Exit 20

Me and 2/3 of the sports parents in Louisiana spent our weekend in Lake Charles. I was crammed into the over-chlorinated Sulphur Parks & Recreation Facility with approximately 60 billion other people.

Not sure who was left in this hemisphere to attend Marsh Madness (LHSAA girls Final Four), the Barbe baseball tournament, or the travel tennis event, but if any of them were behind me while I drove like an arthritic sea turtle across the Lake Charles bridge, I apologize.

Gephyrophobia is the fancy name for the fear of bridges. The Facebook name generator says my Mohawk name is “Heap Big Chicken.”

Brian Williams taught me 17 bird languages when we were trapped in the Superdome during Katrina.

A big shout out to the birthday boy!

No wonder he swims so good-- he's part alligator.
