There’s Always This Year

What a year! The bar was set higher than I think it ever has been after 2015’s NLCS run, and they certainly delivered. Watching this team accomplish something that had alluded the club for 108 years was exciting. At a party the other night, someone asked me if I would be satisfied if the Cubs […]

Farewell Air Raid

Watching the TicketCity Bowl and remembering the reports from last week regarding Tommy Tuberville stating Tech will be running more next year, I got to thinking.. Is that really a bad thing?

Mike Leach and Texas Tech

The local school districts cancelled school. Many daycares did not open. Where did some first responders go on Friday? Texas Tech Athletics is grateful for the support of the […]

A Sign of Things to Come?

Anyone who truly knows me knows that I am a diehard Chicago Cubs fan. I am not one of these fly-by-night, jump-on-the-Cubs-bandwagon since they’re doing good this year.  I was reading my RSS feeds earlier and came across Mark DeRosa’s latest blog entry. It’s an interview with Ryan Dempster that is an okay read until […]

Doomed From the Get-Go?

Two ESPN articles peaked my interest today. Allstate Sugar (BCS vs. BCS) projection : Auburn Tigers vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders ESPN link No, you didn’t misread that. This writer actually has Tech going to a BCS bowl game! The Red Raiders are gunning for big things in 2008. QB Graham Harrell and receiver Michael […]

Fantasy Football Fun!

No more alliteration; I promise. I participated in a fantasy football league this with a group of guys I know through Monica. Her group of close friends at work get together and this group of guys is the husbands. Great bunch. $20 buy-in; winner receives $100, second place gets $40, and third gets $20. Draft […]
