Incidentally, I should mention that I’ve been doing a lot of coaching this week in preparation for State finals this weekend. Satchel took second place in the Regional finals Saturday, winning his first two matches by points, outscoring his opponents 24-0, before losing in the finals to a kid who he’s yet to beat, a member of the League’s premier club (at least for now). Satch was also the only wrestler in the bracket who didn’t have a bye, despite his having taken first place in Districts.
All of which means that, in addition to how proud we are of him for taking second in the Region, he will compete on Superbowl Sunday for a championship at States, wrestling at UNC in Greeley from the second seed.
Unfortunately, because of the Superbowl, wrestling begins at 7 am. Which means we have to be at the arena at a bit past 6 am, and it’s an hour drive were we to go from home. More, weigh-ins are the night before in the same venue. So we’ve decided to stay over at a near by hotel. Which only had single kings left. Leaving me to sleep on a cot, in bed by 9, on my birthday. Happy birthday to me!
But it’s all worth it. Just making it to States is an honor, and Satchel did it while spending the majority of his season wrestling up in weight in duals and tournaments.
If you don’t hear much from me, it’s because I’m working on a game plan for Satchel should he be fortunate enough to make the finals and face the same kid who beat him in Regionals.
And honestly, what’s there to say? Obama’s going to give a bullshit speech tonight, other sites are now doing the language thing as if it’s something new and fresh, the left is in full-on totalitarian mode, and the GOP’s concern is how best to manage a permanent Obamacare, defeat their base in elections and discredit the very foundations of classical liberalism, and secure amnesty for their corporatist sugar daddies.
They don’t need me for any of that.
