    Another tall, lanky Chris Crain out of Arkansas

    Posted by: Chris

    UPDATE: At the end of the post.


    ArkCity.net reports:

    "Winning our first home (tournament) game was really exciting," Arkansas City Christian Academy sophomore Chris Crain said. "We had a lot of fun. It was close, but we pulled through."

    As our most famous former governor likes to say, "I feel your pain, Chris." At least he's coordinated enough to play high school ball, and play it well it appears.

    I barely made the varsity squad for my Methodist Church in Memphis, and even there my career was stopped short by an untimely foot fracture on a rebound. (Our team doctor was a pharmacist and told me to "shake it off" and play the remaining three quarters.)


    Party-pooper North Dallas Thirty points out that Arkansas City is actually in Kansas, not Arkansas. It apparently gets its name from the river, not the state, although according to NDT, residents pronounce it "ar-KAN-sas" instead of "AR-kan-saw." How embarrassing for them, and for NDT for embracing such ignorance!

    So I got suckered in by the city name and the team's nickname, the Travelers, remembering the old folk song "Arkansas Traveler" and the Arkansas Travelers minor league baseball team in Little Rock that I cheered on back in the day.

    Mea culpa.

      Hmmmmm.....hate to be a wet blanket, but as an erstwhile resident of the Sunflower State, it is my duty to inform you of two things:

      1) Arkansas City is in Kansas, not Arkansas.

      2) Arkansas City's name is pronounced "ar-KANSAS", rather than "Ar-kan-saw"; it is commonly referred to as "Ark City".

      We now return you to your regularly-scheduled broadcast.

      In all fairness, though, there IS an Arkansas City in Arkansas, the state; they just pronounce it wrong. :)

      the main difference between these two Visvim shoes

      is the height of the shaft. The Tall has an cheap emuboots online shop

      11 inch shaft height while the Short is 8 inches. Both moonboots

      are made of Twin-faced Grade A Sheepskin and are lined in plush fleece. These 2 emuboots
