NOT THE BEST
There is much news today that is not the best...first...it is February 2nd, so you know what that means...it is Popcorn Day! If Popcorn goes out and sees his shadow then winter sports go on longer than usual, if not then spring sports are going to be here sooner...it might be a lose-win situation...but those are the rules from the mythical basis. Popcorn is not harmed in anyway, so do not worry about anything animal rights activists...but go search into that Groundhog thing...I don't know. Popcorn just wants the day for himself...though he already stole it...that is cats for ya! So did he see his shadow...with me being out of town I have to wait for the news to be sent to me...check by this afternoon to learn the fate of winter/spring sports.
That is what the game was last night. I do not remember the last time a Tabb-Grafton ended up so close. Tabb did make the waters rough, but the clipper had a back-up engine and made it past us. It was a newer model. However, the Orange Army did claim a free victims, but in the end the ship as a whole survived. People have learned from the Titanic, so things like that w0n't happen again...except on cruise ships. But on to the actual game on the court...it was an insane event. There numerous lead changes and ties...5 of which happened in the fourth quarter. We also stopped that tall skinny...but forgot about some other guy who is pretty good on the team as well. I believe the game came down to the last shot, which was a 3 pointer...by Grafton...which mean the district title is theirs...I accidentally wrote ours first, seeing how rare this is! It is not as disappointing as you think, Grafton only won 59 to 62. Remember the first game?...It was no way like this! Grafton said they respected the Tabb program very much...remember respect outweighs awards and titles any day! Our scorers last night were Today's Ryan Sawyer with 13, Lil' Baggett had 6, Machete Mitchell put up 4, Shaq Rodney had a season high (?) of 23, Yancey put up 2, Stilts Schiele got 7, and Joe the Show Nelson contributed with 4. They almost won with all that...but, hey man, one shot! One shot kid! No one should be ashamed, the season is not over, Tabb has improved greatly, who knows we may see Grafton again in a post tournament and then the boat will sink all the way...it already has enough damages! Good job to all...at least yesterday was not Groundhog Day or you'd be living that game over and over again!
Is Groundhog Day and we...or just I...hope Grafton lives this game over and over again...I am in high confidence of their loss. It is ridiculous...Tabb girls basketball beat them once already, but still did not get ranked higher. No one in the Bay Rivers truly believes in our girls. They still get no respect?! Hey, who has lost only district game...not Grafton...if you are still guessing, it is T-A-Double B! Tonight we need put the nail in the coffin. This ship is going down to Davey Jones' locker tonight! And...don't worry I hired a really good undertaker. I mean sprinkling ashes across the ocean is beautiful, you are lucky to go that way Grafton. Who is the undertaker...Tabb girls basketball...like who did not see that coming?! These girls do good work...did you see the ceremonies for York? Bruton? Warhill? Lafayette? And countless others? They know what they are doing...this is not their first funeral. I knwo it is sad grafton, but with players like Pulverizing Piazza, Mahan the Machine, Trick Mackey, Joker Joseph, Striker Stratton, the Hoodlum, Merciful Macfarlane, and pretty much the whole team, it is hard for them not to destroy everything in their path. They do not know their full ability sometimes. Tabb girls basketball winning is a part of life, you have to accept. Good things will happen after. Your win is in a better place now...so I guess black-out! tonight...this is a funeral. All the naysayers will quite sounding like horses and finally say yay! Tonight at Tabb, they did it once (like the Giants!) and can do it again! 7 at Tabb....be there or be lame.
So I find pictures like this and realize...I missed senior night!! Senior night is always the last home game of the season, which is tonight, but apparently it was the Bruton game. I guess it was because of this Grafton funeral?...Whatever the reason...I be late...I am sorry...some top of the ball sports blog I am...though I am never quite that much to begin with. They saw better late than never and this did not quite take place a week ago...or maybe it did...but I will still honor the seniors this year, who are
- Emily 'Pulverizing' Piazza
- Hannah 'Swingin' Swenson
- Natalie Joseph 'the Joker'
- Diana 'Kinetic' Kinney (who is back on the court by the way!)
- Cassie Sparks 'Fire'
Good job on o all your accomplishments these past years on and off the court and good luck to your future endeavors. I am sorry once again...but you still won on your senior night, which might be better than being on the Tabb sports blog! I miss senior night, I miss Diana's return, I am not doing so well with girls basketball...this is the first thing I ever missed on your sport...and the last! :) Thanks for the photos Casey, whoever you are...I did steal these.
NOT LATE REALLY
When actual good news happens to Joe you'd think he'd be smiling...but no! By the time we got to him...he was sleeping!! That smile is coming!! In Joe's defense he has been hounded by reportsers all yesterday...though I am the Tabb sports blog...home town writer! I am not late on this, it just broke out yesterday, that Joe Nelson commits to VMI! The Virginia Military Institute: where the boys become he-men! He is going to stand out in Lexington! Mr. Defense, Joe the Show, has a new home after June...and this one is alot more stricter! I cannot wait to see his impact. Although being in a military school probably means, no smiling...so it is just up Joe's alley! A big congrats to him and best of luck. I know yesterday was national signing day or something...but this is all I got for Tabb. If there is anyone else...let me know...but Joe is our man today...and soon he really will be a man...or Keydet...or a kangaroo? The zips? ...I don't know...it sounds dumb....have fun with Joe...no Mason? You could be a star...on our club team!!
Nothing left for today...except stop by later to see if Popcorn saw his shadow or not...winter sports prolonged or spring sports sooner? It is important news! Anyhow, still fantastic job Baggettball, good luck girls, sorry about senior night, congrats Joe, forget you Phil...Popcorn is where it is at,...i had alotta stuff today, so tomorrow we will announce January's player of the month...until then keep it real my homies! I hope it is a good day...i have an interview in less than a hour...wish me luck...no!! I forgot to wear the earmuffs!! Wish me extra luck!! See you tomorrow...or this afternoon...Roll Tig!
Peace be with you.
Mr. Baggett scares everyone's shadow.
