Sports Thoughts

by Mike Organ

The Eagles are still in the running for a post season playoff spot in basketball. They seem to be able to comeback late in games after dropping two fourth quarter leads to Jarrell and Salado. It seems the Eagles need to get their emotions in check to avoid being their own worst enemy.

The Lady Eagles had a very good season, despite not being as tall as their opponents. They out hustled all of their district opponents. Great season, girls, even if you did not make the playoffs.

The Super Bowl is over now. The football die-hards will now start getting ready for the draft. Trades, retirements, and team chemistry will figure into the decisions.

I wonder how many billions New Orleans will need to avoid another national blackout. It sure caused the city a lot of embarrassment to delay the game 30+ minutes. It also cost the Ravens the momentum they had and allowed the 49ers to gather themselves and make a run at the title.

According to my eyes, the ‘real officials’ missed some calls that could have allowed the 49ers the win. There was definitely an off sides on the extra point play, and holding on the final pass to Eric Crabtree. Even the game announcers pointed out the off sides.
