Terrell, Texas Monday Morning Mashup

From Terrell Daily Photo

Time to get back to work, but the New Year break was fun. It was topped by attending the inaugural TicketCity Bowl in Dallas on Saturday. I uploaded an album of photos to the Facebook page.  Tyler Potts, Tech QB, was named the TicketCity Bowl MVP. Organizers could not have hoped for a better game. Tech held a 31-9 lead early in the 3rd quarter, but ended up having to intercept a Northwestern pass on the final play to come away with a 45-38 win. The crowd was announced at just over 40,000, there may not have been that many in the stands, but they were loud and having a chilly good time.   I look forward to more opportunities to roam the sidelines.

Saturday morning was the I am Superman 5K race in Rockwall. The temperature was just above freezing, but there were still runners in shorts. Not me, I put on my sweat pants and double long sleeve shirt. I should have paid more attention to the pants. The elastic is shot, so I ran trying to hold up my sweats. That's my excuse and I am sticking to it. I ran a 38:54, not a good time.  Next Saturdays race is the Super Bowl XLV 5K in Richardson.

Tigers soccer gets started this week.  The girls have home scrimmages tonight against Waxahachie and Friday against Wylie.  The boys begin play Tuesday night at Rockwall and Friday at Mansfield Timberview.

The basketball teams get back to district play tomorrow.  The girls host Lancaster at 7:30PM.  The boys travel to Lancaster.

Nice photostream! Where were your seats? I didn't know you were going to a Big Ten game. Poor Big clobbered New Year's Day. My Spartans were trounced. I thought I was walking into a football stadium, not a slaughterhouse. I had a bad feeling, though, when 'Sweet Home Alabama' was being played over the stadium P.A. before the game. I still had fun, though!

Runners aren't supposed to let anything stop them. You shoulda ripped em off and kept going! ;)

Great close up of the football players. As you can imagine, we're pretty excited about our Patriots in the upcoming playoffs.
