The Sports Page

The final score was 18-10. No, it was not a football game. It was the final to the Rangers' game last night. I think the pitchers forgot to show up. There are still a lot of games left, but the Rangers are in a bit of a funk right now.

Jack Nicklaus has agreed to join Arnold Palmer as honorary starters for the Master. I wish they would add Gary Player to the mix. As someone who begin following golf in the 60s, that will be a goosebump moment for sure. Hard to believe Palmer will be 80 years old on September 10th.

I used to keep up with hunting seasons, but haven't now for several years. I am assuming that dove season opened this morning. Either that or Decatur is being invaded. I could hear lots of shooting from my house. I don't know why I thought dove season opened after Labor Day.

Sunday night Beverly and I were sitting on the patio enjoying the unseasonably "cool" evening, and we heard some people practicing shooting (I am assuming). Someone had a gun that sounded like a machine gun -- reeling off 20 rounds or so in a matter of seconds. Shouldn't take long to bag their limit with that.

I was at the game last night and it was bad, then good, then bad again. I almost left in the 4th inning but stayed and watched the come back but then mistakenly stayed through the remainder of the beating.

Dove season does start today and I am missing a hunt because of an appointment I need to be at. No fair, no fun.

I quit watching the game in the 4th inning last night. I could take no more.

I've sort of stopped bird hunting in recent years, but I love the beginning of dove season because that means bow season is only a month away. I can't wait.

I didn't get to dove hunt this year. One of my co-workers attends a church that has a dove hunt each year. Perhaps, there's a germ of an idea there. I hope to get my food plot in the ground this weekend.
