The Longest Day!?

I was all set to post the logo of the Texas Rangers on here, congradulating them and their fans on winning the World Series....no such luck!  The hated Cardinals twice came off the mat with 2 outs and one strike away from Texas claiming the crown, to tie the game, before winning it with a walk off home run in the 11th inning.  So tonight will decide it....it has all the feel of the 1975 WS when the Reds blew game 6, losing in extra innings, but still pulled out a hard fought victory in game 7...hopefully Texas can do the same, but regardless, it's been an interesting series.....I will miss game 7 however....

I will be on my way back from Ironton...some 220+ miles south of here.  A final Friday night of regular season football.  If I choose to drive the entire way back(rather than stay at Sam's in Columbus) it will be around 3am when I make Celina...it will indeed be the "Longest Day".   Then after a few hours sleep, I head for Celina Stadium to work the 2 championship games of the Cross County Youth Football League, with the JVs(3rd and 4th grade) beginning at 5:30 followed by the Varsity(5th/6th grades) to follow....

So that's my plan for the weekend....that and resting and maybe drinking a few beers on Sunday...

back Monday with the details....>>>>

Photos-I will be seeing footballs in my sleep after this weekend....and driving the Dodge Nitro rather than the van tonight....with the Deer running wild this time of year, the headlights on the Nitro are at least 10 times stronger than the old van....at least giving me a chance to see any that may jump out on the way home tonight.

Pat,
I am a close friend of Bill Hochendoner's daughter. Yes, Bill's girlfriend was in fact pregnant with his daughter when he was murdered. I have done a lot of 'investigating' for her through the internet. You specifically mention him in your blog and seem to have been a fellow airman. Being in the Army for almost 10 years now, I personally know the lifelong bond that develops between servicemen. I hope that you can help us learn more about him and possibly answer some questions that she has about her dad, that only friends that served with him might provide. I hope this isn't too much to as and look forward to speaking with you as soon as possible. I can be reached at rick.bannon@me.com. Thank you, Rick.
