No Rainbows In Ruston This Week
Before I mention the Louisiana Tech game, I want to take the time out to honor a good friend of mine, Mr. Lee Fletcher. Lee succombed to the evil demon that is cancer Wednesday night. He was a completely selfless person that would do anything for anyone. When I needed to find a new path in life, it was Lee who reached out to me to join the TFG team. He was always completely supportive of me and my work. He never hesitated to talk about my talent and put me before him. He also wrote me, probably the best letter of recommendation I will ever have. He was loyal to everyone he befriended and especially the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. He loved them almost as much as life itself. He would have given the world to Tech if he could. It’s with that said, that I have decided to continue in Lee’s footsteps and give back to Tech as well as much as I can. This has already been discussed with Tech and is in the works. When Lee passed away at St. Francis, his tv was tuned into ESPN2, watching the Dawgs defeat the Warriors. The score was 24-6 on the screen when he passed. I will miss Lee Fletcher. May you rest well my friend. I will not let you down.
With the big fuss over the new SEC Media rules, and my not being able to show my LSU shots from this season, I completely forgot that I can blog my Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. With that said, week 2 of the 2009 season brought the Hawai’i Warriors to town. I believe Hawai’i had the #6 ranked offense in the nation and was riding a 60+ game streak of scoring at least 1 touchdown. Well, that all ended this past Wednesday night. The Dawgs showed up in force to ‘Red Out’ the Warriors 27-6, in front of a national audience on ESPN2.
Even the stars of ‘The Exterminators’ on A&E got in on the action. I couldn’t help myself. I had to get a picture with them. If you haven’t seen their show, you need to. It’s awesome.
