Topics I've Started

finally figured it out....

12 October 2014 - 07:37 PM

People know they can't play the game at the NFL (or NBA or major league) level.  I mean, most folks with a reasonable amount of sanity realize they aren't 6'5, 260 with 10% body fat with insane strength and quickness.

 

But...  everyone knows they can coach better than (fill in the blank).  Because, you know, they watch a lot of (insert sport here) on TV, or they played it in high school.

 

I guess as a high school coach I have a little bit of insight from the other side.  I certainly don't agree with every decision Ron Rivera makes, or Roy Williams or Coach K.  But jeepers, some of the gameday posts are completely asinine.

 

Guess I better get used to it, since high school basketball season starts in just a couple of weeks.


BofA Stadium tour

If you've never taken an official tour of the stadium, it's worth the few bucks.  I took a group of my students today (this was one of our stops on our tour of some local businesses). Our guide was knowledgeable and gave a lot of little tidbits about the team, the stadium itself and Mr. Richardson.  Plus it's just a very cool facility.

 

Nice change of pace from the classroom today (for me and the kiddies).

 

 


Did Luke have 75 tackles today?

Good lord dude was all over the place today.

 

Having TD back certainly helped, and I think our d-line play was much better.  Hopefully we see more of the impressive second half defense like last year.

 

I really hope we all take time to sit back and enjoy what we're seeing in watching #59 play. Guys like that don't come alone every day.


local school shooting

30 September 2014 - 07:17 PM

This is less than a mile from my house, in the same school system that I teach in.  Keep our community in your thoughts and prayers.

 

Some interesting details will come out of this over the next few days. Overall, the situation just sucks out loud.

man what a day

17 September 2014 - 05:06 PM

Without going into detail for privacy details (of my students, not mine), let me just say this has been a hell of a day.

 

Ups and downs... full of triumphs and tribulations, good news and bad news.  Wanted to hug a couple kids, wanted to flat out kick a couple in the face, and just scratching my head at a few others.

 

This is one of those days where I sit back and wonder "how long can I keep doing this" and in the next breath "how could I ever do anything else".

 

Being a high school teacher in a public school in NC....never a dull moment.

 

Sometimes it's a job you hate to love.

 

Not sure what my point was in posting here since I can't mention any specifics. I can't even have a couple beers to unwind because I may have to go out to a school-related event later.
