Huge Hoops Game Friday, East Rutherford Host Shelby

I bet the gym will be packed at East Rutherford on Friday, December 20. It’s East Rutherford (4-1, 2-0) versus Shelby (5-1, 3-0) to see who can obtain the early SMAC standings lead on the boys side of the equation.

Despite East Rutherford leading at the end of eight of those quarters, Shelby won all four meetings last year.

How’s your attitude?

A friend was learning to fly.  You are required to wear blinders when you are learning so that you are trained in how to look only at the instruments on your dash, not at the airspace around you.

He was given an order to increase his altitude to so many thousands of feet, which he began doing.  All of a sudden, the instructor yanked the blinders off of my friend and said, “You were so concerned about your altitude, but now look at your attitude!”

Outdoor Truths
   We all like to be identified with certain things. Some people will drive nothing but a Ford – except for the Chevy guys who think Ford stands for Fix ORepair Daily. Bow hunters are notorious for this as well. There are PSE people (like me) and there are others who will own nothing but a Mathews, Hoyt, Bear, or some other brand.
