ROLL WITH IT
Contrary to what you heard I am still here. First day of class did not ware me down…talk to me like on the 40th day…or a few days before!...or the first time I have to write an essay this semester! I do have all this free time. I mean my classes have not yet kicked in yet and this week there are like no sports…so I can really just ramble more than usual. I mean…um…is it weird to have a purple phone? I have one. Purple is my favorite color. Is that strange for a man? It means nobility…and not other things! My floor has not had an RA for like 2 days…I really don’t even know what is going on right now…so seniors who is ready for college?! Okay, that is a joke…but seriously no RA…my hall is proving how we can be new governing body…it is like Egypt, but a year later…and smaller…and no riots! Isn’t this open range of discussion, great?! Fine, we will start today’s entry for real…no seriously, nothing is wrong with purple!
Um…aren’t we at our 1st and 2nd period exams…and our first half day! There is some good out of it! Last year I did provide exam reviews, but I do not want to do the same entry I did last year, so with a majority of your exams remaining I will provide a brief clear cut summary of everything you need to know to study. My holds bar…I am going to be absolutely honest with everything
- History – everything in this subject has already occurred, as long as you know everything that already has done so, you should be good. And if there is a question asking how people felt about a certain event or person or something like that…well you do not know the opinions of everyone, so everything should go.
- Science – everything in science is based on a theory…there are NO facts…so the possibilities are endless.
- Math -…math blows…just learn how to pay taxes and balance a checkbook and you are good…I cannot help you.
- English – I know some books aren’t the best, but as long as you know the basic ideas of ‘em you should be good…and grammar sucks for everyone…it does not exist in this blog!
- P.E. – do you guys even have an exam…I am sure it won’t hurt your good that much…just try be like Baggett as best you can…and that should at least you get you an A-.
- Other classes – I cannot speak for all these elective classes…I didn’t take all them…art, marketing, - I never did. I don’t know…yesterday I just said to believe in yourself…so…y’know…Tebow it!
I gave you an exam review for life kids! This is how I figure stuff out at college…and I have a 3.3…well last semester…I just want this week to go by so I have something to something legitimate to write about…so I guess my real tip is: just go as fast as you can!!
Who is ready for Friday? Anyone? Anyone? I am 110% ready…everything this week leads up to this game…Tabb vs. Lafayette. If you cannot remember the Rams beat us by like 12 last time…but now it is like 12 games later…or about 12…granted it has been awhile. Tabb has started to play Baggettball again and return to a superior force in the BRD. What is Lafayette really? Where is the history?...okay LT, that’s pretty cool…that is not basketball though! What about Baggett?! We got him! I know that cannot be my only reasoning…but it is! Last year we beat Lafayette twice…and have done so years before…it is like a tradition in Baggettball. This year Lafayette beat us one already…this is not going to become one of their traditions! Tabb came first…by a one year…so we have owning the rams for years! You must learn your history for it not to repeat itself (use that for your exams also!), Lafayette thought they did this year…but this is a pop quiz. It is a different section they forgot to study for. Okay…sometimes history repeats itself, I mean WWI, WWII, so in the tradition of Baggettball it is our annual Ram Roast. That is how we celebrate the end of the exams. It is like a lawn party inside by a basketball court. There are always rematches that have gone on in history with comebacks and this is ours! Back to what it use to be and should be. Ram Roast Friday at 7 at Tabb…be there or be lame!
I did not forgot you. I promise. There is more games going on this week than boys basketball…but the girls! Their game is on Saturday night…and people always have something pumpin’ on Saturday, but the game is at 7 and will be done at 8:30, so you will have plenty of time to party. Personally, my Saturday does not begin until like 11…but you guys are in like high school and all. So the girls are facing Bruton…who always put on a good show in girls basketball…or basketball in general. But it is Tabb girls basketball they are facing. I know, I know, everyone is aware of their accomplishments…but I will repeat: only 2 losses, one out of district and one in, and the one was not by Grafton! No one else can compete in the Bay Rivers…soon we are just going to call it the Tabb Rivers! On Saturday will be our Panther Party. Panther meat is a delicracy…and we have the correct documentation to serve it legally…it is called winning. We are older than Bruton as well. They opened around the bicentinal…well at Tabb we always loved America..and did not have to show it by opening up on the country’s 200th anniversary! (1776, important date for your exams…I think…or the year 76, the firs year of the Jinach era in the Han Dynasty) Tabb basketball is as American as apple pie and if you love America you will be at the game on Saturday. It is the usual time, as I stated before, 7 and at home…boys maybe the highlight of the week…but we have to see how they do…maybe this game will be the highlight, we shall see…so y’know be there or be lame
There is one small issue I would like to address before I end this. That is Joe Nelson. I know I cannot believe it either…that little ray of sunshine is him…see you knows how to smile. It looks like he use to do it a lot…and enjoyed doing it. I wondered what happened to this innocent young Joe Nelson. I wondered that until I found this picture…
It says very much if I blame football for the execution of Joe Nelson’s smile…but the photos do not lie. He is about the same age too. It was just sports in general they changed our Joseph. It made him tough too fast…it was too soon. There is more beyond the games…but Joe does not look at it that way. This problem has been a concern with Joe’s youth…and the sad truth of it is, it concerns the one very reason we love him…his sports playing. I am not saying he should stop playing, but maybe he can find that kid inside…the kid before you did sports. The once year smiling too infrequent. Our only hopes to see Joe’s lips curve now is if he retires…if he does really good on exams…or if Baggettball wins a state title…which are you going with.
Whoa, we are ending once again. It always happens...but hey it is getting you through exam week...isn't it?! Tomorrow is Wednesday...which means we are even closer to Friday. Study hard my friends. Do you want this to end already? I can just talk randomly again. You know how people from Ohio State say they attend The Ohio State University...well I attend Mister George Mason University! We have more class...okay back to purple phone...nevermind...1300 words on day no sports were going on...shouties saying good day to all...I gots to go...too-a-loo...Roll Tig!
Peace be with you.
Mr. Baggett played a game of basketball on water once.
