The Moguls continue their season!

Well, it’s the time of the week when I’ve been posting my weekly football update. It was beginning to look like my story wouldn’t end too happily this week but the Moguls pulled off the victory by a score of 17 – 16. My son was matched up with an “overgrown gargantuoun” who was 6’8" and 282 pounds! He and another player double teamed him most of the night and I’ll tell you they did a great job. It wasn’t as physical a game as they played last week and the Moguls were rather flat. Everyone says that happens after playing at such intensity as they played last week. The Moguls didn’t play nearly as well as usual but they pulled out the “W.”
The team was escorted out of town to the game by the firetrucks and police – sirens screaming and lights flashing, as usual. They were greeted and returned the same way. This morning we all lined the downtown area to cheer the escorted team and band members on their way. We had about 4000 people on our side of the stands last week and this week – pretty good since our population is only slightly over 1500. The whole “Mogul Nation” comes out to support this team – of which we are thankful. Life in small town Texas can be pretty fun.
Oh, I must also tell you that the cast and crew members of the television show “Friday Night Lights” had on Mogul T-shirts at one of their rehearsals last week and a couple of weeks ago the stars came out to one of our play-off games two weeks ago. A Munday graduate works on the cast of the show and they are really supporting us which surely gives our kids a thrill.
Next week they play the Roughnecks from Sundown (that’s only about thirty miles or so from Lubbock, Texas and Texas Tech for those of you not from the Lone Star State). Sundown is undefeated like the Moguls and are really a tough team. I need everyone to start thinking good thoughts and saying their prayers for the Moguls now! Next week would be the semi-finals and we need to win to get to the state championship round.
Altogether now – cross your fingers!
