Diary Of A Baller: Malachi "Shoota" Richardson (Trenton, NJ) Entry #3

What's Up Everybody!

This week of school was good; during back to school night held on Thursday, the PTA had the annual super 50/50 raffle, first prize was a little over $9000. When they announced the winning ticket the lady that won just sat there all quiet; if that was me I would have been jumping around like crazy. My mom said maybe she was in shock. Come on now winning $9 grand at least show some kind of emotion.

Basketball....This week was a great week for me. I Got My First Dunk.....well sort of....my boy Naz Chew said it look like you don't know what you're doing once it's time to put it down. I was above the rim; but the ball slipped out of my hand, it did to in though..lol. As far as my workouts; I worked out at TCA (Trenton Catholic Academy) and LCA (Life Center Academy). We worked on strength, conditioning, dribble drills and shooting drills. I also had my personal workout (lower body) this was the first time I've really been able to work on my legs without being nervous about hurting my groin. There was no soreness, stiffness or pain afterwards. I've been holding back for months and now that I'm
100% healthy, I'm ready to take my lower body workout to the next level. One of my goals is to dunk in a game this year (2010).

Saturday, I was suppose to watch two local high schools Hamilton and Nottingham go at it in football which is a huge rivalry; but I decided to stay home and get a jump on this novel that we have to read by next Friday. Waking up late played a part in my decision also. I heard it was a very good game Nottingham pulled it out in double OT 27-24. I'm good friends with a lot of the Hamilton guys it's going to be interesting to hear their play by play of the game. Saturday night I watched my boy Tyleer play football, he was a beast out there. I think if they gave him the ball more they could have pulled it out. On Sunday I watched my favorite team play (Eagles). Vick is the Man! I was hoping the Cowboys lost again so I can talk junk to my Dad, those bums pulled it out, oh well!

Until Next Week......PEACE
