McNeese Softball Burns Their Ships for Motivation

When he reached the new world, Cortez burned his ships. As a result, his men were well motivated.

That was the world's worst Sean Connery impression, but that was the inspiration for what happened tonight at the McNeese State softball field.

The Cowgirls carefully built their own wooden ships, decorated them and wrote inspirational messages on them, and then set them ablaze.

The ladies will now have to find alternative transportation to their season opener in San Diego on Thursday.
