Small Towns, Big Histories, Upcoming Events

June 23, 2009

This week I was tooling around Oklahoma and hit Prague, the hometown of baseball player Jim Thorpe.   I know that most of you have read about the incredible Sac and Fox sports hero.  He played professional baseball and football and was considered one of the most versatile athletes in modern history by winning Olympic gold medals in the 1912 for the pentathlon and decathlon.  Thorpe’s birthplace is Prague, Indian Territory, not more than 21 miles from Ada, Oklahoma, birthplace of “Salon Ada.”  (Sorry, for the crazy segue) but I just had to find a way to link this cool picture of Jim Thorpe, the town of Prague, and Salon Ada.  This weekend kicks off three days of literary and artistic events in and around 100_1482my home and I’ll keep you posted on all the hot gossip at the Salon.

And for everyone interested in Indian Fastpitch games, please keep posting at Miko Kings’ web blog with the upcoming tournaments that are scheduled at the tribal nations in and around Oklahoma.
