Upon relocating the annual EPAC tournaments to Greyhound Arena in Portales (from Melrose, where games were played the first three days), we felt like our longtime suggestion for the concession stand surely would’ve finally taken hold.

But, alas, the folks at Eastern still refuse to call their hot dogs by the names that would make those babies jump off the warmer: The Hound Dog.

Hey y’all… Eastern New Mexico University’s nickname is the GreyHOUND and surely you should sell hot DOGs at a concession stand. We’re just saying… Gimmicks appeal to hungry college students. Maybe you’d have a few more attend games if, when hit by the munchies, they would say, ‘Hey, let’s go get us a HOUND DOG!”

And watch a ballgame too…

In our frantic rush to get games covered at the Artesia girls soccer tournament, rushing from field to field to find coaches, players, etc… the folks who organized the hospitality room (and it actually was a room!) came through in the clutch.
