Last year, there were only two 11-man head football coaching positions that became available in this area — Seymour and Petrolia.Share

Josh Castles is headed to Bowie, leaving Seymour on the lookout for another head football coach. Two quick thoughts about this move:Share

I don’t care if you like Jim Cramer, and I don’t care if you like Jon Stewart, but you have to watch this interview.Share
For the past couple of days the media has been hyping up this fued between Stewart and Cramer because Stewart was doing his job of making fun of people and CNBC got in the way.
So last night, Thursday, the two got together and had a good talk. A lot of things were put out on the table that I don’t think a lot of people understand and acutally know about what was going on.
I’m not going to pretend that I know the least bit on what happened in the financial sector, but I’m glad to see this feet to the fire is still being done by some people.
Watch this and you might gain, at least, a little understanding on what happened to the economy over the past year(s).
Comments would be appreciated. You can watch the unedited video on Jon Stewart’s website.
- Thoughts on the Bowie-Brock game
Friday, March 6th, 2009
I’m back from Austin and just wanted to pipe in some thoughts on Bowie’s 46-42 loss to Brock in the 2A state semifinal.Share
*First, I agree with Coach Garrett that this was the state championship game. Brock plays Woodville tomorrow, but i don’t think it’ll be close.

I’m killing time before Bowie’s 2A girls semifinal, watching the other semi (Woodville vs. Salado) at the Erwin Center.Share
Woodville was winning 30-15 in the last few seconds of the first half when Salado’s Brennan Boydstun sunk a half-court shot at the buzzer.
SInce then, Salado has hung in there, and the score is 32-23 with 4:31 left in the third quarter.
If Bowie beats Brock, they will have a pretty good height advantage over Woodville, who is pretty fast. If Salado and Bowie play in the final, I think it’ll be a runaway.
But Bowie has to beat Brock first, in what Coach Garrett told me was the best two teams playing in the tournament.
** A non-basketball related note. I met a pretty interesting guy last night whose name is John Paul Hebert. He’s one of the pros at the really nice UT Golf Course, and he happens to be the neighbor of one of my best friends.
What makes him so unique? His father and uncle both won the PGA Championship. I don’t know which one was which, but Lionel Hebert won the 1957 PGA at Miami Valley Golf Club, the last year it was match play.
And Jay Hebert won at Firestone in 1960. That’s pretty amazing — to have two people in your family win majors.
Anyway, I’m going to get ready for the Bowie game. Score update: Woodville 38, Salado 25 with 1:27 left in the third.
