Minor League Baseball Returns to Waco?

Dear Lord,

We haven't spoken since the Lady Bears overtime loss to the Lady Wolfpack in the 2007 Lady Tourney. That loss was tough on both of us. However, the silver lining in that dark cloud was Mulk's $10 million/10 year deal.

But today I ask for Your forgiveness of my wicked ways and that You would grant me this one, final prayer: bring minor league baseball back to the 254. The Waco Pirates entertained generations of Wacoans and helped solidify our identity. The loss of the Pirates occured following the tornado and, predictably, its been downhill since then for fair Sironia. If, as the WacoTrib suggests, You plan on bringing minor league ball back to this diminutive metropolis, we promise to cut back on the whiskey and interns and begin attending Antioch again. Also, no more dogfighting - we promise.

  • How quickly some forget!

    Mulk's Lady Bears defeated the Lady Mocs in the first round of the NCAA tournament. BU then lost to Kay Yow's NC State Wolfpack in overtime.

  • Scamp,

    Welcome back! That error was intended to lure you out of your hiding place. Mission accomplished and I can now change it back.

    Sic 'em, Editor-at-large, Scamp!

  • The undefeated Grand Prairie AirHogs welcome the challenge from an underfunded, undermanned Waco team. (Yeah, yeah, they didn't listen to me when they chose the name.)

  • Hi, Red!

    Yes, I'm in hibernation, watching Sophia Young play in the WNBA, waiting for the Lady Bears' schedule, and counting the days until Mulk's book comes out.

    I've ordered "Won't Back Down" from both amazon.com and bn.com. See link below for more info.

  • That book will probably transform this blog. I assume it will severely disrupt our football coverage. Wow.

    Thank you,

  • I have already ordered one for each of our 57 full-time interns(I should make a tidy profit after reselling them at twice the wholesale price) and another two dozen for the Alico's restrooms.
