Sports Thoughts

by Mike Organ

The Eagles basketball team is for real. They are accomplishing a lot by hustle, desire, and a little basketball talent. They are fun to watch. They make the opponent’s offense look like Tony Romo against the Vikings. They are everywhere, with a hand in your face, frustrating the offense. If the guys keep it up, they will be in the playoffs for the first time in years.

The Lady Eagles finished the first half of district play 1-5. They could very possibly finish 6-6 and maybe, just maybe, squeeze into the playoffs.

Speaking of Romo, the Cowboys reverted to the bumbling, take a play off team, they were early in the season. I guess it was too much to ask for them to stay focused through the Super Bowl.

Texas and A&M better find some place for their players to party other than bars. Both schools have had players get arrested just since the season ended. Texas has a special ‘coach’ to take care of these things. Maybe the schools should hire a ‘party planner’ for the players.

After spending some time in Alabama, I think that if one of their players got arrested, the arresting officer would be put in jail for defamation of the state.
