Rick Pitino

Journal, Day 7. LUKE: School was one of those Mondays that drag on quite a while but not much work. Though when I see it’s almost November I can’t really believe it. I’m not that normal in that I don’t really want to grow up but it’s a part of life and there is definitely...

Day 5: Saturday in the Ballpark

Journal Project Day 2 – A Test, A Trip in the Dark

October 15, 2014
Scott Martin of the Parklands of Floyds Creek

LUKE: Today the main exciting thing was we had a big test that a lot of people took. There seemed to be a lot of emphasis on it but it was pretty easy, actually very easy. In U.S. history we talked about how another victim has been affected in Dallas, though I saw a...
