    That is one helluva story, Wick. I have a deep-seated suspicion of church schools. Which means I’m wrong. Often. Especially now.

    Sniffle, snort, sniffle. Great story by a great writer.

    Happy Holidays to All…

  • I covered a game Gainesville State played against a 2A school. This piece is absolutely dead on in the fact that nobody but a few wives of employees are on the visitors side to cheer for the kids.

    It’s kind of a production for them to play, too. There were two people from GSS at each exit.

    It’s nice to see another school show some compassion for these kids, too. The school I covered at the time also made goody bags for the boys, and at the time (this was about 5 years ago or so) it was a very rare occurrence.

    This was a good story when it was in the Star-Telegram last month.

    Here I thought tonight’s TCU game was the best so far… then I read the column.

    I stand corrected.

    Sports Illustrated has not been the same since Reilly quit writing his column.

    Yeah, the backpage writers have been sorely lacking, compared to Reilly. But then again, who would want to follow him?

    Did anybody look at Texas Flood’s link?
