While covering a local basketball game Wednesday night, something struck me as a bit odd.
It wasn't the game itself. It wasn't even the work part. It was looking around and seeing so many faces in the stands that I have known for the better part of my life. I spent most of halftime talking to those people and it triggered a thought about alt/Texas country group Cross Canadian Ragweed's song "Seventeen."
In the song, the chrous' main line is "You're always 17 in your hometown." Strange that it would hit me at a basketball game, but still it did.
I know Stephanie, Diane, Donecia and Adam are all from around here, but am I the only Shreveport-Bossier City area native here at The Times that runs into these meetings while on assignment?
