I know, I know...how am I still writing...or maybe we should asked, why am I still writing? It is beyond me...but I do not see myself making it to Friday. We have a few more things to do and then it is all done. How many people are even still reading? Is school still going on? I don't know myself...my school is for another week or so. What else is up? How are exams...is that a good thing to talk about? I am just putting in filler here...but no more procrastinating, I guess, and let's just start this mess like we always do. For some reason we still have a tabb blog...I don't get it either....
PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Okay, let's just get down to business. We have had player of the week and the month since August...and now let's name the big one: the player of the year. It was not easy to pick...and as I think about I probably have to pick a girl and boy. It is usually that way. Superlatives even give two separate awards...so I guess it is only fair. To be eligible for this award you have to have played for more than one season...I mean it is the year...it makes sense...so one boy and girl who defined tabb sports in 2011-2012 This who we were thinking...I hope guys agree...and if you have any pointers....share
GIRLS PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Bri Jasenak - She did not play all 3 seasons, but still is probably the most well-known tabb female player. In both field and soccer she made like All-State selections. She was field hockey's player of the year...and she is not even playing that sport in college! Jasenak's stats hit the ceiling, they are hard to believe she has done so much. Jasenak's has only a 4-year career at this high school, but in these 4 fours, she has made things look like a pro. If I was to give an honorable mention, I guess I would go with Leigh Ann Soitsmann. She ran all-year and found much success getting state recoginition in indoor track and outdoor track. Soitsmann was just always kinda under the radar. Running is just no appreciated.
Andrew Junio - there were others in the running that I thought about...but I felt Junio made a deeper impact. It was a fast start in the fall with more 1000 yard then what was he like 4th in the state? And perhaps his track season was not as memborable as the other 2 seasons, he was still there doing his thing. Junio is Junio...everyone knows how he does. I do guess have an honorable mention: Joe Nelson, he was around for all 3 seasons, helped out his team, and made it to states twice!...I mean like the state tournament for basketball and was in states for shot put...or is it pot? Anyhow, Joe had a good year too.
Yeah these are the people I got....and yes being a senior does help. I mean all these people are not going to be back next year. I know it is hard to believe, but they definitely made this year what it what was...which was awesome! Congrats to al players of the years and even honorable mentions. Best of luck next year.
In times like these, around graduation, it is nice to see the future of past friends...and here is Michael Quintana. My dear friend...boxes! How sweet is that? I did not know he had it in him either. Since he has graduated, been a West Point, he has become a man! Those barely look like boxing gloves. It is more manlier to do boxing with bare knuckles. Quintana was always pretty awesome..but, man, boxing...that's what's up. The next time Michael has an event we will make sure to pay-per-view blog-style that event. See graduates even in a year after high school you can change...and in some cases become...well a bad ass...or at least look like one in a picture. What?! I had to say it...joking. This picture makes up for you not writing me back...and I wont make you upset anymore. However, we need a new nickname, Q-Train does not work, you do not run anymore. Quicksand? Q-fist? the Quest?...I am just thinking of q names now...but, well, do super well first and then we'll think of a new nickname. Keep doin' good dude...and I guess now, no one will make you made.
It is not a direct blog concert tour, but it involves many associates to the blog. Rick and the Time Machine are going out on tour this summer. In the Summer of the Past Tour (time machine, get it?). It is just not Rick, the opening act is Tabb Icon winner, newly produced album singer, Josh Williams...who I hear may have some duet numbers with the Time Machine. And to chill things out and because Rick has such a good sense of humor, Diana Kinney will be doing some of her jokes as an opener. This sounds like the best concert ever. Tour dates as following:
6/19 - Yorktown Beach
And other dates are to be announced...but there will more than one...hopefully...I am sure. What are you doing this summer? Is it not as good as previous ones? Step into the summer's past then, with Rick, the Time Machine, and countless number of special guests...who knows maybe even a blogger you know. Anyhow, this summer there is at least one concert going on...be there or be lame...oh, I have used that in over a week! ...and tickets are tba...and you beat the Hipster and her crew will be there!
And the Krista Meyers hologram may show up for the concert too...the person is just too hard to book. You know when you see our Krista Meyers hologram that it is time to end things...oh not just for today...tomorrow will be our last entry of the year. I mean, seriously, I have to...I am surprised I am even going this long. At least stop by tomorrow, it will be in the morning. Shouties saying congrats to the players of the year, the Q-trap? (that good?), Rick's tour, our hologram, stay safe mom, and everyone have a good day. Be back tomorrow and then....ah...Roll Tig!
Peace be with you.
