Frightened or appalled by the prospect of walking up an escalator that dared to stop working, the lady stepped aside and allowed the guy with a frayed deltoid ligament on his left ankle and the other guy with a chewed up meniscus to hike up the stuck steps.
For almost five decades, I have been afflicted with Bear Fever.
Thanksgiving is next Thursday, and while some will be playing football or staying warm inside, I've kind of made it a tradition of mine to get out fishing for the early part of the day.
The fish took off with only a slight rhythmic list from left to right. The barb was stuck securely in its dorsal fin, which did little to stop his down-river run.
If you are one of the thousands of out-of-state hunters who have been coming to Montana to hunt with an outfitter, those days are gone.
Even before Del Oro boarded its bus in Loomis, the majority of the Sac-Joaquin Section knew what to expect from the Golden Eagles in their SJS Division-III playoff debut. East Union knew more so than anyone, yet the Lancers still had a job to do.

Since Buffalo Wild Wings opened, I'd planned on an afternoon of college football there.
Over the years, I've developed a habit of getting up early regardless of what day it was.
I was likely the only person in Northern California who could not stop thinking about Dwight Eugene Gooden during the San Francisco Giants' victory parade Wednesday in San Francisco. It was a young, gifted Gooden who escorted me towards my newfound greatest moment in sports.
I had breakfast with my external abdominal obliques Saturday. I had no choice.
Working with teenagers, I'm amazed at how many of them have never been fishing yet.
A ton of horror movies make me laugh - adolescent girls with unwashed waist-length black hair climbing out of televisions slower than a slug in salt and still catching dudes that appear to be capable of easily busting out a 5k run.
Duck hunters, beware. There are going to be anglers out on the water and you must not disturb their fishing areas. Unfortunately, it's the anglers that must beware as duck hunting season is now open. Over the years I've developed a sort of love-hate relationship with duck hunters. Once the hunting season ends many of the hunters' blinds are abandoned until the next year.

Since Manteca Unified School District has more high school students than Prince of Wales Island has residents you probably didn't hear about the 75-mile per hour winds that knocked out power on the entire island, isolating it from mail and cutting ATM machines off from the money bags that supply them. I contemplated calling mom's school weak for giving kids and teachers the day off in light of there being no power, because we've gone without power here for part of the school day, but the argument was a little too unreasonable.
I'm planning to take my daughter, son-in-law and grandkids fishing. We're going to a couple ponds up in the foothills near Lake Comanche that are loaded with Bass, Crappie and Bluegills.

The accolades keep pouring in for the East Union softball team.
I was never on a championship football team. I played on a few championship Little League and high school basketball teams, but in Little League I was a six-out, one-at-bat guy and in basketball, I was the eighth man in a seven-man rotation, so I did not really feel like I contributed.
