Norton to Russell (and KC?)

Seroquel and the long day yesterday left me quite drowsy. Yet I’m almost ready to go; as soon as I finish this post and pack up my computer, I’ll be on my way back to Russell. I’ve got a decision to make whether or not to go to Kansas City, but I probably will, seeing as I have a lot of work to do, and the last two Sundays I haven’t gotten a thing done staying home.

Norton’s boys easily defeated Smith Center 58-29. The Redmen missed a heck of a lot of open shots from short range which would have made the game much closer, but the Bluejays are awfully good. The only bugaboo for Norton came when Deon Lyle missed a dunk in the first quarter. Bluejays coach Doug Reusink immediately sent in a substitute, but Lyle redeemed himself with a layup before the next dead ball. When Lyle finally came out, Reusink gave him the business.

Smith Center’s highlight was a breakaway dunk by Mason Buckmaster in the fourth quarter, but by this time, the clock was running continuously, which occurs when one team holds a 30-point lead at the end of the third quarter or later. The Bluejays were up 53-19 after three.

Norton is now 6-0 heading into the long holiday break. Smith Center fell to 1-5.

The first college football bowl game of 2014, the R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl, kicks off at 10 a.m. Louisiana-Lafayette is in the game for the fourth consecutive year, taking on Nevada. Hope the Cajuns lose. ULL hates LSU passionately, and Bayou Bengal fans mostly return the favor in kind.

About David

Louisiana native living in Kansas. New Orleans born, LSU graduate. I have Asperger’s Syndrome, one toe less than most humans, addictions to The Brady Bunch, Lifetime movies, Bluey, most sports, food and trivia. Big fan of Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Brewers, New Orleans Saints, Montreal Canadiens. Was a big fan of Quebec Nordiques until they moved to Denver. My only celebrity crush is NFL official Sarah Thomas. I strongly dislike LSU fans who think Alabama is its biggest rival, warm weather, steaks cooked more than rare, hot dogs with ketchup, restaurants without online ordering, ranch dressing, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, Alex Ovechkin, Barry Bonds, Putin, his lover in Belarus, North Korean dictators, Venezuelan dictators, all NHL teams in the south (especially the Lightning and Panthers), Brooklyn Nets and Major League Soccer.
