ALL ABOUT THE GREEN!
Kiss him, he's Irish!....or at least has orange hair...yeah, I really do not know the ancestory of Striepe...but on March 17th, Red is the best thing we got for a mascot! As you can see this is the one day in the year where chicks actually dig him...but come the 18th, it will be as if this day never existed! The one day we accept red heads! This blog is giving out virtual pinches, well the one my mom got was not virtual...but yeah, I am that guy! If we were catering we would have some corn beef and cabbage too. I can only imagine what type of ground will show up to the musical tonight! In reality, maybe this day is not as cool as it is made out to be. Do not feel left out St. Patrick was from like Spain, so today is like pre-Cinco de Mayo, almost! I guess it is time to name this year's favorite Irishmen. Last year it was Marty O'Brien, a big time newspaper journalist. This year why not go with someone close to Tabb?...Super star wrestler, Jacob Rose, he does have orange hair. Congrats to this year's favorite Irishman and have a happy St. Patty's Day, try to remember it this year...and yes my criteria for if a person is Irish is just orange hair.
I WAS OUT
I was out to the ball game that is. Yesterday Tabb baseball took on York for the home opener...and despite our new team being mostly underclassmen, they stacked up pretty well. ...It was still a loss...but it was close throughout. The game ended up being just a 2-1 loss. The secret weapon, still, was Ben Phifer, the Piped Phifer, the little giant, he stood tall going 2-2 witth a run and a stolen base. Those are Tabb hall of fame credentials. Though Tabb never ended up tying or getting 2 more runs, I think the guys played pretty good. They just fell short a couple of times. This is alot better than an 8-0 loss or something like that...so we can say improvement! Buffkin pitched pretty well also and close Preston Norris ain't too shabby either. Since I have been doing this blog I have realized many teams get a slow start...look at basketball, started not the best, but ended up regionals. Baggett spirit in this sport...so give it time and it will show. It is going to be buddy ball again, buddy ball like 'Hey buddy!', we can't call it Baggettball! Things will get better....but...for now good job baseball and keep up the good work....and new goal: start Bruton's winning streak back up again.
I SHOULD HAVE
I should have gone to the softball game instead, no offense baseball, but softball was big hitting, high scoring, close game. The bad news of this story is, it is a York triumph. Not because they won, but because how they did it. Tabb had been booming from the very beginning. In the 1st and 2nd we scored 4 runs, but then in the following innings we did not score anymore, which would have been fine if York did not score any...but they did. There was a point where they were 8-1, but by the end they were up 9-8....and won. It was a tough day for tabb sports, yesterday! The girls did score more did they did in the first game. They improved too, all we need now is to learn how to hold on a lead. It was not the best game, maybe it was good I was not there....though I did have my earmuffs, bt many players hit the ball well, Kayla St. John 3-4 with a double, 2 runs, and a RBI and Murray went 2-4 with 3 RBIs ...I do not know if that all stats, the paper usually just publishes the "stand-outs ..so I am sorry if I did not get your name. Losses like this builds character and helps people learn...and I know the coach will not let this happen again! It does suck, but we are improving, better will come...good job...my luck should've been there!
There he is our official Tabb Blog singer, Josh Williams. It was has been like a month, almost, and finally we have a winner. Once again I did not have to make a decision! Everything worked out for the best! I hope you like Josh's voice...because it is all we are going to be hearing his voice. How did Josh win? Well, he won...kinda...it is still a win! No one voted yesterday, it was just a tough decision to make, no one wanted to. Then something unexpected occurred....Rick took himself out of the competition. He is just too busy to be our official singer. Him and the Time Machine are starting their tour in May, he is recording his new solo album, composing commercial music, MCing bar mitzvahs, and still trying to get a degree in something. Rick helped make the decision for us. There is no harsh feelings between either, in fact, look for special appearances from Josh on Rick's tour, an album appearance or even an album together...it is a good partnership going on...and Rick will appear every now and then...but for singing it is all Josh. He is taking request always...he will be singing non-stop now...or until June. I think his own composition did it for him, he was always a fav. Well the people have spoken, kinda, and Josh is our new or first Tabb Icon! Congrats!
Today at 12:30 girls lacrosse are taking on First Flight. They are going to have a crash landing. Those wings are not going to be fixed, girls lacrosse are taking control. Today at 12:30 at Yorktown Middle School...the Greatest Show with Netted Sticks...it kinda works. Also, it is the last night for the musical at 7:30. It will be a shame if you miss Mame...I may be there...may...I will try! The last night is always the best! Trust me! For now good luck girls lacrosse, good job baseball, softball, and Josh, have a good tour Rick, and everyone have a good day. I will back here and tomorrow and Fairfax :( ...gotta go back! But I still may see you today...maybe...we'll see...that is it...wow, not 1000 words today...wait nevermind. Well okay bye! Roll Tig!
Peace be with you.
