    need to stop with this, we’re all tired of how you’ve been acting lately!” Thomas said. “Oh yeah? well if you’re so tired of me then why don’t you do something about it!” Blake responded. I could tell by the look of rage on his face that he was about to. I told him to just calm down and let the coach handle it. However, he made the mistake of telling Blake he could not do anything anyways. Blake jerked around and charged at T knocking him straight on to the hard ground. He stumbled up…
