My first college football game

As the college football season approaches, fans are beginning to get excited about their teams and the possibility of a championship season. Of course these dreams and expectations will fade in most cases as the season progresses. There’s only one champion left standing at the end of the year, although a team can have a great season without winning that National Championship game.As most of you know, I am an Auburn fan who also has a fondness for Georgia Tech. Yeah, I know th...

Upson-Lee and Troup County scrimmage tonight

November 8 of last year was the last time the Upson-Lee Knights competed against another team on the football field. On that night, they suffered a 31-7 loss to the Stockbridge Tigers at Tiger Stadium. Tonight, Upson-Lee will get their first chance of 2014 to compete against another team. This game will not mean nearly as much as the Stockbridge game last season, but to some degree it may forecast a little of what fans can expect from the Knights in 2014.

So Sad!!!

A week or so ago I was sitting on my front porch working on a cross word puzzle when I noticed that a baseball game had started in my front yard. My grandson Luke Spraggins and a couple of his friends, Kyler Mullis and Gage Burbrink, were engaged in an old-fashioned game of back yard baseball even though it was in the front yard. They were using a plastic baseball and using a bush for first base and a mailbox for third base. They were making the rules as they went along, but they were having ...
