The following is another “Have Fun or Get Out of the Way” column by award-winning Don Leighton and Mike Granlund and their alter egos, Lance Boyle and Billy Pirkola, which runs occasionally in The Superior Telegram.
It’s been awhile since we have last met. For those of you who have missed me and enjoy reading Have Fun or Get Out of the Way, thank you. If you really don’t care, sorry, I’m back.
My alter ego Lance Boyle gets depressed when it snows, so it’s been tough living with him lately. Trust us, spring is just around the corner, I hope. Lots of stuff going on, so time to get you updated.
Wessman Arena will be the place to be tonight, Saturday and Sunday for the Douglas County Fish & Game League Sports Show.
Displays, seminars, booths of all kinds, the fish pond, experts from local businesses and great food are just some of the attractions. If that’s not enough, cowboy action shooting exhibitions by members of the Black River Bandits will make you ooh and aah.
Bring the whole family for a great time and stop by the Hunger Takes no Holiday booth to say hello and buy a bunch of $1 tickets for a chance to win a $300 gift certificate at Northwest Outlet. I’ve been told the greater amount of $1 tickets you purchase, the greater chance you have to win. All money collected stays in Superior and Douglas County to help local food shelves.
Second Harvest Food Bank turns $1 into $10 worth of food, or five meals for area residents.
Please help us.
The events runs Friday, 5-9 p.m., Saturday, 10-7 p.m., and Sunday, 10-4 p.m. Admission is $7, which is good for all three days, and all kids 12-and-under get in for free.
• The Tony G 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament will be held Saturday and Sunday at UW-Superior. Doors open at 9 and 10 a.m., respectively. There will be lots of great basketball for hoopsters of all ages, great food, a gazillion raffle prizes, and a chance to connect with old friends. Remember fans and players, this is in memory of one of the all-time-greats, Tony Gigliotti.
• And a final note. I am not in the Philippines and I have not e-mailed important documents for you to open.
Thanks to a hacker I will be getting a new e-mail address after my computer is returned from the doctor.
I apologize for this inconvenience to the millions of admirers of Lance Boyle. He is even more upset than I am.
However, if you would like to get me home, please send the $1,990 I have asked for. It will be greatly appreciated.
• As my favorite broadcaster Jack Buck used to say, “So long for just a while.”
