Mebbee Next Year........
Well, this past weekend MSU's baseball team took #2 national seed Florida to a 3rd and deciding game but came up on the short end of an 8-6 score in game 3. The weekend was not without excitment though. On Saturday, State was on the short end of a 3-2 score going into the bottom of the 9th inning, and Nick Vickerson hit a walk-off 2 run homer to extend the series to Sunday. Even though my Dawgs didn't make it to the College World Series this year - Well - HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL. Maybe next year.
Now everyone that knows me - knows I am a HUGE football fan. This coming 2011 season DKW will have to put up w/me and football on Fridays (Starkville High), Saturdays (MSU) and Sundays/Mondays (NFL on TV) - not to mention Thursday nights because my grandson will be playing on the Jr. High (7th/8th grade) team. So after December/January there is usually a bit of a football break. WELLLLL - Hold on jest a cotton-pickin' second there pardner - - It was announced today that Tupelo will once again have an Indoor Football team beginning in February 2012. Tupelo has been announced as one of the expansion cities for the Ultimate Indoor Football League. The team name, schedule, etc. won't be announced until later in the year. This will actually be the third time a professional indoor team will be in Tupelo and I did attend games of the previous two teams. From 2005-08, there was the Tupelo Fireants and in 2009-10, there was the Mississippi Mudcats. Whatever this team is named I want to attend a couple of games.
Everyone Have a great day!
