Sports Thoughts

by Mike Organ

We have some sports to cover and go to now. I enjoy watching volleyball in the air-conditioned gym. I was told by school personnel the gym AC is turned on anytime there is a game or scrimmage. The rest of the time it is off.

The volleyball girls are coming along. Since Amanda Dowdy left, they haven't had a serious kill threat. The girls try very hard but being over 6 feet tall helps immensely.

Speaking of Amanda, she spent the summer playing volleyball all over the place. Her skills and determination are getting her world travels and experiences she will cherish the rest of her life.

Jordan Peterson and E.J. Hawkins are playing their last year of college football. It seems like only yesterday they were leading the Eagles to the playoffs and to a state title in track.

What kind of teammate is Vincente Padilla? The Texas Rangers cut him for being a bad influence in the clubhouse. They are eating his $14 million dollar contract in the process. Must be pretty bad!!!

Who will sign Michael Vick? I hope none of the Texas teams, but he is a talented athlete that has served his penance and is attempting to return to his former life if allowed.
