DART says NO MORE

in
Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

I can hardly contain my excitement over DART’s newly-adopted NO MORE campaign. In case you missed my column last month, I explained that DART has decided to incorporate the noted and powerful NO MORE campaign which was introduced by Law & Order actress Mariska Hargitay. The public service announcements for this project are compelling, featuring many different television personalities, up close and serious as they proclaim, NO MORE!
NO MORE – “We don’t talk about that!”
NO MORE – “She was asking for it.”
NO MORE – “She must like it, or she’d leave!”

Mantle, Mays: who gets vote as best ever?

in

If I had a time machine at my disposal and could choose a certain era to visit in sports history, my first choice would be in the 1950s.
And it would have to land me in the city where this golden era shined at its very brightest: New York.
Oh, what I would’ve given to be a sportswriter wearing a credential for one of the city’s newspapers back in those days. And to have been assigned to be a beat writer covering Major League Baseball.

Behind a solid pitching performance by Phil Maton, Louisiana Tech took advantage of four UAB errors and put together a four-run inning late in the game to defeat the Blazers, 7-2, and tie the series at one game apiece on a rain-soaked night at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park.
Tech (17-18, 4-12 Conference USA) led 2-1 over UAB (22-15, 9-8 C-USA) after three and a half innings when the long-awaited thunderstorms made their way to Ruston and forced a 43-minute lightning delay.

Bulldogs armed with weapons again

4.19 sports2.jpg

Will there be more high-octane weaponry on Louisiana Tech University’s football team this fall?
It sure looks like that way.
A Bulldogs’ squad which scored 30 or more points seven times en route to a victory in the Heart of Dallas Bowl last year has some turbocharged players in tow to keep such scoreboard dismantling intact.
Here’s a Super Seven to file away during the off-season and keep handy once the 2015 campaign kicks off (we’ll take a look at a defensive Super Seven in the next blog):
