Coaching Staff Mark Mangino, Head coach, eighth season (Youngstown State, 1987) No need to thank me.

Yea! We finally got a black man on here, not shooting someone. I wonder how much of an effort that took? Jump all over me if you want, and I know you will, but I just feel so brave persevering nevertheless, but the selection of people polled is not exactly diversified.

I'll be busy decorating a cake for Easter and hoping that little girls can keep their fingers out of the icing!

prospector, you know, when I was a young girl I went trout fishing with my grandfather. He had a set up in the garage where he would make his own flies. I was totally fasinated by that as well as by all the fishing gear. I got to be pretty good myself. Great memories!

Very well, I understand, however I still reserve the right to post my opinions. I will not reply to another posting. I will not attempt to be friends, after all, I have no idea who you people are. I know I am not cranky and I did try in all honesty. I have been put in my place. Thank you. Irish

Schula, I didn't see you! We sat about section 5 row 10. Shoot!

Beautiful day - lots of potential for another fun season!

Leslie Swearingen 8 years, 6 months ago

The link does not go to a photo so I don't know what I was supposed to see. Maybe just as well. I have nothing to make amends for. I am not Hermi. I am Irish. Period. Put a fork in this. It's done.

No. I had some dandilions to weed out of the yard.

Irish/Cleo/Hermione, your race baiting [above] is revolting, and actually makes the situation of blacks in our society worse but of course you don't really care.
