John Denton '85
Happy day after the election. As the old song “Good Time Charlie’s Got the Blues” by Danny O’Keefe says:
“Some gotta win, some gotta lose …
Good time Charlie’s Got the Blues.”
Regardless of who is president, that person deserves our prayers. Such a gigantic job.
In other news … How about those Frogs?
TCU Women’s Soccer is headed to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history. Great job by head coach Eric Bell and the entire staff and team. AND they get to host a first-round game! Get out and support them on Saturday when they host the Lady Aggies of Texas A&M at 7 p.m.
The matchup feels like a lucky one. We’ve done well against the Aggies in post-season play lately. #Schloss.
And, yes, the trip to Baylor last Saturday was great, with a few surprises thrown in to make the day almost perfect. The pregame chicken fried steak at George’s was superb, and the game was even better. The Frogs played their most complete game of the year. All three phases of the game dominated the Bears, and Kenny Hill was near-perfect. A healthy duo of Kyle Hicks and KaVontae Turpin made the Frogs unstoppable. Next up: Okie State and a chance to get bowl eligible.
Hey, Basketball Jones! It’s Hoops Season!
More history this weekend at Schollmaier Arena as Jamie Dixon makes his debut as head basketball coach for TCU. The Frogs take on the St. Thomas Celts Friday night at 6 p.m. Get there early; it’s bobblehead night. The Lady Frogs follow the men with a 8:30 p.m. game against Incarnate Word. Good luck to both teams – make it a great year.
Fans, your job is to be loud and “Shake ‘The Scholl!’ ”
More Friday on whatever comes to mind.
Kick ‘Em High!
