Tuesday and wednesday went by and thursday and friday were just scrimmage days. After school thursday we stretched and got warmed up then got straight to business we picked teams and started playing I didn 't think the teams were that fair but I didn 't really care I just had to play my game I started down with the freshman and sophomore like every other freshman but i wasn 't regular like them after a few games past the coaches seen that a had some talent and that I should be moved up with the jv and the varsity players so the coach plaste me in the other gym with the more advanced players and put me on a team as soon as i started playing with the older guys I noticed an immediate change in paste I started breathing harder my heart rate shot up and they were just way bigger than me but I had to make it work somehow I knew I wasn 't the best one out there but I hustled a lot and gave it my all and hoped that 's what coach was looking for. At the end of practice I was exhausted from all of the running up and down
We finished the season with one loss and we went into the tournament with our first game against Republic and we won pretty easy. We played against Bothwell in the final in Marquette. I was really nervous as I can remember and it was really hot in the gym. The game started and we were up by 4 at halftime. The second half started and it was close all the way to the end.
Literally every day of grade 4 to 5 we played hockey outside, rain or snow we were out there. I was determined to start the school year with something different about me, that I played sports. Fast forward a couple of years, I was heading into my final year of elementary and a hobby of mine became going to Jordan’s hockey game’s whenever I was invited. I was so fascinated by watching hockey that it made me ask my dad to enroll myself for community hockey. See that’s when I realized that playing a sport could open so many new doors, and going into Peewee which is a division in hockey where at that time there was body checking allowed.
We’d had a few opportunities to chat and he was quite intriguing to me. His arrogance suddenly seemed more like a quiet confidence, and I found myself wanting to know more about his story. I also learned on day 6 that Matt could play the guitar… :) Another 5 days down the road, we arrived in Washington D.C. This was a special day for many reasons, but also because my mom and Melanie joined us! That evening after a fun dinner, a group of us headed out to find
I came to school Wednesday Morning at 7:30 with my bags to go to State Convention. We left the school that morning and was trying to fit everyone 's duffel bags in the seats on the bus. After we all got seat aided we left and headed to Columbia Missouri but we made a couple stops before arriving at the hotel for State Convention. Everyone we out for breakfast at Cracker Barrel then after we got done eating breakfast we went out to the Science Center. After we all had a
When I first entered the building, I received a Pottstown Penguins jersey, the team I would be playing for. In the locker room, my father did most of the work of getting me dressed. When I was finished getting dressed, I exited the locker room and lingered by the boards as the Zamboni took its closing laps around the rink. Finally, it was time to go onto the ice!
The next day Mark said “Go shower and put any of the stuff we weren’t going to use so we didn’t have to pack as much.” Once we were all done showering it was time for the first session of the day. At this session the band told a story about their childhoods. They had a special green screen setup to do a little skit for a song they made. It was the coolest thing I had ever seen done live on a stage. After the session we had breakfast and then a lot of free time.
I still remember when I went to Long Beach to play at a tournament called mexgames. My teammates, coaches and I got to stay at a hotel for free because the organizer of the tournament payed for everything. Although we ate the same breakfast everyday the same lunch everyday and the same dinner every day the food wasn’t that bad and plus it was free so why not. I had a blast those three days because I got to spend a lot of time with my teammates and there we shared lots of funny and memorable moments that no one else knows about. During the tournament I got to meet the Mexico Women’s National soccer team head coach and some of his assistants.
The sporting event that I attended this semester was the University of Arizona men’s rugby game last weekend against UCSD. I have a neighbor who plays on the team and because this was their last home game I decided to go and watch. I have never been to a rugby game before but since meeting my neighbor I have made a few friends on the team and thought it would be fun to go and support them. Since I had watched the rugby team in person I chose to watch a basketball game on TV so I could compare the two. The game I chose to watch was Kobe’s last game of his career.
We won some games, and we lost games, but we did it together. In the beginning of the season, rumors of doubt spread about our team being too short, or not good enough. A Lewistown High School team had not won a Regional Championship since the year 2002, but against all doubts, I knew my team could win. Not only had I seen their mistakes, along with my own, throughout this season, but I also watched them grow as athletes and individuals. The first round of regionals approached and we were given the name of the team we would play for the first game.
My favorite fast food chicken sandwich around. This fast food restaurant is always busy and the vibe is nothing but positive, with kids playing, families eating and plenty of the retired community enjoying a bite amid the pseudo-chaos (the children, not the employees).My respect to the manager for putting together such a fun, clean and safe environment with good food, reasonable value and good nutrition options. Therefore, next time you drive past a Chick-fil-a don’t hesitate to go in and enjoy a great
Devonte Ferrier Professor Wong Sports in American Society NCAA Tournament / SuperBowl Effect on American Society Sports and games are a piece of human culture. They can be seen as an intense fight for the win. At times during each teams season, week after week teams compete for the the win and for entertainment for the fans to see. There is no doubt these competitors and big games have turned out to be essential to the our society and fans that appreciate watching them. While it may sound like sports are something that is easily written off or something that doesn’t matter to everyone.
When we got up to our room on the second floor we were starving. For dinner that night we decided we would have the hotel’s buffet. They had many options from rice, catfish, sushi, and oh so many desserts. I 'm pretty sure Macy and I had about a sample of everything. After dinner her grandpa wanted to go to the casino while Macy , Grandma Kay and I went up to the room.
