I got back from Durant at 2 a.m. Saturday after going to the Poteau football season opener.
Then, the next night, I was forced to stay up until 1:30 a.m. Sunday due to the closeness of the Oklahoma Sooners' football game at Texas-El Paso.
I was glad that Monday was a holiday, because I crashed and burned on the couch. I have not failed to watch an OU football on TV for the last five years, but I really can not get enthused on spending $39.95 to watch this Staurday's OU-Florida A&M game on pay-per-view. Leroy, you do still carry those game on the radio donâ€™t you?
Things could not have started much better than the 2012 season did for the Talihina Golden Tigers Friday night in Wilburton. The Golden Tigers dominated the Diggers for a 27-0 road win.
Robert Swinford was the Week 1 winner of the Poteau Daily Newsâ€™ Pigskin Picks contest.
Swinford successfully picked 11 out of 12 winners to win the $25 prize.
The contest ballot runs every Saturday during the contest period. Winners will be announced weekly on the Pigskin Picks page.
This week's picks are due by 5 p.m. today since the Dallas Cowboys' season opener against the New York Giants takes place tonight.
The form was in Saturday's edition of The Poteau Daily News.
