Game Against Stillwater

Friday, January, 28th, we played Stillwater in an away game at night. We once again beat our record for this season for most points. We moved it from 29 to 38. We won the game 38-14. We should have had more points for the 6 or 10 fouls the ref did not call. In this game, the other team only had one good player, and he only played half the game. This is our first of two away games. This is also our first Friday night game. Our next game will be next Friday at 7:00 at Frelinghyson school.

Most people think of snow as tiny balls of water that is cold precipitating down onto the ground. That is very wrong. Snow is tiny ice crystals that form, and when they are heavy enough they fall to earth. When the snow hits the ground, most of the time it melts for a while then starts collecting. The only time snow collects immediately after falling is if the ground is below the temperature of the snow crystals. Snow is also very helpful. One way snow is helpful is because it can bring water to the ground to help the water cycle.  Another good thing snow does, if there is enough of it, it will give you a snow day, or at least a delayed opening. Some of the bad things snow can do is freeze very hard and become the dangerous black ice. Another bad thing snow does is snow too much and cancel your basketball practice like it did tonight, January 26, 2011. Remember don't groan at snow, think of all the great things snow does for us.  Below is a picture of a bird that is standing on the snow. If you look closely, you can see the tiny snow crystals.

Game Against Hampton

Today we played Hampton in our last home game for 2 weeks. We got off to a good start with the lead and the lead never swiched to Hampton's side.We continued our perfect winning streak against this team. We have never lost to Hampton since I have played. In total, we are 3-0 and going into our only two away games this season. They are back to back weeks and both on Friday nights. During the game one of my friends was fouled 3 times by the same peerson. That one player fouled a total of 4 times and was lucky to stay in the game. We did not beat our all-time points record which was 48 set last year, but we did break our record for this year by one. We moved it from 28 to 29.  I am sorry but I do not have any pictures from todays game.

Homework. I absolutly hate homework because it takes time away from us kids lives. We as kids should not have homework because in the time it takes us to do it we could be outside getting more exersise or we could be inside discovering somethig new. I belive homework should be eliminated. The whole reason for school is to do our work in school, and not at home. Also in the time it takes me to do my homework I could be getting better at basketball, or helping someone else. Homework is a total waste of time.

Winter Birds

During the winter some birds are not here in Fredon, but some very beautiful birds still stick around. My dad loves photographing nature, so I haved learned alot about the birds that stick in Fredon for the winter. My favorite bird is the male cardinal. I like him because of his vibrant colors and that he is a very hard bird to photograph. I also love photography, but I like to photograph the sky, landscapes and sports. My best hit in the photography world was when, in the summer, I won second place in the New Jersey State Fair for a photo of a bush that looked to be on fire but really was not. Another bird species that is here in Fredon in the winter is the mourning dove. I have only seen it once, but I am sure that it has been here more than once. Below is a picture of the male cardinal.

Historic Buildings: Keep or Move

Today I went to an area that had some historic buildings and I was very mad at what was happening. The first problem I saw was that the lead paint was peeling and that if a big gust of wind came it could blow the lead paint into the nearby stream and pollute the water. A second problem was that jagged metal tools were sticking out of the snow. If someone did not see them they could get hurt. A final problem was the wood was all rotten and moldy, and it's not good for the enviorment and looks unsightly. I personally think that the government should get rid of these buildings or move them inside a large musem so that the buildings don't pollute the enviorment any longer. I am sorry that I do not have a picture to show you of the buildings. Keep following for more posts.

Our First Basketball Game This Season

The first game of the season was suppose to end up with us being crushed by the new team Byram. The outcome was the complete opposite. We won 28-8 in a complete blowout. Byram did not score until the second half. In that game my friend, Justin, scored our first 10 points, then I was the second person to score makeing a 16 ft jumpshot. After the game I wondered why that team did not play like they were rumoured to. Now after our Sparta game we are 2-0 and we will go on to play Hampton next Saturday,the 22nd. The picture at the bottom shows the scoreboard (in the backround) at the end of the game. Keep following for more posts.

Game against sparta

On Saturday the 15th I had a basketball game against Sparta
At the end of regulation time we were tied at 23 so we went to overtime. No one scored in overtime until there was 1.5 seconds left. My teamates Matt and Justin plowed through everyone and Justin made the last second game-winning shot with 1.1 second left. We are now 2-0 and will play Hampton next Saturday. the picture at the bottom shows the scoreboard at the end of the game. Horay for Fredon!!! Keep folowing for more posts.
