NHL Playoffs Beginning

The NHL playoffs have began a few days ago. Even though my team, the Edmonton Oilers, aren't in the playoffs it will still be exciting and I have confidence that they will be in the playoffs next year after narrowly missing the playoffs this year. Their young players have developed and when they get all their injured players back they will be better than ever. The fantasy baseball season has also started as well. I think I have a good team with players like Ryan Howard, David Ortiz and Josh Beckett and the most underated player in the game, Carlos Pena. I have a few months left in school as well, but some big tests are coming up.

Hockey Season is in Full Swing!!!

The hockey season has started a few weeks ago. My team, the Oilers, got off to a quick 2-0 start, but dropped the next 4. Tonight they play in Phoenix, and to make matters worse, Sheldon Souray could be gone for a month!!! I still have faith in them, though. And whenever they do bad, I always have this to look at.

I'm Back in School...

Well, I can't believe it but I am back at school. I started two days ago. It was one of the worst days of my life. I don't know about you guys, but I absolutley despise school. Wouldn't you agree? It's so boring, and it was so much fun to stay home. One time a school went on strike, and they wanted to back out, and I couldn't help but think...nerds!!! I mean, come on, who would want to go backto school? It's crazy I tell you, crazy!!! I hate school!!! I can't wait to get out!! I didn't even get the teacher I wanted or the class I wanted. It's going to be an absolute horrible year. It's going to stink!! I can't wait till next summer!!

Done Harry Potter

Yesterday, after 4 long days I reading I have finished the Harry Potter series. I can't believe how good this book was. It would always keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting to read more. And at the end, I almost passed out it was so exciting. And the way it wraps it up, it makes you feel happy and like it is a good end to the series. I won't go into the details 'cause I don't want to spoil it for you guys, but if you're even a casual Potter fan read this. Now that I'm done the series it's going to be hard to find a good book now, but I guess we have to wait till J.K. Rowling's next book.

My Great Weekend

It all started out with a trip to an Eskimos football game on Friday the 20th. The Esks played terrible in the first half and as a result they were down 20-1 at halftime. But they didn't give up and got a 17 point quarter, making it 20-18 going into the 4th and final quarter. With about 2 minutes to go, still 20-18, Eskimos kicker Shawn Flemming attempted a 47 yard field goal attempt from 47 yards. It was a kick that could have been made from 57 yards, giving it's power. But did it make it. Yes, it did!!! The Esks were up 21-20 and thanks to some solid D, they won the game. From 20-1, they came back and won. Amazing. But my amazing weekend did not end yet.The next day I came downstairs to find that my sister had got me Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as an early birthday present (it's July 31st in case you didn't know). I read it right away. I'm on page 220 and it's very good, don't want to give it away to you. That day we went to Capital Ex. For those who don't know, it's an amusement park that's only open for about a week or 2 in the summer. I went on a few rides, got some food and had a lot of fun. We're not doing anything today, though, at least I don't think. But there's baseball, golf and soccer to watch so it's not all that bad, I guess.

We Want Sly, We Want Jak!!

I am starting to get really impatient waiting for a Sly 4 and Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier. It hasn't been annonced at E3, so that means that we're going to have to wait AT LEAST another year JUST to know if they're going to make one, and if that happens we might have to wait ANOTHER year to wait till it comes out. Oh well, there's still other games out there.

Summer is Here!!

After a long 10 months of school, summer is finally here. Today I saw Ratatouille and it was a very good movie. I personally recommend it to everyone. I give it 4 out of 5 stars. My grandparents are visiting right now for a week or so and my birthday is on July 31st. So far summer is sweet!!

Summer Almost Here!!!

I'm so excited for summer. My school year ends on the 28th and the next day I'm seeing Ratatouille (prononced Rat-a-too-e) with my dad. While we don't have any vacations planned, this summer's going to be sweet!!!
