Connected Students

As I had suspected it turns out I teach the niece of our new Premier. I am also taking one of the Premier's nephews down to Iqaluit next weekend for a soccer tournament. Small world.

This picture really has nothing to do with the Premier or soccer. I just think it's a unique thing to be able to walk into the classroom next to mine and see a giant piece of whale spine. Just thought I'd share.

I have also been fighting an urge over the past several days to rant about a frustration I see with soccer and organized sports in the territory generally. But seeing as I'd be flinging the vitriol around with pretty wild abandon, its probably best that I focus on other things instead. Sorry for the tease.
