Heart of Dallas Bowl

For the past two years the bowl game held in Cotton Bowl Stadium was called the TicketCity Bowl.  The 2013 game has been renamed to the Heart of Dallas Bowl presented by Plains Capital Bank, after the new title sponsor.  Heart of Dallas is a nonprofit that will use the net profits of the game to benefit the Dallas charities that serve the homeless population.  This years game matches the Purdue Boilermakers from the Big 10 and Oklahoma State Cowboys from the Big 12.

Purdue will be coming into the game on a roll.  They won their last 3 games of the year to become bowl eligible. Oklahoma State lost their final two games, but scored 82 points in the loses.

Kickoff is 11am, New Years Day at Cotton Bowl Stadium.  Tickets are available from $25 to $125.

Best of 2012 #5

This is Tim Flanders from Sam Houston State during the 2012 FCS Championship game in Frisco. Sam Houston State lost the game to North Dakota State 17-6.  The Bearkats get a rematch with the Bison on January 5th in the 2013 FCS Championship game in Frisco. Unfortunately, I will not be on the sidelines for that game. Flanders was named 3rd team FCS All-American this year.

Sky gazing

Saw a balloon yesterday near Farmersville enjoying the 70 degree weather.  One week till Christmas, it sure don't feel like it yet. 

Former Terrell head football coach Chris Gilbert has his Lancaster Tigers in the Texas Class 4A Division II final against Cedar Park Friday night at Cowboy Stadium.  The Tigers are loaded with talent, but led by Washington State signee and former Terrell Tiger Demarcus Ayers.  Good luck to Coach Gilbert and the Lancaster Tigers. 

College bowl season is now underway.  One of the best times of the years. Quite a few student athletes from the area will be competing.   

I'm getting ready for my best of posts. I'm going to do the top 10, with my favorite picture posted on January 1st. 

Update: Demarcus decommitted from Washington State last week.

Tour of Homes

Yesterday was the annual Christmas Tour of Homes by the Social Science Club of Terrell. This house was one of the 6 homes on the tour this year. The home is only a year or so old and the owners have done a fantastic job inside and out.
