My wife's grandfather was the head referee (white hat) that day. Before he died, he gave my son the equipment he used for the game, just as a keepsake. (I know, I know - cool story bro)

Taking a shot in the dark - looking for 2 tix in Baton Rouge that I can meet you and pick up before Christmas. $20/each is all I'm willing to pay. Going to drive up to S-port day of game, but wanted to wrap them for my son for Christmas....

Did anyone else notice Coach JJ and Robinson's extended conversation towards the end of the game? 2 minutes left, JJ tapped Bridgewater and somebody else on the shoulder, they hopped up and ran to the scorer's table. He did the same to Robinson, Robinson just sat there, didn't even look up. JJ walke...

I was there. Turned to my son in the fourth quarter and toId him I felt like I was at an LSU/McNeese St game or something. LOTS of no shows in the LSU section, tons of empty seats in the other endzone also. Was really strange, guess both fanbases already wrote the season off before this game. My th...

Today's game only bothers me a little. What is more depressing is coming to the realization that no matter how much we "coach 'em up", this is not a team talented enough to even get in the big dance. We just aren't very good. Period....

Unfortunately, no matter how skilled he is, there's no way I'd ever let him on my team. I've heard of people with commitment issues, but never anything remotely close to this. It really is a shame....

oauron, thanks for the update - really liked what I've seen of Coach Weiner so far. In other Dunham (sort of) news, did you see that Drake has quit football? Again?
Can't say I'm surprised.......

Hard to believe Wiggins isn't there. I understand why Froome wouldn't want him there, but shouldn't some start up team try to recruit him or something? I don't know how all that stuff works, just shocked that somebody that good would be left at home.
Also, hoping for Talansky to make the podium, ...

I remember the first game I missed my son pitching. Having to get updates in a hotel room via text doesn't cut it for me. I'd prefer making beans in the short run, consider other options once my kids are out of school. Kids are only kids once, you can never get those years back....

Dunham wins in ho-hum fashion over Northeast in 2A. Looks like Rapides' road to the semi's got a lot easier with Opelousas Catholic getting upset. Although 2A basketball feels a lot like 3A football with Curti...

I don't know a lot about Reeves, but I think them being a 10 seed is surprising. Their only 2 district wins were both against a school that went 4-25. Definitely not expecting them to go very far....

I'll be at Dunbam/Northeast tonight. Funny, Dunham would likely have to beat two district foes to make it to the Top 28.
Also pulling for Elizabeth in Class C, spent some great years in that tiny town....

He's not. Passed him in the portal, crying on his dad's shoulder, his mom crying too. Knee in a very larrge "brace". Very sad to see a young man so distraught....
