News, blurbs, links, and butts after the jump
Maybe the most exciting thing about this weekend (apart from football) is the debut exhibition of the Team Sports & Gymnastics team...squad...group...force...FORCE! Yes! The TSNG Force! Brilliant!
Anyway, the TSNG Force will be debuting their skills at the Oregon All-State HS Gymnastics Competition on Saturday. I'd think the toughest part about a fledgling sport like this is finding venues to perform and compete. So until TSNG catches on nationally (which it looks like it might), these exhibitions are the best we're gonna get. You can also check out the Force on Sunday, November 29th, at halftime of the Oregon-Portland State women's hoops game.
