Topics On "The Ticket" This Morning


- Should "stay at home" moms [grammar corrected] have maids?

- Weren't gym scoreboards interesting as a kid? If we traveled to some big school (Burleson, Azle, etc.) it was always intimidating because they would have a state of the art scoreboard. Then you'd travel to some beaten down school district and find the scoreboard with half its lights burnt out ("is that a 1' or a '7'"?)

- And then the story of a U2 concert where Bono asked the crowd complete silence. He then began clapping his hands in four second intervals and, at the end of a minute, proclaimed, "Every time I clapped my hands, a child died in Africa." Which prompted a lone voice from the audience to yell, "Then stop clapping!" (Probably urban legend, but funny.)

I woke up with a little Bono this morning and I had no one to Cher it with.

If the Stay at Home Moms can afford maids, go for it.

7:49, please rephrase. Your comment makes no sense. Why treat moms as possessive? It's not indicated as such in the blog. Eh?

If you can get away with having a maid and you're a stay at home mom, I say go for it. I, unfortunately, have not been able to pull that off...yet. ;)

I remember playing b-ball in Lake Worth, where the home AND visitors' seats were on one side of the court and there was a stage on the far side.

Springtown's gym had like 1 foot between the out-of-bounds lines and cement block walls. The referee had to move the defenders back to allow for a fair chance to inbound the ball on out-of-bounds plays.

And then there was Jacksboro, they had a linoleum tile floor and a ceiling so low you would hit the rafters if you tried a long pass down court.

Then there were the times we'd go to the "big city" gyms in Boswell and Weatherford. They both had real nice gyms with lots of space around the court, high ceilings, lots of seating and dressing rooms that didn't have that nasty sewer smell.

Heh. That sounds like gym from an old junior high back in Wichita Falls...Zundy Jr. High if I remember correctly. There may not have even been a foot between the wall and the line.

I guess they must have built the gym, put the stands in, THEN thought about how big a basketball court was...
