Hey....just wanted to take a moment and "promote" my Falcons store with merchandise for the team.

www.zazzle.com/gofcfalcons

Please check it out, tell me what you think, and if you like to, you can even buy something to help support the team.

Later.

A small bit of information for the board.

A player, Ethan Strode, on the Monroe County Falcons was involved in a car accident on (or about) 12 DEC 09, he was a junior at the school. He was lifelighted to Louisville where his condition went from critical to serious and progress was made in his recovery, he was even moved into a rehabilitative room within the last week or so.

I received the text this morning that last night, Ethan passed away and went to be with our Lord. He was a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at Monroe County High School and a nice young man by all accounts. Please pray for his family to find the peace that passes all understanding and that they find comfort in knowing, what I know.....that they will see Ethan again someday.

Thanks,
Bill

So sorry to hear about young Ethan. I've already said a prayer.

I checked out the store, looks real good, Bill.

Well, the rings finally came in. Here's a few shots of Tim's.











I'm so proud of those boys. First every undefeated team in school history and first ever three time 2A state champion. Way to go Falcons!

Kim and I will alternate. She'll wear it around her neck or I'll actually wear it. It's big on me, but if I keep my fingers curled it'll be fine.

We had debated about not wearing this one at all. We were talking with the coach about it and he said that it's a nice ring, a ring that Tim would have worn and showed off everywhere he went. Maybe even talked a little trash. So, we'll wear it.

Funny trash talk story about Tim and rings. After he got his second state ring, we were at our local Japanese steak house. It was me, Kim, Tim, and a few of his friends. There was a young man, about Tim's age that had on a 'Trigg County Football' shirt. Trigg County is one of Fort Campbell's big local rivals. Tim said to the young man, "I like your shirt." Just as the kid was about to respond, Tim held up his fist and said, "...but I like this ring better." All of Tim's friends couldn't believe that he had said that. It was funny. Was it appropriate, humble, sportsmanlike? Probably not, and Tim wasn't really like that.....but Trigg fans hate Fort Campbell and Tim just let it go.

I miss my son, my favorite football player in the world!
