OK, this is "official". It seems the May 28tth date simply did not work for any number of reasons...not the least of which it is a holiday weekend. SO...as of today, I have official approval from the Athletic Dept. for JUNE 11th at FOUTS FIELD for the 8th annual GMG.com Bowl Flag Football Game. Start time to be announced shortly. This could very easily be billed as the last "officially sanctioned" football game in Fouts Field...the real Fouts Finale!
One format change for this year's game...we will be opening it up to paid staff members from the UNT Athletic Dept. (both male and female) who may want to participate. Not enough staffers available to make it a game of GMG.com vs. Athletic Dept. staff for lots of reasons, so we will just open the rosters to those in the athletic Dept. who would like top play.
This year's registration fee remain $25 per player. We will be looking for sponsors for the event as we did last year. If you know of a potential sponsor, please let me know.
The beneficiary will be once again the ANDREW SMITH MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND. Donations welcome.
Please check your schedules and sign up to play as soon as you know you are available...of course additional donations welcome from any and all. I also have an idea for a unique silent auction item that might be of interest to some...more on that later.
HERE WE GO...this is going to be great fun! Get your tailgate gear in shape for the after party tailgate extravaganza!
My TV will now be muted the rest of the Rangers season. I've never heard such horrific play-by-play for a MAJOR LEAGUE team.
I always loved Lewin and my dream broadcast crew would have been him and Razor in a booth together (don't care which sport). Sadly, Lewin just isn't translating to radio for me
We are incredibly fortunate to have someone as talented as Hank... thanks for all that you do in the booth and your extra-curricular work around town.
NT has been without question the best BB in the Metroplex for the last five years. However, the price of poker is going up. UTA with a brand new arena and they have always been competitive playing on the stage. SMU has signed their best BB class in a long while and is always willing to throw money at sports. The one I fear may be the most likely to improve substantially and challenge for area superiority is TCU. They will start out as doormat but their basketball will have to improve being in a league that just sent eleven squads to the NCAA's.
With the class coming in NT should be able to strongly vie for the best in DFW, but it is going to be more difficult. In fact IMO NT is going to have to get significantly better to continue their position as king of Metroplex college basketball.
This was really fun. The Bride's family was dressed in Green and the Groom's family in White. The Bride's Mom fell a week or so ago and broke her ankle. she is the one in the wheelchair, although she was able to stand for pictures. These are great fans and they are looking foward to buying season tickets and watching Mean Green history. They've already made some Mean Green history by holding their wedding at the new stadium. It was windy Saturday, but everybody seemed to have a great time. I hope to see them in September when we beat Houston.
All templates are capable of using template tags, and as such when you edit any type of template, there will be a "template tag help" link. Clicking this produces a sidebar (there is then a link in the sidebar to open a separate popup) that details all of the template tags you can insert to include IP.Content data within your template.
However, with database and article templates, there are additional variables that are passed into the template to allow it to manipulate and display the HTML that represents the content. For instance, different data is retrieved and available when you are looking at a list of articles compared to when you are viewing a single article. You need to know what these variables are in order to be able to properly modify the template to display data in the manner you want, and as such, a template variable help popup is available that will detail the variables available for each template type.
When you are editing a template, click on "template variable help" and a new window opens displaying the variables you can expect to be available to the template with a short description of each variable. If you get stuck, this help window can help shed some light on the variables that are available, what values they should contain, and how you can use these variables to your advantage to build a more dynamic and useful interface for your database.
