It was a warm and sunny Sunday in September. It was almost
too hot, but the day was ripe for an intense game of football.
In the early morning, players begin to gather around the Van
Boekkelen Elementary School field. After the pregame
stretches and trash talking, we quickly divided into two teams.
The game play was intense and everyone got involved. The
level of play took a whole new level when players had to
dodge poop rags on the field while running their routes.
Jason and Young took the leadership role exchanging play
time at quarterback for Team 'Bad Guys.' Alvin laid out for
several passes and KC made several solid catches as well.
Kevin and John towered over the defense's cornerbacks
while Ian provided the protection for the quarterback. Veteran
player Rebecca showcased her skills as well. Team 'Good
Guys,' a collection of rag-tag players, was led by the quiet
leadership of Brian Marron, the speed of Brian Dolbeare, the
defensive dominance of Lora, and the trash talking of Jeff
Schneider. Kate contributed several catches and Lisa put
herself on the scoreboard by catching one in the end
In the end, Team Good Guys was victorious. It was hard
fought and I was incredibly impressed with the effort
displayed. The competitive spirit showed through for
everyone and after handshakes, we headed out to Friday's
for drinks. The insane eight-car caravan to the bar was led by
the lead car, Chih, as the other players weaved their cars in
and out of traffic. Everyone managed to survive the caravan
and football game with no serious injuries, so it was a good
day. Thanks for coming out everyone; be ready for a rematch
in the future.
