My Miami - Part 2
After being here for three days I am actually
finding a kinder, gentler, Miami than I remember
from my extended stays back in the 90's. While
English still isn't necessarily the first language
down here, at least the wait staff of the places I
frequent speak enough of the King's language
that I can order breakfast without having to point
to pictures - which wasn't always the case. If you
sit in a group and listen, English is rarely spoken.
The locals are still a somewhat rude and angry
crowd. People think nothing of jumping in front of
you in line, and God Forbid they have to wait in
line at a check-out, or to be seated at a
restaurant, or for the waiter or waitress to appear
at their table. It is nothing to hear "Is anyone
seating tables?" or the clink of a spoon against
an empty glass to get the attention of a waiter.
Unlike NoKy where we are go-with-the-flow
sheep, there are plenty of cashiers at Wal-Mart
and Publix. There have to be. If not the
customers would simply leave their full baskets
sitting there and walk out. Again being a bit rude
gets results, something else that we NoKyians,
who endlessly stand in lines might learn from.
It is official. We can now unveil the surprise raffle item from Marshall Granger Jewelers and
IT IS A BEAUTY!
This ring is made of diamonds and 14 KT white gold. There are 55 diamonds total. The total of diamonds is 1 carat.
The 7 center diamonds are free of any noticeable flaws and are very white in color & total 1/2 carat. The other 48 full cut
diamonds set throughout the ring total 1/2 carat to make this item a total of 1 CARAT. (Retails for $3,900)

In 37th District Seeding Contest On "Boomer" Night
Four Year Varsity Manager Zach "Boomer" Born Inserted Into Lineup,
Etches a Place In Brossart Varsity Basketball Lore With Made Free-Throw
| At right, even casual horseplayers should recognize Nick Zito. On Saturday they ran four stakes races worth a total of $800k including the
Holy Bull Stakes, an early Derby prep. It was won by a nice colt named Upstart.

Coach Mike Code took the opportunity to recognize four year varsity
manager Zach Born, on what would have otherwise been a rather
mundane formality 37th District seeding contest with Calvary Christian on
Tuesday evening in the SyDome, inserting "Boomer" into the lineup with
the contest well in hand.
Boomer responded by knocking down a free-throw, much to the delight
of his teammates, schoolmates, family and friends, thereby etching his
name into the long list of varsity scorers who have worn Brossart
uniforms since 1954. He might also be the answer to some future
Brossart Basketball Trivia Question - Name a Brossart player who scored
the only point scored in a varsity quarter???
Zach came out for the freshmen team four years ago, and when cut was
asked to join the program as its team manager. That same year
"Boomer" was recruited by Head Coach Mike Code to perform similar
services for the varsity, a duty that he has performed admirably ever
since. He also is manager for baseball and football. He will have three
senior banners, a good start to wallpapering his room, or future home.
Recently Kara Wheat ducked into the gym, while baby-sitting two young children while their mother was upstairs taking
a P&G survey. The little boy, who was about four years old, was watching the activity intently, when he made the
statement "That player is a good shooter." I said, "The player on the wing?" To which he firmly answered, "No, the kid
in the blue shorts." The kid in the blue shorts was Boomer, honing his shooting skills at the far basket, preparing for
upcoming IBL competition.
The coaches had kicked this idea around for a couple of weeks, and upon getting the thumbs up from his Mom and
Dad, put the plan into action. In his pre-game talk Coach Code touched on commitment and dedication, and then gave
Zach a uniform and told him to Suit-Up. To which Boomer went straight to the Trainer's office to get his ankles taped.
Zach has been included on our KHSAA Eligibility List for just such an occasion.
Coach Code reports that it was a great night all-around, with the Mustangs winning our 10th Game of the season. We
were hoping to pick up a game for this weekend, but so far that hasn't happened. At present our next engagement is a
week away on Tuesday, February 3rd when we host the Wonderkind - Austin Crawford, and the Bracken County Polar
Bears for a tripleheader.
I will post the box score of the game when I receive it. I failed to ask Coach Code if either Kory Quitter or Luke Flottman
scored their first varsity points. I'll make sure to give them props if they did.
