my team and I got 3rd in the state tournament today. yesterday we beat grand rapids 6-1. it was really easy. I won 6-1, 6-1. In the semifinal match this morning we lost 5-2 to rochester mayo. danny wilson and I were the only two people who won. I won 3-6, 6-4, 6-1. then we played against wayzata for third place. earlier in the season we beat them 4-3, and they are wack and stupid so they probably thought they had a chance. we beat them 6-1 and it was pretty cool. it was my last team match ever. I had a pretty good career I think. While I was on the team we got 5th place twice and 3rd this year. my personal record at the state tournament is 8-1. my only loss in singles this year was to edina's number 1 singles player mike eastman so I am claiming the title of best 2nd singles player in state. I had a fun career and I will miss it. I think I graduated last night too or something like that. and finally, my good friend and teammate james gleckner and I shaved off our playoff beards. we now have moustachios.
Thanks for the quick reporting, Peter. I didn't think Liv and Stevie were graduating on the same night, but I guess they did. Our ceremony was quite nice and although we had crying babies and airhorns, our speakers were good and the Roy Wilkins Auditorium was air-conditioned.
Stevie's graduation went off without a hitch last night -except of course for the long winded commencement speakers, overheating gymnasium and crying babies.. Congrats Stevie and good luck at the state tournament! Congrats to Liv as well..

I'll be heading off to the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness Area tomorrow afternoon for a five day canoe trip with some guys from our church. We'll be going up to Ely, MN and going into the BWCWA through Lake one. On the map you can see the route that we're going to be taking. I can't wait! And now - off to Stevie's graduation.
