Before we dig into the meat of this blog, I should point out that I’m (hopefully) in San Antonio right now. Getting ready to root for the Cyclones against the Washington State Cougars in the Alamo Bowl.
You should definitely sit down and root the Cyclones to victory.
The game starts at 8 PM Central Standard Time. The channel is ESPN. Root hard, because better believe that I will be!
Last Thursday night Andy texted me and invited me to come to an event I’ve never been to in my life. Something I’ve never really wanted to attend. However, it involved his progeny Kyle and Kyle is a good egg, so I figured, “Why not?”
It was also a good chance to put Page 13 into the completed column of THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT:
Page 13 – Take a picture that helps you come to terms with a personal hang-up.
How is a high school wrestling meet a personal hang-up? It isn’t really. It is more like Youth Sports is kind of a personal hang-up of mine. I helped coach Little League for 10 years and I saw very little good come from the experience.
I can say that wrestling also isn’t my thing. I don’t hold any ill-will towards the sport, but it just isn’t my thing.
I appreciate the discipline, hard work, and commitment it takes to be a wrestler, I just don’t understand why you wouldn’t take those same things and direct them towards something fun… like basketball. You know, the best sport.
But I have agreed to go to 1 Kyle wrestling meet every year for the next 3. 2 if he makes it to State.
While I can only physically adhere one picture in the physical THE PHOTO JOURNAL, I did take several more wrestling pictures.
Not sure what page we will cross off next time we check-in with THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT. Perhaps that page will be crossed off in San Antonio!
This is your reminder that this week’s WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE theme is FRIENDS:
A FRIENDS image is a picture of FRIENDS or anything that comes along with having FRIENDS.
Happy photo harvesting!
