Victor raised his hand, wanting to impress Teresa.” This further demonstrates that he has a conviction and is determined to get Teresa to notice him.

Also, Victor tries to scowl after learning that Michael, Victor’s friend, read a magazine showing that models would stand, one arm around a beautiful woman, and scowl. Once he tries this out, he acquires an odd look from a girl passing by, “He scowled and let his upper lip quiver.” His teeth show along with the ferocity of his soul.

One reason for this is, “If I could read and write, I would help you become smarter Laddy.” Another reason why Tam Lin is a good guy is when He takes him out to the field and wants to have fun and talk to Matt about some things. The last reason why I think Tam Lin was a good guy is that he cared for Matt when other people like El Patron didn’t want anything to do with him.
