Honing My Craft

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Surfing the web changed the course of my life. Twice. The first time, being about a decade ago when my mom stumbled across the “Today Show Kid Reporter Contest”. It was in 2009 when I was a finalist in that contest, that my opportunities in journalism soared exponentially. The second time was last November. My mom, again, stumbled across the “Al Neuharth … Continue reading Honing My Craft

The Thunder’s Options

Mid-Week Woes and Conference Strength Continues for OSU

The Cowboy baseball team enjoyed a 3-1 week, with the only loss coming from a home, mid-week tilt with Oral Roberts. The Pokes swept Kansas.

New Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame at Bricktown Ballpark

A suite down the left field line of Bricktown Ballpark laid vacant for years. Until the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame had an idea. The suite used to house a sports bar that allowed fans to eat with a view. Not a bad one for my money. The new location truly showcases the OKC MAPS vision. I know you’re asking, what in the heck is … Continue reading New Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame at Bricktown Ballpark
