  This shot of Joey is now my wallpaper - there is something about it

joe -1The shots from the match with Ocean Township are up and can be accessed at right.  Honestly, there were moments that, despite my confidence in you, I was worried. Really though, that does make it an exciting night I had gone to the swim meet at 3:30 - done by 4:30 got a tuna wrap for a quick dinner in the sub shot by Walgreens - read a bit and waited - a long evening - I was glad it was punctuated by excitement - as long as there was a win at the end.

The photos from the semi final match against Hopewell Valley are up and you can double click to the right.

SPHS vs Hopewell -89

 I wonder sometimes if the "fates" are set against me. I was up at 5 to see the results on N.J. Com and it's now 7:13AM and everyone is up EXCEPT SPHS and the JFK match last night.  I assume they will update the story so I have provided the link here.

Oddly, I went in by searching on JFK and found that they lost to Ocean Township by nine points - so we have a contest on Friday.

SPHS vs Hopewell -131

I attended a few minutes of the ( the Photos I took have a link to the right ) Woodbridge Township Tri Meet this year - I discuss the topic here.

My one and only opinion from the finals, my personal takeaway here.

A great smile for my camera. Sadly, the other young man is in no position to appreciate it

GMC day 2-454Ah! A look to set a mother's teeth on edge. While Dad secretly smiles - I know the feeling. Well done Nick.
