I’m on my way to the Smoky Mountains, I’d ask that you please don’t coordinate to rob my house. I’ll be gone for the week and as you might expect, I’m going to be light on posting and I’ll be recharging more than anything else. I can definitely say that I won’t be doing the Morning Stake every morning, but I will make sure and have an open thread so that you all will have things to discuss, post on your own, and generally spread as much positivity as possible. We need it.

Texas Tech Baseball
Texas Tech baseball lost to Florida last night, 9-6, and is eliminated from the College World Series (TexasTech). Helluva run for these guys without your best starting pitcher (Steven Gingery) and another starting pitcher (Erikson Lanning) for most of the year. I never envisioned this run with the current team. I’ll have more to write about with this team, but I’m leaving my house as soon as I hit publish (same thing with Zhaire headed to Philly).
Texas Tech Basketball
Your guy, Zhaire Smith, was drafted 16th by the Phoenix Suns and then traded to the Philadelphia 76ers (TexasTech), which is terrible news for our Michael LaBarre who is a die-hard Boston fan. He’ll be forced to love a little bit of the 76ers.
