Mini Assignment #2
You might have an idea of who I am already from having read the title to this guest post I’ve been asked to do. You’ll have to wait until the end for confirmation. But you don’t know me and you never can. At least not behind the mask.
I’m the guy who swings around New York City, trying to keep people safe. It’s not always easy, especially when some new supervillain emerges, as they inevitably do. I don’t know where they come from, but they sure wreak havoc on my life.
Not only do they leave me with some bruises and scars, they also disrupt a lot of the things I enjoy in life. It might come as a bit of a surprise seeing as I’m just a nerdy kid from Queens with a passion for science, but I also love sports.
Sadly, being a superhero (that’s what they call me anyways) cuts into a lot of my relaxation time, so I don’t often get a chance to sit down and watch a good game of baseball in the evenings. Growing up I loved watching my hometown New York Mets with my Uncle Ben, but these days I don’t get to catch many games. After all, nighttime is when most of my enemies come out.
This weekend has been a little quiet on the police radio though, so I’ve been able to catch some golf on TV. I’ve always enjoyed that success in the sport comes down to skillful swinging, because it’s something I happen to know very well. A different kind of swinging, sure, but swinging nonetheless.
Today is the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship where my favourite golfer and biggest fan, Camilo Villegas is tied for 14th place. I won’t go into details, but this video should give you an idea as to why he’s my go-to guy on Tour.
Unfortunately, he’s finished his final round already, but a couple of my other favourite guys are still playing. Based on my spelling of the words ‘favourite’ and ‘neighbourhood’ you might be able to guess their nationalities.
Currently tied for 14th and 30th place, respectively, Canadian golfers Corey Connors and Roger Sloan are two players I admire not only for their play, but also for their country. You see, I wouldn’t change my position for anything in the world. I love helping people. But life in New York City can get pretty rough.
Sometimes I envy the Canadian people and their much lower crime rates across the country. It sure would make my life easier. So, I just like to think if we could be a little bit more like our neighbours to the north down here in the states, things might not be so crazy.
Anyways, I’ve gone on longer than anticipated. Just always remember these words told to me by late Uncle Ben: “With great power comes great responsibility.”
