Border Country Sports-September 19th
Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Report, I'm Keith Harrington.
One minor change is coming to Borde Country Sports. After running the Monday Morning Hot List later in the day yesterday and getting many readers I have decided to move the feature to later in the day on Mondays. So the Monday Morning Hot List will now just be the Monday Hot List.
This will be a positive change as I will now not have to rush to research info to get the hot list done before headong to work in the morning and I can so a much better job. Also, I will be sometimes be able to actually take a much needed break one morning a week when there are no sports to write about.
So stay tuned later today for the Monday Hot List!
