Finally, a break 

I have something today I didn’t yesterday–a short break. Gave me enough time to return to the press box, use the restroom and blog. 

I’m going back to the field shortly. Got three boys 4×800 meter relay teams to take care of–Natoma in 1A, Smith Center in 2A and Russell in 3A. Then I’ll have a few minutes of down time before the 100-meter dash finals start. 

Smith Center’s L.T. Meitler won the Class 2A boys pole vault at 14 feet, 6 inches. He isn’t done yet; he’ll run the 4×800 relay and the 4×400 relay for the Redmen. Brother Kaden, who will run those events as well, was tied for third at 13-0. 

It is chilly. That wind is biting. I never would have dreamed a day like this could ever occur during the state track and field meet. However, this is Kansas, and fronts actually do make it through here in late spring, unlike Louisiana, where they stall out somewhere between Little Rock and Shreveport. 

There’s still a good ways to go today, but the end draws closer with each race, each field event completed. By 8 p.m. this evening, it’s all over but the writing. 

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.
