New season, new coach for Poteau wrestlers; Pirate senior seeks to become three-time state champion

November 30, 2012

The Poteau Pirates wrestling team will begin its 2012-13 season this weekend, participating in the two-day Jay Duals Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
The Pirates will have a new coach, but not really that much of a new coach. Jack Hornbuckle, who has been helping with the program, is the new coach, replacing Chris Barbee — who resigned after the school year ended the past spring.
“They're more than ready,” Hornbuckle said about getting the season ready. “They're getting tired just working out every day.”

Thunder beats Rockets, spoils Harden's return to OKC

November 30, 2012

OKLAHOMA CITY — There was no homecoming party for James Harden. His return was met with a smattering of boos and cheers as the former Thunder player faced his previous team for the first time Wednesday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena — and the Oklahoma City Thunder blew out Harden's Houston Rockets 120-98.
One surprising comment to relay was the lack of crowd support at the game. There were many empty seats scattered around the arena, including some in the lower areas close to the court.
The Thunder will entertain the Utah Jazz at 7 pm. Friday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Tattoo — 'The Bass Pro Possum'

November 30, 2012

It was awful. The sounds coming from our back deck made my skin crawl.
It was about 5:45 p.m. on Thanksgiving. Everybody that was at my house, a.k.a, “The Jody Ray Sports Complex,” for dinner just had left. We just got done cleaning up, and my wife, Jenny, my son, Jacques, and I were sitting on the couch, getting ready to get our game plan together for “Black Friday” shopping. All of the sudden, we heard this God-awful ruckus out in the back of our house. I grabbed a flashlight to investigate.
