Old Man Winter takes out Tech softball again

in

The Louisiana Tech Lady Techster softball team was supposed to open Conference USA play this weekend against WKU in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
But due to the field conditions in Bowling Green following the winter weather that swept across the country earlier this week, the three-game series has been cancelled and will not be made up.
Tech has now seen six games cancelled and two more postponed due to Mother Nature. The Lady Techsters will return home to host a pair of games.

“I feel like we played pretty well,” said Tech coach Chad Camper. “We stayed competitive and played with a lot of heart. It was a good match to get ready for the rest of the season.”

North Louisiana backups talented, too

in

Choosing our recent All-Time Fab Five men’s basketball squad wasn’t a “slam dunk” — excuse the pun — by any stretch of the imagination.
With so many great hoopsters out of our area, it’s necessary to give each candidate a thorough evaluation.
But I do think that the players we selected to start on such a mythical team could hold their own in a pickup game, regardless of what other area of the country would care to pose a challenge.
Willis Reed, Karl Malone, Robert Parish, Joe Dumars, Elvin Hayes.
Yep, I believe they would do just fine.

Here’s hoping the turkeys haven’t been in communication with the crappie. If so, it may be a tough season ahead for Louisiana’s turkey hunters.
The crappie have been bunched up in deep water for weeks; yet, they have refused to bite. I hope they’re not telling the turkeys just to keep their lips zipped and they’ll live longer. If so, we turkey hunters are sunk.

Thanks to the volunteers of luncheon

in

Each year in the program for ACHIEVE’s “Community Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon” the following words are printed: “America is a land of choices and people can commit their time or spend their money in countless ways. But for volunteers and donors, philanthropy is not just a consumer choice. It is a statement about themselves and what they want their society to look like. When Americans make the choice to give, our nation becomes better . . . our world becomes better. As a society, we become more united. We become a community.”

It's so hard to say 'goodbye'

DeGrie, Elizabeth 2014.jpg

If you’re reading this it’s too late to say goodbye, as musician Drake and my millennial coworker would say.
As you read this, my husband and I will be packing up our home in preparation for movers and a several hour drive on Monday morning. My husband has accepted a job in New Orleans with a video game company. From the time he was a small child, he’s loved video games, and he specifically focused on computer science and physics in school so that he could eventually work for a video game company.
