10:30am - Time to work out!

Throughout the week, certain shows are easier to produce because of sponsored elements. Certain things must run. Monday, its Top Plays at 6pm and our Mtn. Top Ten at 11pm. Wednesday's we have our Sykes players of the week.

It is now, 4:20pm, I still have to work on the UPike Top Five Play Contenders, we have a story put together on Buckhorn winning the All "A". And oh by the way, the Wildcats are ranked first in the Coaches Poll for the second time this year, so something on that will be in the 6pm. I have also been calculating this week's Mtn Top Tens for tonight and pre-producing the 11pm. I have to shoot a basketball game tonight at 7:30pm, so the more I can do before the 6pm is over, the better shape I will be in tonight.
