I don’t know what’s worse, being ignored or stared at.
School was my solace, and studying let me escape, allowing me to live a thousand vicarious lives.
Mr. Vey, you cannot be stuffed into a locker without your consent.” Dallstrom said, which may be the dumbest thing ever said in a school. “You should have resisted. That’s like blaming someone who was struck by lightning for getting in the way.
Everybody’s situation is different. If Tim Duncan stayed in school another four years it didn’t matter what Tim Duncan did his senior season. I think there are some guys that are NBA guys… I think Ronnie is definitely a guy who could play in the NBA. It doesn’t matter if he stays or whether he...
Everything I need to know… I learned in kindergarten.
There are three reasons. The school has been good to me, and we’re in a bind now. I miss working with the kids in a game I still love. And, as the athletic director, it’s a good move because we have nine coaching positions to fill with two teaching openings. With this, we won’t have...
Mark, trying his best to distance himself from the cruel and pathetic 21st century, hadn’t listened to the news reports, not even when the dark green jeeps and helicopters showed up in town, men dressed in identical uniforms, just like in school, always standing with stony faces, setting up shelters and warning signals and food...
