Last night Steele beat the New Braunfels Unicorns 38-7. I was kid-free again (getting spoiled here!) and enjoyed not getting slimed by blue sticky drool, not changing any “hot loads” as Rex likes to call them, and not having to police three little monkeys! Probably the most surprising thing about the evening was the cold… Continue reading Knights Defeat Unicorns
Abhaya. It means fearless in Sanskrit, the language of yoga. And it’s on a necklace that I wear all the time. And as I put it on today, it struck me that this was exactly the attitude that the Steele Knights needed to adopt heading into tonight’s game against top ranked Judson. Abhaya. Fearless. Tonight… Continue reading Steele Knights Defeat #1 Ranked Judson!!!
Tonight the Steele Knights defeated the O’Connor Panthers, 45-24! It was an awesome game and I actually got to watch the whole thing because my children weren’t there, LOL! One of my college roommates published her first novel, The Changelings, and her book launch party was this afternoon in Austin. It was too tricky for… Continue reading Knights Win & New Football Swag
Wow! What a great way to start the 2016 Steele Knight football season with a 37-7 win over San Antonio’s Madison High School! The Knights played a great ball game and we all enjoyed it once that brutal August Texas sun went down during the first quarter. Prior to that, it was probably the hottest I’ve… Continue reading 1st Knight Football Victory of 2016!
It’s what I call Football Eve…those last few days and moments before the first game of the new football season. The excitement, energy, and nerves in the air is almost palpable. It’s the proverbial “calm before the storm.” And as it so happened, tonight was our annual all school outdoor pep rally, “Meet the Knights,”… Continue reading #BeElite
Tonight Steele defeated Del Rio, 28-10 in an obscenely cold and windy game (and a bit wet too)! We’re talking wind chill probably around 35 degrees max and misting “rain.” I’m very glad that I left the littles at home – they *I* would have been so miserable! Things were definitely rockier than the average Steele… Continue reading State Quarterfinals, Here We Come!
Today the Steele Knights defeated San Antonio’s Brennan Bears, 38-7. It was a 2pm game which was awesome because for once it wasn’t almost midnight when we got home. When you have three kids ages 3 and under, you consider this to be a huge treat! Besides the Knights’ usual stellar performance on the field, the most notable… Continue reading Onto Round 3!
For the second year in a row, we played San Antonio’s MacArthur in the first round of playoffs, and again we defeated them, tonight winning 62-13 (read last year’s post here). It was a great game, and like always, the Knights made some huge plays (I saw the Steele Knights turn two interceptions into TD’s and also return… Continue reading Knights Win 1st 2015 Round!
Tonight the Steele Knights not only were crowned District Champions of arguably one of the toughest districts around, but they did so with a perfect record of 10-0! Next week we head into the playoffs against San Antonio’s MacArthur (we played them in the first round last year as well) with a home field advantage… Continue reading District Champs: Knights Score Perfect Regular Season, 10-0!
After the game I asked Scott, “Three words. Tell me three words to describe what just happened.” And all he could muster was three letters, “Wow.” And if you were there, you know exactly why this was his response. And pretty insane… it was one of the Top 10 games this week…in the COUNTRY! Check… Continue reading A Crazy Night at Lehnhoff Stadium!
