Army has accepted a bid to compete in the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl on Dec. 30 at SMU‘s Ford Stadium. SMU could turn out to be Army’s opponent.
The Mustangs play Saturday at Central Florida in the Conference USA Championship. If they win, they’ll likely be headed to the Liberty Bowl in Memphis on Dec. 31st. If they lose, staying home for a bowl could be a very real option. The bowl is being held at Ford Stadium while TCU’s Amon Carter Stadium undergoes renovations.
The Black Knights haven’t played in a bowl since 1996.
Organizers report that the bowl is officially a sellout – though that includes ticket allotments that each competing team will be responsible for selling.
Leslie Nielson, an actor who truly made me laugh, passed on to another type of plane over this past weekend. He died of pneumonia. He was 84.
I know he made several movies and was a successful comedian, but my all-time favorite movie with Nielsen was Airplane!
Now, both Peter Graves and Leslie Nielsen are gone but certainly not forgotten.
Surely, there will never be another like these two. And don’t call me Shirley!
WK 11 Can’t-Miss Play: Yes We McCann!.
The Cowboys have won two in a row! We should have gotten Garrett to coach this team sooner!
Sometimes there are things to write, and sometimes there are things to write but I just can’t write. Right?
As I try to get my fingers used to the keyboard again, lots of things have happened. The Texas Rangers made it to the World Series and put up a valiant effort but lost. The Cowboys fire another coach. Veteran’s Day has come and gone, and we are now looking right at plans for Thanksgiving. Wow, where does the time go? Of course moving and going to school took up a large part of that gap.
Martin’s video was conceived and produced by the staff and advisers of The Warrior Post, the student newspaper. They believe that the final product will set two records: the largest cast for a school lip dub and the first schoolwide lip dub by a Texas high school. The organizers even approached Guinness World Records for some recognition, but they were told that it would cost money for research and judging, photography teacher Dan Regalado said. “We wanted to take the free way,” said Regalado, whose wife, Tricia, is the journalism teacher. “But they said, ‘Oh, you could try out for the largest air guitar.’” Martin’s video, set to Everybody Needs Somebody to Love by the Blues Brothers and Think by Aretha Franklin, starts in a bus in front of the school’s main entrance. The first of several “singers” guides the viewer off the bus and through a double line of students cheering and tossing paper airplanes. Murray and the camera weave through hallways and classrooms, passing activities such as chemistry students lighting fires in their hands, biology students pigging out in a pie-eating contest and a student body-surfing on a crowd.http://www.star-telegram.com/2010/11/04/2606237/at-martin-high-the-kids-all-stay.html
