By now, you’ve surely heard of Austin Wood, the University of Texas reliever and modern folk hero who, cramping and vomiting, threw 169 pitches in a seven-hour NCAA regional Saturday. Most amazing of all? That throwing 169 pitches in a college baseball game isn’t, in itself, all that amazing.
A very eventful day. First of all it’s my daughter Lacey’s birthday. Happy Birthday Pookie!
Second of all, it will be the first time I will see the new Cowboys Stadium in person and up close and personal. For a life-long Cowboys fan, this is a pretty historic day.
I’ve been with the Cowboys in the Cotton Bowl. Watched as they moved into Texas Stadium in Irving while I was in the military. And now this. The historic Cowboys Stadium. This will be the last time I see them move into a new arena. It’s important to me and I’m gonna be there for the very first venue, the George Strait concert on Saturday.
Everyone says it’s gonna be an awesome event, and I’m going to try and provide you all with as much detail as possible so stay tuned!
See that guy up above here? That’s my old friend Dave. Today’s blog entry is about old Dave because I want to use him as an example of what a friend ought to be. Now, Dave isn’t extravagant, he isn’t flashy, but one of the best qualities about Dave is he means what he says. If he tells you that a chicken dips snuff, you better look under that chicken’s wing for a can of Copenhagen.
I would venture to say if more people were like Dave, I would have more friends.
The truth is, there are many people that go out of their way to lie about their status, lie about what they do in life, lie when the truth would be much easier to tell. But some people will never learn that. Maybe they should have friends like old Dave to learn from.
