The Tigers baseball team will travel to Forney Tuesday night for a district game against the Jackrabbits. The Tigers will then host Lancaster Tigers Thursday night. The team has started slow in district play, but starting with the game against Lancaster, Terrell will have 5 of the final 7 district games at home. Hopefully, the home field will give them the boost needed to make the playoffs.

I downloaded GIMP the other night and haven't had much time to mess around with it. I do like this feature.

To follow up on the paint ball post from yesterday, the paint looks orange, but looking closely at the pictures it looks like the ball may have had a red shell. The paint washes off the glass. I did see the glass broken in a door of a unoccupied building, not sure if its related to the paint ball. I heard from someone who said the grounds of Terrell Senior Terrace Apartments have been littered with red and blue paint balls lately, fired from the homes behind the complex. A few pictures have been added to the TDP Facebook page.

For anyone that didn't see my posts from Saturday or Sunday, I finished a 5k race, my first one. My time wasn't the greatest, but I wasn't going for time, I was going for the finish. I ended up jogging/walking the 5k in 41:12. My goal for the next race is under 40 minutes. Complete race results are here.
North East Texas Fine Art Alliance is holding their Terrell Paint Out March 20-27, 2010. Info can be found here.
The Tigers baseball team has their tournament play behind them and now dive head first into district play. They won their first district game last week at West Mesquite. Tomorrow they host Mabank. Every game counts now in their drive to return to the playoffs.
In February, I posted a photo from part of the old Terrell Nike Missile site. Some of the comments are from someone who was stationed at the old Nike site in Alvarado, Texas. He has left some of his memories of working at a Nike site on the post. Check them out.
Photos have been added to the Facebook page from Fridays baseball game and from around town taken yesterday. Check the link to the right.
No school zones to drive through this week on the way to work, spring break has started.
Have a great Monday!

Here are a few shots of the Dash Down Greenville 5K race. This was my first ever 5K race. I wasn't sure I would be able of finish, but I did. I did walk a little, but for the most part I was running. I finished in 41:12. I am going to run again on the 27th in Kaufman. The race is the Spring into Action 5K fun run and walk. I'm going to try to get under 40 minutes.
This is near the starting line. It took me over 7 minutes to make it from my spot to the start.
I will post other pictures from the morning a little later today.

The Tigers dropped another game in the I-30 tournament yesterday. Potentially more damaging than a loss of the game was the loss of starting senior pitcher Barrett Calverly who was hit by a line drive on the inside of the knee. The picture above is from earlier in the game.
The tournament losses may not help with the teams confidence, but the only record that will matter is district won/loss.
Brian and I are going to run in the Dash Down Greenville 5K race today. I'll have the camera in tow.

The first half was scoreless but each team did have scoring chances. The Lions came out strong in the second half, after senior night festivities that included player and parent introductions and give aways, and put the game away.
The play was rough all game as each team had multiple yellow cards handed out. The end of the match was marred by poor sportsmanship on both sides.

The Tigers baseball team begins their final tournament today in Rockwall. They play Rockwall-Heath at noon and Midlothian at 3. Both games are at Rockwall-Heath High School.
Brian and I got our packets for the Dash down Greenville. I cant believe I am going to take part in a 5K.
We also registered for the Spring into Action 5K fun run and walk on March 27th in Kaufman, Texas.

The Tigers baseball team won their district opener at West Mesquite 10-0 last night. Great start to district play. They have one more tournament that starts tomorrow in Rockwall before their first home game next Tuesday against Mabank.
I think everyone knows the US Census takes place this year. Its been all over the television, ten questions, 10 minutes. Why is it necessary for them to send out a letter this week letting us know that next week we will be getting the Census form in the mail? Whats the cost of that? Couldn't they at least send a bulk rate post card? Oh well, its not like its my money.........oh wait, it is.

Birdville High School was one of the teams taking part in the Waxahachie tournament. It's part of the Birdville ISD along with Richland and Haltom High Schools.
A cool story making the rounds yesterday about the Birdville ISD from the Dallas Business Journals.
Tarrant County College and the Birdville Independent School District are teaming up to offer free tuition at the county community college starting this fall for every high school graduate at the district.

The Cedar Hill Longhorns was another team that Terrell competed against down in Waxahachie.
