Summer nearing an end for me; getting ready for 2012-13 athletic season's start; Yours truly will use Panama Preseason Softball Festival to help prepare 2012 Fall Diamond Tab

July 28, 2012

First off, I hope that all of you have had a happy and safe summer break. I've enjoyed the more relaxed stretch of the year when I don't have to worry about high school and Carl Albert State College athletics. There was just enough Legion baseball, camps and golf tournaments to keep me out of trouble.
However, I now have to get back to reality, which is the 2012-13 athletic season is just around the corner. In fact, I'm actually going to start getting ready for it next week.

All-State BB Game capped Howe hoopster's prep career

July 27, 2012

TULSA — Megan Brown’s time of playing basketball goes way back.
She’s been involved, “ever since I could dribble the ball,” she said. “About when I was 3 or 4.”
But Wednesday night marked the last time the Howe High School graduate played an official game on the hardwood, as she played for the East in the All-State Small School Girls Basketball Game at the Oral Roberts University Mabee Center. She got to start and scored just six points. But they were big, consisting of a pair of 3-point baskets. She also made her share of contributions in blocking.

For a moment, I felt like I was Batman

July 27, 2012

Last Friday afternoon, my son, Jacques, and I went to Poteau Theater to see “The Dark Knight Rises.” Johnathan and Nathan Rice were there, and those boys made me sit on the very front row. I haven't sat on the front row at the movie theater since 1996 when I was late for “Twister” because that was one of the only seats left in the whole theater.

TULSA — Wister outfielder Caleb Hill is used to playing for a lot of state tournament teams from his days playing for the Wildcats, which includes a championship team from May 2011.
But Tuesday was different for the recent Wildcat graduate. He participated in the Small School All-State Baseball game as a member of the East team, which beat the West 4-0 at Johnson Stadium, located on the campus of Oral Roberts University.
What was different?
“Playing at a college baseball stadium, maybe, and a lot of fans — I’m not used to it,” Hill said.
Another was playing with new people.
