French FriesWe ate barbecue at Eli 14.7s favorite place today. They serve some food (french fries, for example), in little paper "boats".
Eli always orders french fries, and I always eat a few. Today, one had fallen out of the boat and onto the table, and I picked it up and ate it.
"Hey!" Eli said.
"It fell off the boat," I said. "If it falls off the boat, it's in international water."
"Excuse me, maritime law is not in effect here!" he said.
This is a big time coming up for Eli 14.7. He's trying out for a tier one team in Michigan, one of the top programs in the country.
That's a huge move, potentially, for him, even though he went to TAC and played as well as the tier one goalies there. By any reasonable standard, this seems like a slim chance.
It doesn't feel like one, though.
He's in unbelievable shape. He's never played better. The adult shooters (all former college players) who shoot on him are having a hard time scoring on him now. I don't think he could be any sharper than he is right now.
So it's time.
I think he has a very good chance. The program he's trying to join is exactly where I think he would develop most as a person. The hockey will sort itself out.
