So after everyone was going their seperate ways today, the KC group were walking to their car when Lawrence News (channel 6?) slowly drove next to me until I looked over. The window was down and the guy in the truck said "your money or your life, I'm leaving with one of them...."


No, actually, that was a quote from a movie I (kinda) saw recently. This guy actually said "What do you call what you were doing?" I obviously told him Field Crumpets, we talked a little bit - he said that their sports group was pretty slow durring the summer and could probably pick up a story, he was there last week and told the sports group about us. I told him we were there Tuesdays at 6:30 - the originator was there and could answer questions, and we'd love to have a segment.

So I hope nobody minds - I invited lawrence news to our next tuesday outing. Let's see if they're cool like the Kansan or lame like Red Bull

That's very cool! I hope they make it either next week or the following one, because I then have to miss three straight Tuesdays of crumpets to help out my dad at his office. Good job bringing in the newsies

Do you have to work that late, or is the office out of town?

I'm helping at the office in the afternoon, then I'm actually going with him to help him out with a seminar class he teaches in the evening.

Well, they did keep their promise, Lawrence news was there today and I hope that they got a good story out of it. Lawrence natives should keep an eye out for the broadcast and tape it if they can, I'm not sure when it'll air though.

The crumpets club will be on Channel 6 News, Lawrence tonight at 6, 10 and midnight. If you can't catch it there, the story should also be on their web page tomorrow (www.6newslawrence.com).

Can someone record it? Or find someone to record it? I'd look it up online, but I think it would kill our computer. Or the computer would kill the website.

Very nice news story! The footage revealed some interesting things...

1) Once, when I hit the ball, it paused for 5 seconds, all blurry, and then it continued moving (technical difficulties for sure).

2) Remember that amazing, goal-saving, stickless, sliding grabbing-the-ball-with my feet move that I made as goalie? The one right in front of the goal that led to Joe beating on me and then resulting in an illegal trapping foul, which eventually the defense finally turned away?

Anyway, according to the instant replay... that should have been a goal, barely. at least half of the ball crossed the line, but the jumble of people was so chaotic that it was never seen by the naked eye. but man, that whole TV thing, that's pretty solid evidence! Robbie, you should give the team that point!

3) Aw, there was no mention of the website or when we play so I don't know how many new people will arrive via the newscast.

Still, it was very nice to see everyone having a good time playing crumpets on TV.
