basketball & sunshine

The Wasilla High vs. Barrow High game was insanely close (Wasilla won though -- boo), but the game was so fun to watch. Yes, you heard right. I just said watching a game of the athletic nature was FUN. See how I am broadening my horizons? Go me.

It seemed like the entire town was there. I saw practically all of my students there. Many teachers were there too. It's the thing to do on a Friday or Saturday night.

The booster club was selling dinner -- anything from Vietnamese ham soup to spaghetti to burgers. I got a burger for five bucks. Not bad for Barrow prices at all! Raffle prizes were being advertised. The high school band played during the game.

I didn't go to the Bethel game, but I heard the Whalers won. For the first time, I'm rooting for a team. I'm not apathetic. Somebody pat me on the back. ;)

Today's stats:
Temperature: -27
Wind Speed: 7 mph
Wind Chill: -46
Sunrise: 12:28 p.m.
Sunset: 2:52 p.m.

We had the most beautiful pink dusky sky this afternoon. I can't wait to see more Barrow sunsets.
