3 quarters late for the BEST GAME OF THE SEASON!
I headed to Falcon Gymnasium at a little before 6:00
p. m. to be the “Falcon in the Stands” for the Varsity Game at 7:00 and stopped in the foyer to chat with the Concession Stand workers (North Forney Basketball Boosters—Elia Summers, La Manuel Jackson, Lashun Daniels) and then the ticket-taker, Cindy Nix, who asked if I had let Sonya out of the ticket booth at the soccer game, and I waited to go into the gym until the buzzer for the 4th quarter to begin. “Man-oh-man,” I should have rushed in earlier, but I stopped to compliment Mrs. Nix because she pronounced CLAYBON correctly—“klay—bunn” with 1st syllable emphasized.
I found a seat in the middle of Falcon fans and behind our bench so that I could absorb the atmosphere of both the court and stands! Our Jr. Varsity Boys Basketball Team was leading Poteet, but not by much, and it appeared the two teams were pretty evenly matched!
