Tradition, Dentoning and Homecoming

One of Denton’s most captivating characteristics to me is what happens when we come together. I find it almost magical. It is original and independent, unlike anything I’ve experienced anywhere else. We are a diverse and largely passionate people, and there are times when that can be uncomfortable, like when issues polarize our passions. What […]

Dog Days in Mean Green Style

Relaxing in the grassy shade, eyes closed, white and golden-blonde hair dancing in the breeze, Ellie is tired.  She works day-in and day-out without complaint.  Lifting her head to check perimeters, because she’s never really off work, she considers how long it’s been since she went somewhere just for fun.  “Too long,” she moans. Ellie […]

Mean Green Game Day is Winning

Everyone is talking about it.  Not enough touchdowns.  A head coach change mid-season.  It has looked to laymen like an unusual flurry of activity in what is obviously not the Mean Green’s most stellar season.  I’ll be honest:  I don’t know the whys about all that.
