  1. Who really cares about Covid any more. Masks don’t stop viruses, just our freedom. We Americans would never follow such ridiculous orders from an abusive authority. We would fight back and refuse. Or maybe we are more like sheep than we think. What color shirt should I wear on Friday, sir? I’m sure it matters.

  2. The journey began in December of 1997 when my dad and I attended my first Lobo game. That game just happened to be the state championship game against Katy. I remember the atmosphere, pregame and the band. However most of all I remember the fans, the barking, howling fans and the train horn. Everyone remembers a missed opportunity to win a state championship. I remember how I got hooked on Lobo football. Each year we would follow Longview until they lost, not ready to end the season we would look at the remaining playoff games. After deciding which game to go watch, off we would go until

  3. Hello smoaky friend. Just wanted to say that if you live in the east Texas area and are unable to get out and get the things that you NEED then feel free to contact me and I'll volunteer my service to you. I have a few masks and enough gloves that I feel fairly safe to help you get your neccessary groceries or prescriptions. I'm offering this help for free to anyone here in NEED. If you are needing assistance then please feel free to send me a message and I'll do whatever I can. Do not risk getting outside if you don't have the proper PPE. I'm am fortunate enough that I do

  4. About every year at this time I post an old article I wrote about playing my last game of varsity football and what a high school football coach meant to me. It's long, but I've always received tremendous feedback from the membership and from high school football coaches throughout Texas. So, here it is... Merry Christmas! Smoaky ===== Dear Coach, I've been fortunate enough to have played the game of football in this state, and yes, before you smirk, many years ago (late-70's) at Universal City Randolph. As a military brat, I played for three high schools in fou

  5. The health effects of the virus are way below predictions, but what we are now doing has a powerful sociological effect on people. The fearfulness needs to stop and the pandemic needs to be declared over.

  6. I did my own research from what the CDC has given us:.4% of the US population has contracted COVID-19.The death rate of 30-39 age group accounts for .2% of all deaths from COVID-19.The next age group up (40-49) accounts for .4% of all deaths from COVID-19.In NYC of the 309 deaths of 30-39 year olds, 240 of them had underlying conditions, 40 more they were unsure about. Only 26 died with no underlying causes. Ages 15-24 have had a total of 48 COVID-19 deaths. That is .7% death rate among kids that get infected. Meaning 7 people out of every 1000. And since we are going crazy with stats,

  9. So it's ok for kids to be on a football field, playing a game, that has no social distancing involved, where there's sweating, spitting and maybe even some blood, but yet they are going to empty a stadium of fans that they decide have broken protocol rules because the powers that be want to tell us they care more about the kids than the parents and fans do? Smh I'm all for the kids playing, and I'll wear my mask, as I do each week, but please don't tell me we need to enforce mask wearing because we care about the kids. If the kids are fine on the field, then I'm fine in the stands.

  14. It is not going to go away. So we can either close down everything for a long time essentially shuttering our way of life, and risk the collapse our entire governmental & economic systems. Or, we can accept the fact that people are going to get it and just try to do the best we can to be careful and limit the spread as much as possible and move forward with life.

  18. amazes me how people can actually claim this is political--Use just a little common sense--The entire worlds economy is going to hell. Italy has shut their entire country down. No school, no colleges, no business, and everybody in lockdown. And you believe they are doing this to change our election. That is absolutely the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Nobody in Italy gives a rats …. who wins our election Are we over reacting? Yes!! Wild panic as people get in fist fights in Walmart over toilet paper, media causing a lot of the panic but to think the Democrats, the media or anybody el

  20. Money isn't everything!! He has a system set up, coaches in place where he wants them. He has built a football factory and has total autonomy. Talking to some of his assistants that coach other sports, they are happy being assistants and winning. Carthage is a very nice community to raise a family, a good school district and cost of living is pretty low. All of us should aspire to be in that kind of situation.

  22. Congratulations to Argyle on a great season and a great performance in the State Championship game! That’s a great team! Well deserved. Congrats to Lindale on a wonderful season that had a lot of people in East Texas rooting for them! Best performance Lindale has ever seen, and the kids and coaches should be very proud.

  23. It was a good game with quite of few close calls that could have went either direction. BunzT you are right....if Pewitt would have gotten the 4th n 1 we would be talking about the dropped TD pass by EF and the missed extra points...the EF penalties that kept Pewitt drives alive. The ball just didn’t bounce the Bulls way. I wouldn’t be a ref for anything. Great season Pewitt. Great comeback and Good luck EF.

