Alright, I’m not going to try and make it seem like it was a comfortable day because it sure was cold! It was about 37 degrees outside but that didn’t deter 7 faithful (or idiotic) players from getting out for a run!
We played a three on four game with the try scorer switching teams. It worked out well but most of us were getting tired pretty quickly. Was it the cold? Were we just unfit? Probably both! But we endured! Chris surprised us with a new move that we need to put in the playbook. Let’s call it the “brake and squat.” It was impressive with Chris shirking to half his size in a squat and ducking down to totally get some around flailing arms.
After a few hot coco/water breaks we decided 2.5hrs of play was long enough and a best to three game begin. Chris looked like a little boy at Christmas when he discovered the team with three could just tap the ball to resume play. The defense was consistently offside which led to the first try. We decided zombies in movies knew geometry and continued to end the game with a 3-2 victory.
Joe arrived just in time with the beverages and a smile on his face. We took a group photo to show all of you slackers that we could still have a great game despite the temperatures!
2014 has been a great year. Let’s see 2015 come with even more touch rugby fun and spirit. See you all next year! We will continue to play at McCree park until about mid January.
Have a great new years celebrations and look after your loved ones!
