This is the kind of hor$hit WB and the AD Dept has to deal with in regards to the Denton Record Chronicle. Our softball team and it’s new coach Rodney DeLong traveled last Friday to College Station and kicked ass. They went 4-1 overall in the Aggie Classic that included a run-rule curb stomping Saturday of the host and 20th ranked A&M team 10-2, our first win over a ranked team in three seasons. We won 9-0 over UNC and won 8-7 in an extra inning marathon (12) over Cal Baptist Friday evening. We then run ruled A&M Saturday afternoon then lost by 1 in extra innings (9) Saturday evening to Cal Baptist. Then we run ruled Northern Colorado 8-2 Sunday morning. So what do the morons at the DRC put accross the top of the sports page this morning? They print a headline teaser across the top of the sports page that UNT Softball “lose in tourneys”. No DUMBASSES!!! North Texas WINS in tourneys! North Texas outscored their opponents 40-17. North Texas won Sunday’s game and went 4-1 in the tournament and kicked the crap out of the ranked team. And yeah, I know it’s the printed version and not online. Despite what you may think or say a lot of potential donors/season ticket holders/supporters of NT Athletics still read the print paper.....but that’s completely beside the point here. It’s the mindset and the negative attitude this paper has always had and always will as long as the Patterson (Ok State Alumni) family runs it. North Texas spends a lot of money advertising in that POS rag. North Texas is Denton’s largest employer. You’d think the days of the constant little negative jabs and back stabbing would be over? It’s not. Effing pisses me off man!!! Rick

meanJewGreen posted a topic in The Eagles Nest (There Should be Pie For Everyone Forum)South by Southwest starts in Austin on Friday with a keynote from President Obama. There's some great panels and things to do this year and I know there's a few of you who are tech/media/music/film enthusiasts. I don't have a badge, but I was wondering, are any other Mean Greeners coming down to Austin for SXSW?
I am heading up to State College this weekend to enjoy the Ohio State @ Penn State football game with my father and two uncles. This will be my first trip to Beaver Stadium, but my 4th or so PSU game (TicketCity Bowl, Alamo Bowl, @ Alabama in '86?). Although the game is not as exciting as it looked before the season, I think it's going to be one of the best sporting experiences I've had. I haven't been able to attend much recently (because small children - no jokes, please) so other than HOD this is pretty much it for big time sports for me since the 2001 NLCS (damn you, Randy Johnson!) and the Indianapolis 500 in '02. It's still a B1G match up and includes the #13 team in the country. I think it will be worth the trip. It's a white-out and I'm hoping to slip some Mean Green into that. I will be having an ice cream at the creamery and a few many Yuengling. Anyone jealous? Anyone care to throw out the greatest sporting event they've been to? Any sport will do. I like sports. But, what I am really looking for here is to be told what a horrible person I am for going and supporting Penn State. That I should be ashamed for traveling nearly 1,500 miles to watch a team play football that supports evil. Tell me I am going to "PEDOPHILE ST". Tell me that my family "don't think Joe Pa did anything wrong". I want your hate. #YOLO
