August 16, 2012

The Poteau Pirates may have been the first team to get some semblance of a game-like situation in last weekend's Red-White Interteam Scrimmage, but the Spiro Bulldogs will get the first taste of real competition for the county.
The ’Dogs will be in a three-way scrimmage at 6 p.m. tonight at Tulsa Webster along with Okmulgee.

August 16, 2012

Our vacation is winding down, and I am, too. We have spent at least three days or nights driving 12 or more hours between locations, and have one more long drive to go. Right now, I am in Estes Park at a nice little cabin near the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. This place is awesome, and I will have some pictures of it next week.
