The red team who were the Mapua Cardinals include Jimenez, Ranises, Pascual, Mazo, Bernales, Guillermo, Co, and Del Rosario. It was an exciting game from the first to the last quarter of the game. Each team has the determination to win especially the Mapua Cardinals when they struggle to earn more points in the two last quarters of the game. The red team had a hard time in the first two quarters of the game but they instantly regain their lead as one of the team shot three-points.

I have tried many things on the menu and two of my most favorite are the steak fajitas and the charbroiled chicken burrito. The fajitas come to the table sizzling on a skillet with a side of refried beans and rice. The vegetables included with the fajitas are grilled zucchini, grilled red peppers, grilled yellow peppers, grilled mushrooms, and grilled onions. These vegetables with steak and tortillas make for a mouthwatering burst of flavors that are perfect. The charbroiled chicken burrito is a fulfilling tortilla that is stuffed with lots of cheese and tender chicken that makes every bite better than the…

    I always play soccer at Arabic school and I’m always bad at it compared to the people I’m playing with. In basketball, I play with my friends in my backyard and sometimes in Ali and Abbas’s backyard. In football we play always have a big game of 9 on 9 or 10 on 10 at the park. When we are playing in my backyard, we usually play like 6 on 6 or 5 on 5. When we play baseball, we have to play at the park because once we were playing in my backyard and Ali was up to bat. Jamal pitches the ball and it flies over the fence and goes to the train tracks. That happened at least 10 times. My dad got mad because he kept wasting money on baseballs so we can play. He buys them because he wants us to get better in the sport. What kind of sports do you guys like? I know that some people don’t play sports. SO you don’t have to answer the…
