    Happy Memories of Old Scribe

    It's Old Scribe's birthday today and I thought a nice way to remember him would be to highlight one of the blog stories he wrote for us here on TFH. With Father's Day just around the corner, maybe this one would be appropriate... Remember your grandpa? Entry posted by old scribe · July 15, 2013 Some of this may have been mentioned in past years, but bear with me: Since I go back further in time than anyone here (I know we are in the ``common era," but I grew up in what was surely an uncommon era), I will relate some memories of my grandfather Milner (the grandfather who didn't know Wyatt Earp). He was a farmer and boss of a thresher crew mostly, though during the Great Depression he moved into town (Henrietta) and opened a garage. So that was my first memory of him. He'd let me pump gas up into the glass tank at the top of the gas pump, which was a thrill for a 3-4-5 year old kid. Then when WWII came along, and gas and tires were rationed, he went back to farming. Through it all he drove the same 1934 Chevy pickup. We lived in Tulsa 1944-48, but either by car or train I got to Henrietta each summer. Remember being at the station in Denison (always a big rail center) in 1945 and waiting for troop trains to go by so that our passenger train could procede. I guess the troops were moving moved west as the European war was ended and we still had the Japanese to fight. More...

    Kendall Rogers tweet BREAKING: Sources have informed me that @TCU_Baseball head coach Jim Schlossnagle has pulled his name out of the @HailStateBB job and will remain at #TCU. That’s huge news for the #Frogs on the eve of the draft.

    There may be stuff going on in his life that's not public knowledge. Let's not judge the guy for making a decision that he thinks is best for him and his family under the circumstances. Schloss and TCU have had a mutually beneficial relationship for many years but nothing lasts forever. Heck, GP almost left for Arkansas a few years back and would've left if they hadn't decided to go with Petrino instead.

    Kendall Rogers @KendallRogers BREAKING: In some extremely surprising news, @TCU_Baseball gets great news for a second-straight day. Sources tell me that pitching coach Kirk Saarloos will no longer entertain @RiceBaseball and has agreed to stay put at #TCU. What a two-day period for TCU baseball. Wow

    TCU Tennis 2017-18

    Yeah, unless your country is involved, most people don't follow Davis Cup all that much anymore. Which is why they're massively changing the format in future years. The qualifications and the Groups will work the same for countries like Mexico, but the World Group is going to be converted into a 16-team tournament that takes place only once a year for a week or two (I think) in September (or at least late in the season). This supposedly will free up some weeks earlier for other tourneys to be played and also make participation by top players more player-friendly. We'll see. France beat Belgium last year in the finals and Pouille, who is the highest rated French player, was one of the stars of their team. There's no shame in losing to #16 and Cam had a good clay season, even though he only went deep (semis) at Lyon in singles and only played once (Estoril championship) in doubles. He's playing the top guys - getting some experience. On the broadcast yesterday, they said he's made the fastest rise from college to the Top 100 since John Isner over a decade ago. He's caught the attention of the tennis world in just one year as a full-time player. And he'll have a LOT of support in England next month.

    The Myocardial Infarction thread

    So just to keep everyone in the loop, in April, my main man Dr. Keylani saw something he didn’t like on an angiogram and installed a stent in my left anterior descending coronary artery (also called “the widowmaker artery,” because if you get a blockage in that one... well, the name is self-explanatory.) That’s five stents now, for those of you keeping score at home. Not bad, but nowhere near a record, apparently. The good news is that the existing stents are all squeaky clean, and according to Dr. K, my widowmaker is now “wide enough to drive a truck through.” I got the green light to start running again yesterday, and as an added bonus, I’m going back to cardiac rehab to get tortured by Sanjay, the exercise physiologist that put me in the best physical shape I’ve been in in my life. (Mrs. Turk is looking forward to my renewed buff-itude.) Short version: go see your cardiologist regularly and let the system work.

    I've not managed to stay at one job for 15 years. Most people don't, and particularly college coaches. The man might just need a change of pace. Pretty sure that's what brought our current basketball coach to us. It works both ways.

    TCU Tennis 2017-18

    The college tennis season wrapped up yesterday with the finals in both the individual singles and doubles championships (it's kind of weird that tennis lasted just a little longer than TCU's baseball season). In a bad sign for the rest of college tennis, the dominant Wake Forest Demon Deacons closed out the singles championship, with Petros Chrysochos beating Borna Gojo 6-3, 6-3 to take the title. Chrysochos is a junior and Gojo is a sophomore, so if they both return next year, expect Wake to once again be the team to beat. In doubles, UCLA's Martin Redlicki and Evan Zhu beat Ohio State's Mikael Torpegaard and Martin Joyce 6-7, 7-6 (11-9) to take the title - Redlicki and Torp are seniors and this was their last NCAA competition. The final ITA rankings will be released tomorrow. All of the various players will now be scattering to play disparate Futures tourneys all summer which will make following college tennis much harder because they'll be all over the world and will get little publicity. I'll try to follow the Frogs as best as possible.

    TCU Tennis 2017-18

    Believe it or not, Cam Norrie just beat John Isner (yes, that John Isner - ATP #10)) at Lyon in the quarter-finals 7-6, 6-4 and has advanced to the semi-finals of one of the last tune-ups before Roland Garros. He is now scheduled to play Frenchman Gilles Simon (ATP #75), who once (2009) was ranked as high as #6 in the world. Needless to say, this is a massive upset W for the Camster and will almost certainly propel him into the Top 100. Isner is notoriously weak on clay, but who cares? Isner always wins his serve, but Cam converted on the one break point opportunity that Isner gave him. And Cam saved all 4 break points against him. The British media is going gaga about it. #BacktheBrits. Earlier today, Cam tweeted "work until your idols become your rivals."
