Sports Thoughts

by Mike Organ

Can you believe the Eagles basketball? I guess you can’t because the crowds have not been as big as in the past when the Eagles were contending for the district championship. We need the gym full of Eagle fans each of the remaining home games. They occur on Tuesday nights.

I got a little aggravation from a nephew-in-law. He was at the Superdome when the New Orleans Saints beat Minnesota for their first trip to the final game. He sent a picture taken from his seat. He is still in NO celebrating.

Can you believe that softball practice has already started and baseball practice will start Friday?! Coach Starnes cannot start to work with softball until basketball is over. Coach Finley will start his practice with a few basketball players missing, hopefully a long time.

Indianapolis vs. New Orleans in the Super Bowl. A Texas school would love to claim Drew Brees. No one even offered him a scholarship out of Westlake High in Austin. An All-American in college was not good enough for Texas colleges; he had to go to Purdue in Indiana. Just to be equal, Peyton Manning was not the best quarterback on his college team in Tennessee. He was second string until the player from Stephenville transferred to a Texas school. Coaches don’t really know for sure; they just do their best.
