maybe cinderella wears 15EE wrestling shoes

i got a couple requests for a wrestling update, so here's the quick version.

good news: the happy overachievers from mounds view advanced to the state's final four at excel center wednesday.

bad news: they face defending champs apple valley tonight at 6:30.

valley hasn't missed a state tourney in 25 years, so they live up to their decades of dominance motto. regardless of the final score, however, i know the boys will rise to the competition. i'll be hoopin' and hollerin' for tor to close out the night with a solid showing against mike dralle, valley's fine senior heavy. the winner gets hastings or anoka in tomorrow night's championship; the loser gets a third-place match at 10 am.

unless coach dan has 14 pairs of glass wrestling slippers in his truck, he'll need a heck of a pep talk to beat valley. i'm no coach, but i'd tell the lads to just turn it loose, tear it up, and remember psalm 23: yea, though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death, i will fear no evil.

Thanks for the update! I've been reading about it in the paper. Valley must be intense if you would feel the need to go all spiritual on the lads!

(flinch) Oooo. Yeah. Bummer. Hope the guys can still be motivated for third place this morning!

things went a little better this morning against anoka. mounds view lost, but returns from state with a ginormous fourth place trophy. tor was knocked out for a moment and seemed to have hurt his neck badly -- basically my nightmare scenario -- but he's doing fine now. one more banquet, and then on to rugby...

OMG re: Tor!!! Glad he's ok. Micah was knocked unconscious at daycare a week ago and that was about the end of me. Yay 'stangs!

This is a skill I probably would never have thought of for one of my characters, but there are some good reasons to keep this in mind. Thanks!
