For many years the sport luncheons were listed on the Athletic site with the speakers for the luncheon and the athletes of the week. I know that the luncheon yesterday was the first of the year but a lot of times last year there was nothing on the site. I wounder who is responsible for that? The attendance has dropped over the past several years but they should put the info on the athletic site to see if more people would come.

Not even a freshman who ran for over 100 yards, including an 83-yard scamper where no one could gain an inch on him in the chase to the end zone and ignited a brief surge of confidence which lasted until we couldn't get anyone within 18 yards of the point where a punt returner was fielding a punt?

I am not buying here in MA but have been trying to sell for the past year and a half. Had a contract earlier this year but it fell through at the last minute. Now we have had another contract for about six or seven weeks now and we had a tentative closing date for Friday the 16th. That might just get pushed to sometimes next week. So we are meeting with our lawyer on Thursday morning and will give him a power of attorney to take care of it so that we can head back to NC on Sunday and not have to come back. We need to get back to NC by Tuesday to take care of some stuff with our new house there.

We also have had my late mother-in laws house for sale for over two years now. We have some people doing a rent to buy that was supposed to happen by the end of this year but the people have had some issues they probably won't be able to resolve before the end of the year so we might have to extend the lease for another six months. Nothing is simple these days.
