Weirdest thing seen so far at the girls state finals here in Memorial Coliseum: A man walking through the parking lot lugging a rifle.
Relax. No need to call 911. And no need to be nervous about the sign in the Coliseum lobby this morning, the one advising everyone that under no circumstances would anyone be allowed in the building with a loaded weapon.
That’s because next door in the Expo Center, while Canterbury was winning its third straight state title and Luers was battling Austin in the 2A game, one of those periodic Gun & Knife Shows was going on.
An odd backdrop to an historic day, indeed.
