Blow the whistle already

Wow, wow, wow!!!

We have the BEST (Diana Taurasi) player in the country on our team and she
goes to the free-throw line like twice a game. I mean come on. The poor
kid gets killed every game. She is just so good, I cannot understand why
she does not get more calls. I am not saying to rig a call so that she
gets something she does not deserve; I'm saying just let the kid get the
calls other players get. She never really complains. Once in a while she will argue, but she should. She cannot get a call.

Well, enough of this. My senior year is almost over, and I cannot believe it. It just seems like the days just keep going by faster and faster. Our old equipment lady came back for a couple of days to see us. Her name is Mrs. Linda and she is the bomb. She used to take care of us. She would wash all our stuff and make sure everything was perfect. Now she is retired and moved to North Carolina, and we have some new guys that do a good job. But they are no Mrs. Linda.

I thought that the NBA All-Star game was pretty good, well until the end. And Birdy (Sue Bird), great job in the 3-on-3.

Well, until next time, peace.
