I think Tyson would say yesterday was "BLACK THURSDAY" for him. Poor guy! This week is a big football week as we play the "other" catholic high school (Juan Diego) here in Salt Lake. HUGE RIVALS! The games are never pretty. The JV team lost 18-7. The game was a lot closer than the score indicated, but the boys were heartbroken. Our defense did awesome and held Juan Diego so many times on 3rd and 4th down. Tyson had a monster game with close to 100 yrds. rushing and he did score the only touchdown. He still wasn’t happy though. He was called for unsportsman-like conduct with about 2 minutes to go in the game. He let a swear word out. I’m thinking it wasn’t just any swear word either. It was probably the mother of all swear words. Oi vey! He felt horrible about it. But that kid needs to learn. (I’m sorry if anyone was offended by that…. unfortunately, with high school sports the language could curl your toes) And to top it off…. the girl he asked to Homecoming said NO! She is a friend of Tyson’s ex-girlfriend, and the ex-girlfriend threatened to terminate their friendship if she went with Tyson. The same thing happened with the first girl Tyson was going to ask. They talked about it, and decided that the ex-girlfriend would hold it against her friend. So…. back to square one. He felt pretty bad about it. The girl he asked was sad about it too. This ex-girlfriend just continues to make things difficult for Tyson! Thankfully, Tyson is now realizing how controlling and over-bearing she was. He has now vowed that he WILL NOT have a girlfriend in high school! Ü We’ll see how long that lasts!
Big varsity game tonight! We are playing at home so hopefully, we’ll have a little bit of an advantage! GO BULLDOGS!
