Frantic Friday

I arrived back in Russell at 4:15 a.m., not bad considering the construction between Chapman and Abilene and the heavy rain near Salina, plus a stop in Salina. I ate too much on the drive home, and I paid the price just before 7. I’ll spare the details. I was starting to feel a little tired by time I got to the Russell County line, but that was to be expected given I had been up since 10 a.m., and I was drained from all the crying earlier in the day. Crying does that to me.

I’m a mess. I’ve got to reorganize my camera bag, considering I haven’t covered an event since the 8-man football all-star games in Beloit in early June. At least I have a battery fully charged and a 32 GB memory card ready to go, and I have a pad ready to take down statistics. So at least I’m good in that regard.

I’ve got to get out of the house, but I am not taking the computer. I have the iPhone to keep up with Twitter and Facebook. The matches start at 4 at Victoria, which is only 15-20 minutes driving west on I-70. It’s not the greatest day, but I have to do it.

About David

I am a sportswriter for a group of weekly newspapers in small towns across northern Kansas. I grew up in New Orleans, went to college at LSU and wandered in the wilderness until Hurricane Katrina finally put me on the path to my current job.
