  • FB Gordon at Strawn b8.jpg FWIW: Good, clean hate – Ranking the area's best rivalry games of the 2014 football season


    Football season is fast approaching and with it those glorious games between teams that love to hate each other, which we call rivalries.

    I'm speaking, of course, about sports hate – the only beautiful kind. It's the stuff built on history and tradition that inspires simply the fiercest and most entertaining games of every season.

    Palo Pinto County and the surrounding area have no shortage of fierce football rivalries.

    The University Interscholastic League's realignment often causes new rivalries to be born and old ones to be rekindled. But which rivalries are the area's very best for 2014? The one's you circle your calendar for and make sure you don't miss.

    I can think of at least 10.

    So, for what it's worth, here's my list of the area's best, can't-miss football rivalries of the upcoming 2014 season.

  • FWIW logo.jpg FWIW: Don't panic over the Texas Rangers' rotation

    The British government's World War II era phrase, "Keep calm and carry on," has grown somewhat cliche after it's recent re-popularization and superfluous parodies. But, for what it's worth, there may not be a better motto for Texas Rangers fans to utter to themselves as we enter the unknown landscape that is the 2014 Rangers' season.
