That went on yesterday afternoon. It was a regional tournament game and the experience of both teams showed. Both these teams came to play. The game seemed to never be ending...the weather may have played on that. It was unbarring hot. I was sweating profusely and had to move into the shaded territory....which was where all the Southampton supporters were...I know, wasn't I lucky?!For the sheer fact I did not have an accent they all knew I was not from their area...and I kept clapping for Tabb. Well, both teams got runs in very early...and then none for the rest of the game almost. It was 1-1 for like over 9 innings. Both teams had opportunities to end it, but the other team always prevailed to get the 3rd out. Patrick Corbett almost had a homerun...it only need another inch, but turned out to be just a double. Norris and the Keg had a few good hit...along with many others, but still it all lead to outs. Pop flys were becoming a problem, no one was really catching 'em, it was a bit disappointing, but never really hurt the score. The game entered the bottom of the 10th and it looked as if the game was never going to end...though many wish it would already....I did!...It was hot! In the bottom of the 10th 3 tigers were on base, Corbett came up and as the paper read this morning: was walked intentionally then Kegelman came up and was walked unintentionally. I cannot recall how many outs there were...but it did not matter...it was a Tabb win. I can't help, but feel a little sympathy for the Southampton pitcher...that feeling must suck...but good job to Southampton. It was a game yesterday. We should do it every Memorial Day, the Tabb Memorial Day Classic. Tabb was able to do it again! By the way the Piped Phifer got the winning run again. No one can stop that kid...and he is actually in 9th grade and not a kid...just short. We were reminded that Southampton is a competitor and are kinda glad they're not in our district anymore. Next game is Wednesday, time: TBA, and against a current district friend: Jamestown. You can call it luck, moxy, skill, experience, but Tabb is still moving right along....so Marty O'Brien isn't this team cute?
We have some more regional action this evening, but these games are away...like kinda far...but are really important. The games all have to deal with football...or futbol...or soccer. Let's start with girls soccer. The is against Chancellor, their home, at 6 PM. I do not know much about Chancellor, but I do know a lot about Tabb. The Tabb girls soccer team played in the district tournament final. I am confident they can end up in a final game again...but it maybe not be too close...but distance does not matter. This team will play good anyway, no matter what the location...in a box with a fox...just name it Dr. Seuss! It was been a few days since the girls have played a game, much preparation has been put into this game. With this match, I believe, if they lose then the season is over. I am sure B-Jazz, F-Bomb, Kinetic Kinney, O, the Hawk, and the rest of the team has something to say about that! I know it is quite a ways away, but trust me sooner or later today someone will probably comment the score, so we'll have it. For now good luck girls soccer...,don't give Chancellor a chance!
The boys soccer team is playing in a regional game tonight also..and it is far away. They play Courtland, not at there, but Spotlyvania High...it must be closeby. The game starts at 7. The boys have not played even longer than the girls...so they have much more preparation than any team. They have been waiting a long time. The team got out too early last time and won't let that happen again. They are ready to play already...well wait no longer...the tigers will be unleashed tonight. Tabb boys soccer will be the garlic in Spotslyvania...lamejoke? Boys soccer are on a mission....a mission for a win. If they exit tonight they are not entering the building again...and people like Seanaldo, Maw-some, No-Mercy Mader, Real-Time Robby, and the rest of the time has VIP passes for this tournament, so can't lose them. I do not know about this opposing team either, but I do not think they have any VIP passes...Tabb boys soccer has a vision of a win...and hopefully it will become a reality. I may have this score too...I got connections on the team...though no wants to do an interview! Good luck guys tonight!
The Wiz Kid!....wait it's the other Wiz Kid...not the loser one who helps out this blog (the second picture.), but the first one his cousin who was drafted to the Oakland Raiders recently. Can't you see the resemblance between them?...So we are ditching our Wiz Kid and going for, of course, the famous one! Finally this blog will get recognition...star power! Celebrities will be around every corner! With the first Wiz Kid all we got was like...the Duke Dog! So see ya Wiz Kid...and hello Wiz Kid! I think this one can take this blog farther...wait I am not riding coat tails! The Wiz Kid is cooler not just in looks and personalities, but all around...and I have never even met the guy! Well...good luck...original Wiz Kid...you should've went to sports games with me!
That's all I got today. Good luck to all teams playing today and good job to baseball. Tomorrow we will have results and Quincy autopsy photos! A must read tomorrow...so do it!! Alright, have a nice day...I'm gone!
