one tuff coach, come on man, duct tape

the coach of the girls basketball team in the little town of 400 
people in west texas called lipan is one tough coach

her team won the game in the semifinals of the regional tournament 
afterwards she had to be rushed to the hospital where she 
delivered her 3rd baby without an epidural
within 15 hours she was back on the bench coaching her team to 
a come from behind 15 points victory in the finals of the regional
she then went back to the hospital after the game to continue 
caring for her new baby girl
the team came up later for a team photo 

they made it  to the girls state basketball tournament in austin 
this week (they lost in the semifinal game)

she was just like in the old days where women would have a baby 
and then go back to the fields to work 
one tough lady/one tough coach

she now has a new point guard for the high school team there 
in 2016

am from a small town in arkansas of the same size and 
understand how big basketball was to the community and to the 
other schools and towns that size-go hornets-they have since 
been gobbled up by consolidation

come on horns 
get it together
get er done today
get back on track
if they lose thats bad 
they may be toast
maybe a 5 or 6 seed in the tourney
that would be a big fall 
if that happens could barnes be in trouble 

make a circle of  duct tape with the  sticking side out and use it to
clean out all that junk left in your pockets-cookie crumbs, fuzz, 
cooties, debris, and those unknown particles 

saw a car parked at the clinic once with a duct tape stripe over 
the chrome stripe running down both sides of the car

  1. love the random tips for duct tape - especially how to get cookie crumbs out of pockets. :)

  2. The marching band always travels with a roll of duct tape. We use it to fix instruments, equipment and uniforms. Last year we taped a brim back to a hat just seconds before the band entered the field. Duct tape ROCKS!
