We see it all the time. Hurricanes, tornadoes, alien invasions…everybody has left town except the police, fire and rescue and some silly news reporter.

After I was asked to contribute art to a charity event I got with the Dallas Sidekicks and came up with this drawing of Tatu for him to sign. Tatu (Antonio Pecorai) was one of the most popular and prolific players to ever play the American version of indoor soccer. He was famous for taking off his jersey after each goal he scored and throwing it into the stands.

I first came across Tatu when I officiated Tampa Bay games in the ol’ NASL and refereed him as a player and coach throughout his career. While he might get “excited” if he didn’t agree with a call or two he always treated officials with respect. Well, almost always. He is still coaching in the Dallas area.

Pastor Roy Quill

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 10:49 pm

I joined my current church when I was in the 6th grade. It was about the same time that Roy Quill became the Pastor. I grew up with him as my mentor. Back then the youth group was called the “Luther League” and Pastor Quill was very active in its leadership. The times at summer camp in the Texas Hill Country were always entertaining and inspirational. As a young adult I would frequently go to him with perplexing philosophical and theological conundrums and he always had a succinct and reassuring response. When my wife and I lost our infant daughter his support and care was more than anyone could ask for. He will always have a special place in my heart.
