nice trophy, dudes


emotions ran high yesterday, as the lad's wrestling team advanced to the state tournament. the enormous noncomformist closed out three tight matches with authority, before a foot-stompin' crowd in roseville.

the boys here employ their index fingers to signal that they would each like one (1) large post-match kiwi-strawberry slurpee (the big guy in back apparently desires at least two of same). the individual qualifiers are next weekend, but this day was all about team. they'll meet the seven other survivors -- albert lea, wayzata, hastings, osseo, anoka, apple valley, and grand rapids -- in st. paul's excel center on the 28th, where the crowds can reach five figures. yeesh.

Wow, dude...big ups to the big kid for coming through like that. But man, if you were afraid the pressure was on him before...well, at least he got everybody out of school for a day or two.

But the age-old question has finally been answered: How do you tell the non-conformist on the wrestling team?

A: The giant one in the back who's not only the only one not in uniform, but is wearing a tye-die shirt to boot.

This is so exciting! I'm a little emotional myself right now. I think I'm gonna have to attend the state tourney this year...

It looks like you're not going to have to pay for college! (As long as he goes to a school with a wrestling team).

thanks, buds. the first match is against osseo, on weds the 28th at 7:30 in the excel center -- http://www.theguillotine.com/highsch/0607/state/st3atm.html

i'll learn this weekend whether the lad also makes the tourney as an individual. this would result in a crazy (but happy) schedule next thursday and friday.

i'm told i'll need to commission a sign -- maybe something green with gold glitter?
