Re: Skyline

Good news for Scooter...the Raiders win today 28-10. Next up, Rowlett

In a side note, My (and Michael's) high school, Sharpstown, made the play-offs for the first time in I don't know how long. They are now a 4A school, which is hard for me to believe. When we were seniors, I think we had one of the largest enrollments in HISD. News wasn't as good for us this weekend - the Apollos lose 27-21.

More Raiders

Skyline Fight Song (with help from Wikipedia)

Hit the team across the field.
Show them that we are here.
Set the earth reverberating
With a mighty cheer...Rah! Rah! Rah!
Hit them hard and see how they fall.
Never let that team get the ball.
Hail, hail, the gang's all here.
So stand up for Skyline High

Notable Alums to make me feel unworthy:

Most famous alum: Michael Johnson.

A year behind me: Peri Gilpin.

The embarassing thing is I think we were the Red Raiders but I'm not certain...many moons have passed.

Go Raiders

My 9-1 Skyline Raiders take on Tyler Lee this Saturday in Corsicana. Per the DMN [may be a firewall or registration], their defense leads the way: points allowed, 6.8; rush yards allowed, 77.3; pass yards allowed, 79.9; first downs allowed, 7.6 (that’s amazing); turnovers forced, 2.5; and shutouts, 4.

Re: French Lounge Act

Well, what's the band's name? (As a fellow audience member of the ISOBOBS, I have a right.)

Re: Cowboys

You have no idea the hell I'm living in. The only time I listen to The Ticket these days is at 8:40am on Mondays - that is when the morning guys do an "interview" with the fake Jerry and the fake Wade. The impressions are scary good and are funny as hell.

Since I don't listen to talk radio anymore, I'm tuning in more and more to the jihadist station. Though I have discovered my new favorite group - a French band that does lounge-version covers of 80's punk and New Wave songs. I have 2 of their cd's - the first one is better (more lounge sounding); the second one has songs I'm more interested in, but they strayed from the lounge sound a bit on it.

I gave up on these guys...meaning permanently (I thought) because of all the Irvin type/thug antics of the Pokes. I'm not sold on Romo but his joy for the game is certainly enticing.

LJ must be in hell.
