Yes, I am writing this in York County at my house. This is the old spot I use to write it everyday at! It has been so long, it seems foreign to come! I am glad to be back, writing the tabb sports blog in the George Mason computer lab gets kinda weirdsometimes...there are alotta creepy people in there...like more than me! I am back at the old writing station and the only thing that I have to worry about is Popcorn biting my ankles! So...how was Breaks-giving for everyone? I hope people actually celebrated my made-up holiday...we'll be expanding soon. I think it is a good holiday idea. We get to enjoy the wonderful food of breakfast, what a privilege it is to have it (back in the day only the royal consumed it.), and reminisce on the sacerfices made by Aunt Jemima. Okay, enough nonsense let's get to the real news already!!
FIELD HOCKEY FTW
FTW mean for the win, I believe. If you spend your time on the internet you might as well learn that by now! I do not know what is up with the weather around here. I barely get any rain up in DC, but around here it has been raining since I left! Are we at 40 days yet?! Due the precipitation the varsity played first last night...because...well...I don't want to sound mean...but they're varsity...the game was not lookin' pretty from the start...from the New Kent perspective. By halftime it was 10-0, once the game started again Tabb soon added 2 more goals making it 12-0. The girls were just trying to pass the ball around when their lead became so high, but the refs called a mercy and ended the game. I swear this is like Tabb's 8th mercy or something. They are going for the all-time mercy record along with all the other records they are pursuing. The Amazing Aymonin got one goal in, Ill Mills did so as well, C-Port got 2, Taylor Omweg pet the O in goal, the Hawk got one, the balled was Neffed in once, Mac-ed in one, and Wusked in 3 times! I gotta tell ya, Grace Wusk for MVP! For like the past 5 games she had has multiple goals each time! I guess what I said was right: you can't get a W...without a Wusk! Great job to the whole team. When all fall sports fall there is always Tabb field hockey! Next game is on the 27th at home at 7:00 against Bruton. Be sure to arrive early....there is a good possibility the game may end early!
Okay, that is a wee too harsh? Things are not incredibly bad! If you have not heard volleyball lost again last night. That is two in a row...this is the first back to back loss of the season...and it was against Warhill! Actually, Warhill has been on top lately! Ever since Poquoson, they have been everywhere! Warhill really wishes to extend their 15 minutes...and it seems like they are doing so! I am making it sound worse than it is. Warhill's new motivation and our jumbled feeling after an intense Grafton really affected the outcome. Our girls loss every game 25-21, 25-16, 25-21...there was no need for a 4th even! But 'Miracle' Liz Marifield 9 kills, block and Grace 'the Bear' Berardini 6 kills, 3 blocks...so not all was lost. Everyone has bad night....and Warhill has 3 minutes left. Like anythiing from Tabb these girls still put up a fight. The Forest Fire would still be proud! Disregrad last night and move on to the next game which will be on the 27th at Smithfield at 6:30. I doubt we'll see a third loss in a row...when Tabb does something 3 times in a row, it is usually win championships! Champions right here....champions for more than 15 minutes! Good job volleyball. Way to volley...or something like that!
AN OPEN LETTER TO VOLLEYBALL
We all know my history and that I never made a game last season...which is entirely my fault. I had many opportunties where I could have done so....I still feel bad about it. Unfortunately, this season is looking the same...it is not deliberate...I just cannot physically make a game. I could have came home early yesterday and stop by your game, but my class doesn't end until 4:15 and by the time I'll leave traffic will be insane and I would not have gotten to Warhill until like 8:30. Your games are always on Tuesdays and Thursdays and I am always in school. I do not see this working out. Play in a tournament nearby me like field hockey did! I am sorry for my actions last season, still, but I am trying to make it up and thinking about you guys. What if I go to a Mason girls volleyball game? Or someone can record one of your gmaes and I can watch it. We can think of something! I hope there are no harsh feelings. You guys do get mre coverage this season, so I am doing better. I am just trying to make things the best...speaking of which, best wishes!
This is Leo, the one who dares challenge Popcorn. Cat or not challenging Popcorn has not been so tough lately. He has been off his game....though he did do better last week...let's see if things come full circle and Popcorn is back to his old self again. Seriously, if not, we'll have to find a new purpose for him....and he is not good at much besides sleeping! Let's see what happens! Here are Leo's picks.
York 42 Jamestown 14
New Kent 21 Warhill 20
Bruton 28 Grafton 20
Lafayette 25 Smithfield 10
Poquoson 100 Tabb 0
Hmm...those look promising! It is official now. The picks have been casted. None can be changed, so we must wait until Monday to see whoever reigns victorious. If it is not Popcorn....anyone want a new cat?
Reminder: the football game is TOMORROW night. Come out, wear black! (important!!), have fun, and all that. We'll have more on that tomorrow....for now enjoy your Friday off!! Oh snap! I am ready! Shoutie saying what up to everyone at home, Martin's back!! He has been up since 5:30...bed time now for him! Have a good one. Good night...or morning?..
Peace be with you.
