Denton Guyer has a new inflatable. It's a big black wildcat head with the team coming out of its mouth. It's massive, but oddly proportioned. It's really, really, really wide for some reason.

If you haven't left for Justin Northwest yet, you ain't gonna make it. I think there is traffic coming from the east and west for this Lancaster-Wichita Falls Rider game. Don't worry, though. I've got you covered.

Lancaster QB Demarcus Ayers decommitted from Washington State last night. Interesting move the day before a state semifinal. highschoolsportsblog.dallasnews.com

Half an hour till game time here at Midlothian for the Class 4A Division I semifinal between Denton Guyer and Tyler John Tyler. Guyer looking very Oakland Raiders like with its black jerseys and balck pants combos with silver helmets and silver numbers. John Tyler going with the white on blues with blue helmets and annoying white numbers.
Wind is going to be a factor here. It's blowing hard from the south, behind one end zone. One team will have it blowing in its face at all times.

The Wichta Falls Rider inflatable is amazing.

I've heard about it. $18,000

There's a strobe light inside of it, too.

The first time Guyer tried to inflate theirs they did so upside down. It took them about five minutes to figure out why the tunnel wasn't rising.

They've got it right side up today and it's quite a spectacle. Smoke, lights. It's like Studio 54 down there.

Have you seen Guyer play, Shedrick?
by Kyle Whitfield 12/15/2012 1:08:38 AM
El Campo not likely to win tonight, Josh.

Shedrick, believe me, it was a close pick. I've seen JT the last two weeks and have been very impressed, but I think Guyer matches up well. It could go either way.

Seeing the Lancaster inflatable (which I really do love) next to the Guyer inflatable is an interesting dichotomy.

Ooph, not Guyer. I meant Rider.
