Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

Saturday, January 30, 2010


Last night we went to the Utah State Junior High Wrestling Championships for 1A, 2A, and 3A. Can you believe that---Championships for Junior High? Anyway we have a grandson that was wrestling. He lost last night but wrestles again today at least one more match. It is really hard for me to believe that they are having this tournament. I guess it truly is the State Championship because all the kids are there but it is amazing to me that they would put that kind of pressure on the kids that are participating.

Since I wrestled in high school and college it is fun for me to watch. Probably not so for my spouse but she's a good sport and goes anyway. There are some super good young wrestlers at this meet. The future of wrestling in Utah looks good.

Where we live they start them out really young and have tournaments all over the state. By the time they get to High school, most of these kids have tremendous experience. I have one son that wrestled, but I never wanted him to do it year round with the non-school teams because I couldn't stand to give up every Saturday. For the record, he didn't want to make that commitment either. He wrestled two seasons and did pretty well, but then wanted his life back. :)
