TAMU-Commerce Lions—111, Our Lady of the Lake Saints—64 LIONS now 3—0 in pre-season play!
“Themer, November 13, 7:00 p. m., at Commerce—#1 ranked in the Conference…..our guys play their first home game.” I received that text from good buddy, Harry Power, a week or so before the 13th, immediately accepted the invitation, and began counting down the days.
We left Harry’s house two hours before the game began and arrived at Commerce with plenty of time to hurry to LuLu’s for our pre-game meal—burgers, fries, and sodas. We even discussed with the cook our ideas concerning how to make this restaurant better—the building, not the food!
The first 10 minutes of the game were “back-andforth” close, but then we began to pull away, slowly but surely! It was the LIONS, 28—17, at the 7:57 mark of the first half.
