Khap'Gok

That's Klingon for success.

My favorite part is that you think I'm joking.

But I'm not. I'm dead serious here.

It really is the klingon word for success. At least, it's how you'd spell the pronunciation.

I only know two Klingon words. Animal (Hawk-tuh-bah) and success (Cop-Gawk). Me and Darren Gardner decided that we were going to learn it one summer. We never actually did, but I managed to learn those two words. They've stuck with me ever since.

It was really funny, khap'gok actually squirreled itself into my regular vocabulary for a while back in the day. I was surprised when I found myself yelling Klingon interjections when I pulled off something awesome in sixth grade. I hadn't even meant to do it. But wow, I nailed that shot, and the first thing that came out of my mouth was a loud and nerdy Klingon translation for "Success!"

Yeah. I'm awesome.

The reason I relate this story is that today was a success. We won our Junior Jazz game; it was ferocious.

The first quarter was really good. Both teams played and matched each other. By the end of it, the score was Ten to Nine, our team up by one.

When the second quarter started, Brad, Jose, Jared, Cody, and I took the court. We were fresh from the bench, and the other team didn't have many subs. We were ready to run- they obviously weren't. We pulled our classic "Run-like-crazy-and-push-the-tempo-on-every-play-till-they-stop-trying" game plan. It worked surprisingly well.

At the end of the second quarter, the score was 30 to nine.

Yeah, we went on a 20-0 run there. We held them scoreless for the second quarter.

Dang straight. I'd like to thank our super fans for making it all possible.

The rest of the game was good times. The other team finally started picking it up in the fourth quarter, but by then it was way too late. We won by 25; our record is now 2-3.

The other guys did really play well, we were just too ferocious. They were trying to play man defense against a team that was running like crazy. Had they switched to zone things would have been a lot different. That's not the point though.

The game was a smashing success. We all had a good time.

And then, I came home, and worked like crazy and got a lot of stuff done. Project Formidable Aroma is sitting at 75% completion. It's shaping up to be really nice, I'm super excited to finish it up. w00t w00t.

To cap the evening off, I got to hang out with some of my friends. That was party time. I discovered that I can still do head-stands. I also discovered that I'm much better at head stands than I was last time I tried. Hooray for head-stands.

I had a lot of fun practicing my skills tonight. I greatly improved my M&M catching. I am now proficient in all sorts of comestible-catching.

Booyah Grandma.

What's the business? The business is that I'm going to bed. I'm a champion today.

Congratulations team 1101- we're unstoppable. Here's to a 5-3 record.

Good game. There's nothing more to say about it; it was just really good and fun.

You win with the M&M's for sure.

And you win with the headstands too. One day, it'll be the big thing. I see it now...
