Eagle Blue, Week 5, post 1

2 vocab words:

Catatonic (187)-a syndrome seen most frequently in schizophrenia, characterized by muscular rigidity and mental stupor, sometimes alternating with great excitement and confusion.

Arsenal (190)-a collection or supply of anything

One emerging theme

An emerging theme in this book is favoritism. The crowd always seems to favor the Fort Yukon Eagles at the games. An example of this is when they were playing Tok, the crowd erupted with cheering when the Eagles came onto the floor, but not so much for Tok. Some of the players think it is because all of the kids on the Eagles are natives of the land, and many of the other teams have only 1 native, if even that.
