Half a Mantle autograph

August 22, 2013

Memorabilia wise, I have something that is very rare, and it could be a one-and-only kind of autograph in the entire civilized world. It could be right up there as the rarest piece of memorabilia in sports collecting folklore.
When we made our normal pilgrimmage to Kansas City in the early 1960s, we would always ride the KCS railroad there.

Fly fishing in the Lower Illinois River is in our future

August 22, 2013

My son has started a fly-fishing frenzy at my house. Cash finally got his fly rod a couple of weeks ago, and Koby and I have both used it at the pond by our house. We have some friends from Greers Ferry, Ark., that gave a fly rod to Koby, and I have to pick it up in a couple of weeks. Koby is excited about getting his own now because he caught a 1½-pound bass on Cash’s last week. I guess I will have to get one also and head to Broken Bow or Tenkiller to try and catch some trout.

Late home run dooms Poteau girls in upset bid over No. 1 Tahlequah

August 22, 2013

An adage goes, “Close only counts in horseshoes.” However, close is the exact word to use in describing Tuesday's Poteau Lady Pirates home game against Class 5A's top-ranked Tahlequah Lady Tigers.
The Lady Pirates were one out away from not only back-to-back home wins, but knocking off the No. 1 team in Class 5A. Then, the blast.
Tahlequah's Kirsten Chase hit the first pitch she saw from Poteau's RaeLynn Caldwell in the seventh inning over the left-field fence for a two-run home run which ended up being the game winning hit in a 2-1 victory.

Spiro football team to have first scrimmage of season tonight; Bulldogs welcome Okmulgee, Tulsa Webster to town

August 22, 2013

The Spiro Bulldogs football team will get a taste of game-night situations when they have a three-way home scrimmage against Okmulgee and Tulsa Webster at 6 tonight at McClain Stadium.
The biggest thing veteran Spiro coach Chris Bunch is looking for is finding No. 2s to spell his No. 1s.
“We're mainly trying to find some depth,” he said. “We don't have many kids out there to begin with, and we're going to have to find some players who can give our starters some rest.”

Talihina football team to be in road scrimmage tonight against Valliant

August 22, 2013

The Talihina Golden Tigers football team will get its first taste of competitive action tonight when they travel to meet the Valliant Bulldogs at 6 p.m.
Tonight's scrimmage will give Talihina coach Kelly Gravitt a chance to see how his new offensive style will look.
“We've put in a no-huddle offense,” he said. “I know the scrimmage will be a slower pace, but I want to see how we respond. We started putting it in last spring, and we've had eight practices so I'm ready to see how we adapt to it.”

A Razorbacks Revival

August 21, 2013

Growing up in eastern Oklahoma, and especially in LeFlore County, I was blessed to see great high school football teams. Spiro, Heavener, Poteau and Panama were all great, and I would see them all yearly. However, since Talihina is on the other side of the county, I had a hard time fully understanding and apperciating just how good the Golden Tigers were, also.
Over the years, the Razorbacks continued to be in the upper echelon in their classification, and they made numerous deep runs into the playoffs.
