A Special Thanks to Mr. Rob Sisk...


On the eve of my oldest daughter's (Sabrena) wedding, a fellow Liberty University grad (Sabrena being the first grad) by the name of Rob Sisk made the day just a little more fun for me. Buffalo Gap tipped off their semi-final contest against Franklin High School at 11:00 A.M. down at the Siegel Center and Rob was looking for a different angle to cover the contest.

All I had to do was be willing to put my life in the hands of an oh so tired Jim Sacco for the drive down to V.C.U and jot down a few thoughts on the game. Any of you that listen to Jim and I talk about the game for 19+ minutes the day before can only imagine that the hardest part of the assignment would be to limit the piece to under 1,000 words.

Lucky for Rob I was needing to get down to Liberty for the wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner by 5:30. This and this alone saved Rob from having to break the bad news to me that the deadline for the paper was ... well, you get the idea.
