GOING BACK IN TIME
When Pirates would sail the seas on long journeys, the captian of the ship would just sit at his desk with a candle and a feather pen marking the next spot on the map in search of treasure or their next attack on a fort. While the others were sound asleep, but of course it was not easy to sail the seas in the middle of the night while the ship is swaying back and fourth. And next to the candle would be a hour glass used in those days as a clock.
in this ship full of Pirates aboard the "The Bonecrusher" Capt. Skully is quietly keeping an eye on the ship. He stands in the quarterdeck looking through his spyglass for any other ships or land. And perhaps if he can perhaps see a kracken. It's a full moon and all is quiet so he makes his way to the Captian Corridors and sits down with his feather pen in his hand and a candle by his side then he glazes at the hour glass. He pulls out his ledger and opens it up and finds a page full important dates and reliazes it's a timeline containing some history of the Sinton Pirates and this is what he found

Sinton stunned previously unbeaten top 25 Ingleside with a game-winning two-point conversion attempt with five seconds to play, but there's a twist to the tale- Sinton originally kicked a game-tying PAT to send things to overtime, only to have a roughing the kicker penality give the Pirates an easy shot at two from about the one yard line. Freshman Tyler Handson dazzled, but not because of his stats- he turned a terrible game into a hero's effort on the final drive, turning around a one-completion, three-interception showing with three completions, including the game-winning touchdown throw from four yards, on his last four passes.
