Mmmmmm, meat pies

I forget how much I like meat pies.

There isn't a whole lot that comes out of Louisiana, but meat pies are one of them. A few years ago I discovered Lasyone's in Natchitoches. We had heard that they make a mean meat pie. I had never had one before so decided to try them.

I had no idea they would be so good. From then on, trips to Natchitoches revolved around a stop at Lasyone's. And then they changed their operating times, and were no longer open for dinner. I haven't had a meat pie in about four years.

Last night after practice we went to dinner at a place called The Landing. My love for meat pies was rekindled. While I didn't get a full order, what I had was just enough to remind me of the deliciousness they possessed.

On another note, I practiced with the team last night. I was doing some post drills. It was about a 10-minute workout. This was the first time I have participated in full speed basketball action since that fateful night in Johnson Coliseum eight years ago.

Last night went slightly better. My left ankle is only slightly swollen. It wasn't as bad of an injury this time, but still hurt pretty good this morning when I woke up. I was able to finish the drill without anyone knowing.

I don't know that I will ever play full speed basketball again.

"That fateful night in Johnson Coliseum..." I'm not sure if I've ever laughed harder in my life at someone else's pain and suffering. An uncontested layup awaited, and you went down like a sniper took you out from the rafters. Just thinking about it now has me laughing. Good times (for me, not so much for you...)
