 As I saw Richie step on the mat for his match I was a nervous wreck. I did not know what to expect, would he win or would he lose? Looking through the camera lense i knew the match had started.  The camera shaking in my hand, I tried to focus as hard as I could.  The match had come to an end as quick as it began, Richie had won his first match 4-0, over a tough opponet!  He only had one match today so off we went to get something to eat.  Richie chose Olive Garden his favorite resturaunt. After we had a nutritious and well pleasing dinner we headed back to the hotel.  Richie wasto busy clowing off with his siblings and two cousins to be worrying about anything.  The night was going well and I was happy and proud of Richie as the night grew near I knew that tomorrow would bring troubles.  He would have two very tough opponets, if he wanted to win Eastern Nationals.  The night was comming to an end when Richie came back iin the hotel room and was ready to crash.  I couldnt ask for the night to be any better!