  24. So, President Trump goes through almost four years of non-stop bogus attacks and investigations including the phony Russian collusion hoax, the corrupt Mueller investigation, illegal spying on his campaign, attempted undermining of his Presidency by anti-Trump planted whistleblowers, corrupt outgoing intelligence agencies trying to set up the President, a phony and corrupt impeachment farce, disgraceful and unrelenting character assassination of his nominees for various positions and generally total opposition and obstruction of his pro America agenda ..... Now Pelosi and Upchuck Schumer are t

  25. I must admit I am very blown away by the amount of information and prefacing LoboFan07 has painstakingly organized in a concise manner for all of the readers of this thread on Smoaky. I tip my hat to you Sir.......what a magnificent piece of work you have assembled for all to absorb for this upcoming clash between football titans. I will reread the information to allow it to soak in a little more......since I'm not privy to the legacy of your beloved Lobos. I am very familiar with at least the last 20 yrs. of the history of Highland Park Scot football since I'm an Argyle fan and from the Me

  28. Most programs, if not all (if they are being 100% honest) have a few positive cases. Cmon everyone knows it’s ex-Alto coaches now in Frankston still butt-hurt from getting fired are the ones who made the “anonymous” call. And instead of basing decisions off of facts from upper Alto administration, Winona goes with un-named caller. I’m NOT from Alto but I am a fan. Let the boys play or cancel your season & give them time to reschedule so you don’t do this to another group of boys who just want to play some ball.

  29. One case does not shut down anything. Most schools play on! Alto ISD "follows all state and local protocols, expectations, and policies in regards to safety of our students, staff, and community during our current situation." The bottom line is Winona did not want to play and it should be a forfeit; it will be in district. Their sub-varsity teams showed up to play but were turned around by their administration ten minutes before kick-off. The timing reeks. Our players, cheerleaders (big huge run-through sign!), band (brand new show!), and flags have worked their butts off all week prepar

  32. If we are going to cancel games every single time there is a possible exposure, then it will never be safe to go outside and play ever again. Ever! Nothing but fear and soon they are going to try and mandate Covid vaccines for all. Stop the madness. High school dreams are being ruined in all sports as the insanity rules. Where are our leaders? Too scared? I guess they are all just followers.

  34. Donald Trump's actions and record over the past 3+ years have been exactly what this country needed. I don't like his personality and I cringe at some of the things he says ... he's not a great communicator ... but I thank God he was elected instead of Hillary Clinton ... if congress would stop obstructing his pro America agenda, he would really do some great things. The pathetically dishonest and relentlessly brutal media coverage he has received from 95% of the media has been unbelievable ... I just hope the President that follows his 2nd term is half as good for America as he has been ...

  35. Open it up all the way. Schools, economy, restaurants, bars, and every other thing. Expose yourself. Build up a herd mentality. What’s the point in living if your hunkered down listening to fear mongers with an agenda. Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed for anyone. When you were born you were issued an expiration date. Good Lord wants you He’s gonna take you. Wu Tang Virus or eating a tree from hydro planing. Does it matter? Living scared isn’t going to do anything but make it worse. I love telling you about infection rates going up, but fail to mention death rates dropping. Those immune systems are p

  37. This whole shenanigans about locking down the country had nothing to do with “health”. It had everything to do with saving face since we are one of the world leaders in medical research and treatment. What has being in quarantine done? Nothing except shut down the economy and delayed the inevitable. People will continue to get sick. People will continue to die. The percentage rate on that is very very low. This 25% stuff is horse too. Open it back up at the risk of the employer, workers and consumers or don’t do it at all.

  39. I don't think over 40,000 deaths in less than 2 months could be labeled as "stupidity" but that's another conversation. Almost every country in the world has had some form of lockdown....so we aren't special in that respect. But.....even with those (still rising) numbers..... I think we will have football by fall. However.....I have a feeling that high risk populations (older and the ill) will be asked to stay home longer... but I think the general population will be out and about normally. So crowds will be smaller.....not as many grandparents in the stands. I'm willing

  41. By GARY STALLARD/Contributing writer Feb 21, 2020 I still remember the day they brought home my baby brother Jack. I remember because I was mad. I already had a brother. I wanted a puppy. As my baby brother, it became his appointed duty to follow me around. He was the classic tag-along: If I headed out the door, my parents made sure he went with me. I don’t think they had any idea just how much trouble he, our brother Randy and I could generate. Fro
