Lessons from the Field

Vince Lombardi once said, "Football is like life - it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority."

Excellent quote about life. Maybe not so much applicable to our game of flag football tonight. But, alas, it was not a waste. We did learn a few minor, insignificant lessons that made it worth our while... 
  • Playing on a nice, non-rainy night significantly improves your game. And doesn't make you feel like such a girly girl when trying to catch the ball. 
  • Despite the increased confidence from the weather, you can still be heckled and told you catch like a girl from some d-bag from the other team. Joke's on you buddy. I am a girl. And at least I caught it. If it didn't sound like you meant to actually hurt my feelings, or upset me in any way, I may have taken that one as a compliment...
  • People don't just get hyped up on pills on the weekends. Turns out... they do that on Mondays too... and then decide to prance around the field during multiple flag football games. This most likely will cause rent-a-cop to come out of the darkness like a baseball player in "Field of Dreams"... and calm this crazy crack chica down. Subsequently completely distracting one team... resulting in a touchdown. Dang Monday night druggie. Dang you.
  • A forfeit is just as good as a valid W.
  • JT can play flag football... all while wearing a stylish jersey boy cap and vintage adidas pants... rip in the knee. Runway model goes football. No complaints here.
  • Hot Pockets CAN apparently be warmed over table candle light without tasting like citronella... 
Team TDMP... am I missing anything? Tell on...
