It was the perfect end to my senior year of softball. The scoreboard just beyond the mass of sweaty, screaming softball players read 15-0. This was the final score of the district championship game, a game my team had never won before. The applause and cheers of the fans echoed in my ears for hours afterward As I lay on my bed, that night I could still hear the umpire calling “ballgame” and solidifying victory and our mark on Mountain Grove Softball history....   [tags: Baseball, Softball, Baseball rules, First baseman]

What was the point Lincoln was trying to make.

COLD MOUNTAIN

- COLD MOUNTAIN Since Cold Mountain does not heavily rely on dialogue to tell the story, the point of view Frazier uses to narrate the story is important: He must create the effect of being enveloped in two separate worlds, and give insight into characters who have no one to discuss their thoughts with.

A romantic story is especially suited for this type of narration, because romances revolve not around events, but emotions, which are difficult to describe objectively....   [tags: Essays Papers]
