Horseheads High Hoopsters – 109 Years Ago!

Scanning some never before seen old glass negatives from the Horseheads Historical Society Archives (I’m on the Board) and I came across this beauty from 1904. Wow! What? No Nikes?

“Artem’s Equalizer!”

Even though the Jackals lost a Heart Breaker Tonight, 6-5 in a Shoot-Out, here was one highlight moment:
“The Wings clamped down defensively and limited Elmira to two shots until just over three minutes remained. The Jackals turned to a reliable source for the tying goal. Karlsson worked the puck from behind Kalamazoo’s net to Artem Demkov on the doorstep and the third-year Jackals slammed home his team-leading ninth of the season. ”

Dallas ’63 Remembered………. Fifty Years Later.

In 1994 we visited my good buddy Mick Lowman & his wife Denise at their home just outside Dallas, Texas. While there Mick showed us all the sites related to JFK’s Assassination. Dealy Plaza, the School Book Depository (now “The Sixth Floor JFK Museum”), the Texas Theater where Oswald was captured, and finally good ole’ Lee -O’s final resting place.

Mick was so proud to have found the grave, as it’s location was never published or really made public knowledge…but Mick made it his personal Mission From God to find it. Whenever he had a chance, he drove from cemetery to cemetery, looking, striking up conversations with groundskeepers until finally one old boy wouldn’t tell him exactly where the site was, but gave Mick a few clues and BINGO….the Promised Land! Here I am, laying down & resting for a bit with Lee-O.

Interesting little side note, that as the word got out as to where the burial site was located, Cemetery officials worried about the possibility of the grave being plundered some day. I can’t remember the exact year this was done, but to thwart that possible outcome the Cemetery dug up the casket, dug the hole much deeper than usual, replaced the coffin and then poured a few dump truck loads of concrete on top of it. So short of someone using a nuclear warhead to exhume ole Lee-O…..He aint’t goin’ anywhere for a long, long time!

Today hell, all you have to do is Google it and there are the EXACT GPS coordinates below.

Rest in Peace JFK……Fifty years Later.

With 0.1 seconds left in today’s Third Period – THE EQUALIZER!

I haven’t posted much Jackals Hockey here in my blog lately…. and I think today’s exciting finish & great shots merit this post!
“The third period felt eerily similar to Saturday night with the Jackals bringing an unrelenting attack and Kalamazoo just trying to hold on. It took every last gasp for the Jackals’ offense to capitalize and tie the game to force overtime. Elmira had eight shots on the board before pulling Clermont for the extra attacker in the final minute. After a few unsuccessful tries to establish the attack, the Jackals’ Jordon Southron hustled in on the left wing. He sent a shot on net with three seconds to play that was knocked down by Canaata, but Rob Bellamy kept the play alive and Pietrus scored with no time showing on the clock. After the officials conferenced, the goal stood and Pietrus sent it to OT with his 15th of the season.”
