Gridiron Coming to an End

Since Andrew and Rachelle brought us my football from home in November, (almost) every week a group of us have met in a park and played an informal game of touch football.

The weather has been excellent every time we have gone out to play. We have only been rained on a handful of times, and it's usually at the end of our game, anyway.

Every Tuesday (and, in March, every Wednesday) we met at 5:30 to play. Rules were adjusted every game to keep everyone on their toes, but mostly to accommodate the varying numbers of players.

Everyone has had a great time playing, and Travis and I had a fun time teaching people how to play.

The time changes next weekend... back to standard time from daylight savings time. It will be dark by 6:20, and that doesn't give us a lot of time to play ball without someone getting some serious injuries. We have to call it quits.

But, I came here to learn how to play rugby, not to teach people to play football. Hopefully our "football nights" will turn into "rugby afternoons on Sundays" in the fall.

Thank you to my friends who have come out every week to play. It's been great! You're all AWESOME!!!

Okay, I lied. We didn't stop playing football yet. We played on April 1. And we're planning to play again April 8, although we'd like to start at 5pm because we predict it'll be dark around 6:30pm. :(

It's just NOW starting to feel like football season - it's getting cool, the sun is going down. Feels like Thanksgiving football weather. Speaking of Thanksgiving... I should have a Sunday Thanksgiving meal. Wait a second... Easter will do...
