Twilight zone



Everything was just off, timewise, when Rockdale hosted Abilene Wylie in the first football game of 2011. First, it was the wrong day, Saturday. Then the game started in 111-degree bright sunlight at 6 p.m., 90 minutes sooner than usual. By the time it was halftime, the sun had just set, bathing the home stands, and the Big Blue Band’s Flag Corps, in a soft pastel hue. Things get back to normal this weekend when the Tigers travel to Salado for a 7:30 p.m. start against the Eagles.
