2020 Spring practice cancelled

Recommended Posts

This is going to be especially hard on us because we need to get another QB(s) ready to go. Maybe the conference would allow a mini-camp during the summer like the NFL does. Now that we have an indoor facility, that wouldn't be such a heat-related hardship. Even if we have another summer like 1980.

Yeah, as a diversion from COVID... the Summer of 1980 in Texas was the worst... my Junior High football team (Graham, TX) started practice a week late, and practice times were very limited.  I imagine it was the same for many High Schools and Universities.

It was so hot... that the blacktop asphalt road in front of our house would bubble and pop in the middle of the afternoon!  117 degrees in Wichita Falls that year.  Brutal......

Played a lot of baseball that summer. They made sure we had lots of water but other than that, things were pretty normal for us.

The heat caused several water mains to break in Fort Worth. And the ones that didn't break that summer probably broke three years later (1983) when we had over two weeks of below freezing weather in December. 

Back to 1980. It will always live in my family's memory. Our son was born in November of 1980.

Do the math.

Since I was talking about the "summer of 1980" a November birth means my wife was very pregnant during that dreadful (and record breaking) summer. Miserable is an inadequate word to describe her situation.
