Plano, Texas… Go Ahead

October 2nd, 2008 · No Comments

I learned from Mr. Deaton last night that we have some followers in Plano, TX! And rumor has it that our friends from the South are looking for more frequent updates on the site.  Well, my friends… ask and you shall receive!  We’re all about those who support this team at and appreciate the fact that you’re enjoying the site and getting to follow Alec’s season from a distance.  After all… that was all part of the master plan.

So here’s the scoop… the boys practiced hard this week on Monday and Wednesday.  There was a lot more contact than usual given our bye this weekend.  Lots of hitting drills like “Oklahoma”, “King of the Board”, “Circle of Death” type stuff.  The kids also ran their little behinds off this week in an attempt to reacquaint themselves with the perils of the preseason conditioning program.  We parents totally appreciated that as getting the boys off to bed wasn’t an issue at least twice this week.

Tonight, we have team pictures up at the middle school.  I’ll snap some shots of the festivities and post them up to the site later this week.  They usually do a pretty good job with the pics and the player cards are incredible… like the NFL trading cards we used to collect as kids.  Really cool stuff.

Next week, we play the Rattlers.  The Rattlers are 1-1 and appear to be a pretty talented team.  This will be a good measuring stick for the kids as they head into the more difficult second half of the schedule.  It’s too early to pull out the Schwami Says nonsense, but I’m predicting a win in a close contest to move to 3-1.  It would appear that the Diablos are the consensus favorite to finish in first place in the regular season.  I’ll say this… I like our chances if we meet in the playoffs.  Lots of work to do before then though, so we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.

At any rate… thanks for your support and keep visiting for more updates in the near future.  Ryan should be posting a new video or two here shortly.  He’s a celebrity now (was on the news twice this week for mortgage loan modifications), so we’re not sure exactly when he’ll have the time to grace us with his theatrical genious… 🙂
