I should have gone to a game tonight. Should have… but I didn't. We’ve all had those crazy weeks where everything just goes haywire all at one time. Haywire describes this week for me. Basketball tournaments, football playoffs, state volleyball… not to mention my full-time job. So, here I sat in my recliner with my laptop and my phone diligently looking, searching, digging, stalking, and listening for scores.
I will let you in on a little secret… I love it but it requires top-notch skills in the multi-tasking department. At one point, I had Mixlr up on my phone listening to one game with another game going on Mixlr on my laptop, and watching another game via a mother’s Facebook Live. It’s a good thing I’m an excessive clicker.
Shoutout to Leman, Sixmania, Monica Hauk, Jeff Shelton, Michael McClure, and the Principal at Jonesboro for diligently posting/sharing scores. It takes a village! Some of you knew I was stalking you and others of you did not. Now ya know.
The Calvert/Oakwood game turned into a barnburner. I mean a real barnburner! Oakwood, runner-up from District 15, took the lead in the fourth quarter and never gave it up. Balmorhea let Wellman-Union score early but then sped off like a Mario Andretti. Blackwell and Guthrie hung in until almost the end of the 3rd quarter. Blackwell did prevail. Jonesboro and Union Hill came away with a win to lead them to the Area round of Division I next week. Valley, Aspermont, and Strawn all unlocked a spot in the Division II Area round.
So what do we have on tap for Friday? Just a lot really…
Who will make a run at the Area round? You’ll have to tune in and find out. Better yet, go to a Bi-District game! Don’t know where to go? I can hook you up or any of the other fine Sixman peeps – many websites with the information. But if you can’t find it, let me know. I’ll point you in the right direction.
As for me… I’m trying to choose where to go, but I AM going! I’m leaving Recliner City.
Observations from tonight:
So… if you aren’t now convinced to go to a game tomorrow, there’s probably nothing else I can say to persuade you. BUT lucky you… you have Facebook and twitter! Follow Sixmania, Leman, Sixmanguru, or Texas 1A Fan. You’ll get all the football scores and updates you’ll ever want/need!
Until tomorrow night, Go forward and do Good!
