Our boys went to Lemoore trying to get their first win in league. They haven’t been playing their A game and are 0-3 so far in league and 12-6 so far for the season. The Tigers, being 2-1 in league, were not scared of our boys coming to get buckets and not letting El D score for the first couple mins of the game.

 

But, the Miners wake up and take over from there. It would get a little better and the Tigers would trail by like 3 at the end of the first quarter and at the end of the first half they were trailing by 6. The third quarter was the Miner’s best quarter of the night stopping the Tigers from getting what they wanted. The Miners, in the third, had an 18 point lead. In the fourth the Tigers just got tired and would turnover the ball not knowing what to do. The Miners got their first win in league ending the game winning 51-40.  

 

The Key players for this game was Seth Hall, Trenton Mitchell, and Kaleb Daglesh. Seth Hall, a point guard/shooting guard, came in hot hitting deep threes like always. Then there was Trenton and Kaleb, the Miners tallest players, who got big inside the paint and getting rebounds not letting anyone bully them.

As of this year, the American Rock band We The Kings, celebrates the 10-year anniversary of their self-titled debut album We The Kings, which was released in 2007. To celebrate the hit debut album’s 10th year anniversary, the band announced a special tour called “WTK 10”. The tour was first announced on social media  in December of 2016 to the fans who love the album. As soon as the announcement was released to the public, fans rushed to get their tickets.

 

There is also an option to purchase a VIP ticket to meet the band and take a photo with them as well. VIP also comes with 1 limited edition tour print, 1 exclusive We The Kings beanie, 1 holographic laminate and 1 custom printed lanyard. Back in August of 2016, I had the chance to meet the whole band at the Vans Warped Tour in Mountain View, California. The band is very sweet to their fans and are always so happy to give their fans the best experience they could possibly have.
The band will be playing their entire album We The Kings at every show on the tour, as well as some other songs off of their other albums. They will also be playing some of their hit songs, such as “Check Yes Juliet”, “Secret Valentine” and “Skyway Avenue” at each show. The tour will go on in February and March throughout the U.S., and will continue on in the U.K.

Democratic Inauguration Boycott

At least sixty Democratic members of the House of Representatives have made it clear of their decision to miss the inauguration ceremonies on Friday, most widely recognized, Georgia Representative John Lewis. Lewis said last week that he did not consider Trump a “legitimate” president.

 

“I think he just grandstanded, John Lewis, and then he got caught in a very bad lie, so let’s see what happens,” said Trump, in referring to Lewis’ claim that the Trump inauguration would be the first one that he has ever missed, but Trump brought up the fact that he had previously boycotted George W. Bush’s 2001 inauguration. Lewis’ office committee later claimed they had forgotten the incident, as it was sixteen years ago.

 

Trump said, “You don’t forget something like that”. Later Trump added that he’d be willing to sit down with Lewis, but said, “We’re off to a bad start.” As for other Democratic lawmakers not attending, Trump said, “that’s OK, because we need seats so badly, I hope they give me their tickets.”

 

The now President of the United States also touched on his use of social media, most favored, Twitter, which he confirms he will continue using as president. “Look, I don’t like tweeting. I have other things I could be doing,” Trump told Fox News insiders. “But I get very dishonest media, very dishonest press, and it’s my only way that I can get out and correct” he adds. One third of the House of Representatives are set to boycott the inauguration, most for which reasons they said they do not feel it is morally right to attend the ceremony.
