watching it online while pigging out on pizza. Yeah pigging out is an offensive term but not for me, we pigs can say it!
