For a guy who had a lawyer for a dad, this was a pretty stupid move. Trent Allen had been teasing me with threats for a period of time during our senior year. Seems he had an itchin' to rip my basketball goal off it's post, bolts & all.
"Why?" you may ask. Just because it'd be fun. To Trent. You remember Trent*... always wanting to have fun - at your expense. Well, after quite a bit of smack he finally made his fatal mistake - he documented his devious desires.
Above you'll see Exhibit A: the actual document whereby Trent (and accomplice Andy Crouse) signed off on a reconnaissance report detailing the difficulty of above stated intent (i.e., ripping down my goal). Now, I'll admit I did manipulate the image of this document... inverting the black & white colors to help you get the evil feel of the sinister, malicious nature of this crime.
Documenting your intent... this is an obvious no-no in the crime world - I mean, I would guess. It's like calling ahead to the bank before you show up to rob it - simply foolish and worthy of nothing but ridicule! But he did. And he never got caught - neither of them - for they never reached their goal.
Or should I say, they never reached my goal.
*Trent is still a dear friend and we talk regularly. Please know that this post, as well as many others are my feeble attempts at sarcasm & humor.
