in most last post i mentioned cookie sheets and drum sticks… yeah… very annoying thing. have any of you seen this yet? people banging on cookie sheets with drumsticks? holy hell!
we went to one of the playoff games Friday night at DKR Stadium (that’s the Longhorn stadium for those who don’t follow college ball)… the game was lake travis v cedar park… great game… two power-house teams who are very tough… lake travis has been the state champion for i don’t know how many years… it’s the high school of garrett gilbert (who was at UT but recently moved to SMU)… his brother is playing at the high school now and he’s pretty good… anywho…it was a great game…
but the fans! we sat on the cedar park side… and they like to make noise…lots and lots o’ noise.. and what better way than to bring mom’s cookie sheets to the game so you can bang on them? man…
you know, i love watching the coaches call in plays… some teams have a very interesting system for doing this… others you don’t even notice… last year, i found the dancing coaches… so friday night at the game, those coaches don’t really signal the plays… JV players do.. and there are 4 of them… they have big squares, one each.. each square is marked with colors or numbers… they hold up above their heads the color/number combo that is designated for a particular play… coach calls the play and the card guys hold up the cards for the players….
for the new semi-pro team we’re involved with… well i got to thinking… i could do that job…hold up the cards signaling in the plays- but naturally, the cards would be bedazzled, or maybe have feathers all around the edges of the card… and i would have to paint my face or wear one of those crazy afro wigs in the team colors….and maybe a little jig would have to be put in place as well… i think coach might be a bit embarrassed though so i let the idea go…. i’m nice like that
we discussed half time shows for our semi pro team as well… i can’t do much about that but i did suggest maybe a large flat screen that we could roll out there and then hook it up to youtube so we could maybe show Gramblin or something
that is one heck of a band… fun to watch too… wish i could find a really good video of them…
it has been raining all weekend… lots and lots of rain…and that means only one thing…. leaks… freakin leaks… in the ceiling again… shit… but only when the downpours were torrential… light, nice slow rain doesn’t produce leaks… we spent yesterday morning putting out coffee cups, cans, baking dishes, towels… all over the place haha! at least the bedroom stays dry… no leaks in there… whew… it was a very frustrating and tense morning in the tin can yesterday… and my remedy for that?
PIE FOR BREAKFAST OF COURSE!
THIS IS THE VIEW FROM THE PARKING LOT AT THE SCHOOL
i don’t know if i’ve ever mentioned it here, but coach is a lover of guns… imagine that. he’s a redneck… yes, i said it… REDNECK 🙂 and i say it with all the love in my heart… i can’t begin to tell you how many guns we have… long ones, short ones, skinny ones, fat ones… haha
part of saturday was spent at Red’s Indoor Gun Range… i wasn’t going to go.. i worked that morning – my plan was to go home and nap while the guys shot shit up … but i was wrangled into going along… bleh next time i won’t be going…. i’ve been, i’ve seen, and that’s it… it is stinky, hot, and oh so boring there… i don’t shoot guns… i don’t like them… plus, i can’t hold myself steady much less a gun!
there is just something about a person who is shaky, loaded with tremors and dizziness shooting a gun….
samples of the only shooting i do at a gun range:
the lighting was piss poor and i wasn’t allowed to use a flash… oh well… i did manage to capture the fire in one shot…
i saw a bunch of junk on twitter saturday… SB1867 … people are saying that it gives the military power to detain, arrest, or execute protesters without PC or trial… i haven’t found that wording yet… it does say any one who is anti-government but does not extend to US citizens… then someone said there is some amendment they are trying to pass that says it DOES include US citizens…. i haven’t found that yet either…. it’s all about the war on terrorism… is that such a bad thing? let me know if you find the wording that says protesters and other Americans speaking out against the govt will be detained and killed….
