This is where my life gets boring….not for me…..for you.

Lacrosse has started and we’re 12 games into the 50-60 we’ll play, attend, take stats for and talk about incessantly for the next 8 weeks.

But seriously, who doesn’t like a sport where people could die? I mean, if there are 10 warnings: “You could die playing this sport.” on a helmet, it’s a game for me. I wouldn’t play. But I like to watch others take their lives into their hands. I love blood and gore.
I probably would have been a great gladiator spectator.

Anyway, between the two boys, we had 8 games last week. Garrett is playing Long Stick Middie (LSM) for Varsity and Tine Baby (Parker) is playing Attack for Junior Varsity. I am the booster club president for the third year (or maybe it’s the fourth). We rewrote our bylaws last year and I tried to term limit myself out. They saw right through my ploy.

I also attempt to keep the Coach’s stats for the Varsity games. That’s a whole different story.

Grandview vs. Heritage - Saturday, March 14, 2009

Wow! Wow! Wow! That’s really about all I can say or even repeat. We don’t even need to talk about the score or even the players.

How about the other team’s stat taker getting EJECTED 1st quarter for telling the ref where to go?
How about the other team having a goal taken AWAY for sending in a player who wasn’t even on their roster?
How about the other team’s coach telling the ref that his calls were F*%$ing B.S……but he didn’t say star, percentage, dollar sign.
How about the ref saying that the coach would be EJECTED?
How about the other team’s players saying the F word constantly? I did tell one player that if he said it one more time, he would be kicked out. Hmmmm….could I have enforced that?
How about the other team sending ANOTHER player who wasn’t on their roster into the game? I guess they are slow learners.
How about the ref approaching the table (neutral zone where we take the stats) and saying that he HATES refing Varsity games.

Enough of THAT game!

Today is a new day with two new games and hour away. The weather is great. Hope springs eternal!

MAn I really liked going to those few LAX games. You have to let me know I would love to come to a few of their games. I could help you enforce the swearing thing if you need me to, maybe not legally but who cares about that. Good luck and GOOOOO GRANDVIEW!!!!

Ugh. The other team would have driven me crazy. Sounds like you are pretty busy during the Lacrosse season!

Wow. That's just crazy. Nothing like that ever happens at karate tournaments.
