Oh, should I have put a spoiler alert before that title?
Last night was another summer league game. It was another hard fought battle. But we lost yet again, 15-17 this time around.
For me, the highlight was getting to play against Chuck, a man three decades older than me, so in other words a man I can almost keep up with. Man, I really need to get faster with my running. Anyway, he’s a stand up guy who is always fun to play against.
I even got a D. It helped that they hucked it down the field to Chuck, but it came right to me. I caught it and passed it on.
I almost scored, too. It went over a teammate’s head and was coming right to me. But just before I got it, Chuck managed to get the D. Fortunately, he swatted it, and it went to my teammate who successfully caught it. She bobbled it a bit first, but she did manage to get control.
Other than that, I did get opened a bit more than I had before and was able to get some nice gains. Sadly, I missed a couple of the discs and threw it away twice, once for a score.
My team thought I did great, but I was frustrated. I don’t know if I really play better at pick up or if I just feel that way since I’m not keeping track of every mistake I make. At least I’m the one who is hardest on me on the field, which I always appreciate.
Next week is out week off, and then we play on Friday, so it will be two and a half weeks before we play again.
