On Sunday, my team had a double header against the Brooklyn Bulldogs. They are a really good team, but I thought we could beat them.In the first game, we did pretty well. We hit well, but they had great defense, so we lost by 1 point. But it was REALLY close. In our last licks, we had 2 outs and a runner on 3rd when we got the last out. I hit 8th in the order and  got an RBI. In the second game, it was also really close. We were losing by one run with a runner on 2nd when one of our players struck out for the last out of the game. I don't blame him, since he had such heavy pressure.

After the game, we reflected on what we did well and what we needed to work on. Then my coach handed out bones. You can put bones(which you earn for making a good play or getting a good hit) on your helmet. Both me and my friend Sam got bones. Mine was for my RBI.

Field Trip

Today, my class went on a field trip to Lincoln Center to see a "poetry slam", which is an event where people read their poems to an audience. At the poetry slam there were three poets competing in 3 different rounds to have the best poems. In each round, there had to be a host to announce the poets in each round. So at the start of each round they "traveled back in time" and got a host. In the first round, the host was Cleopatra. In the second round, the host was Albert Einstein. In the final round, it was William Shakespeare. Also, in each round, they recited the same kinds of poems. For example, in the second round, They all wrote poems in the forms of letters to people they admire. Also, in the third round, they all did poems that were based off of one line of a poem written by a famous poet.

After the poetry slam, we ate lunch at Central Park. We ate on a huge rock formation. After we were done with our lunch, we played capture the flag, with a narrow and shallow trench as the territory line That meant that to get to enemy territory, you would have to jump the trench.

Rube Golberg Presentation

Today, Rube Goldberg's granddaughter, Jennifer Goldberg, came to our school. She gave a presentation about her grandpa, Rube Goldberg. She told us all about Rube. He was a cartoonist, and at the end of his career, he was a sculptor. He was most famous for his Professor Butt's cartoons in the newspapers all across the country. They were sketches of a whole series of things to complete a simple task. Fun Fact about Rube Goldberg: Only a couple of his "inventions" were actually created.
