My husband advised me that I should “get a hobby.” I think that is boy code for I am sick of you. Either way I decided to load up my calendar with various clubs and activities that would fancy Matthew. One of which is my card club where we make homemade cards for all occasions, I am getting pretty good and I am thinking of making a side job out of it! If you need cards, invitations, or thank you notes hit me up. The other is my co-ed football team Beer, Sweat, & Regret. Obviously I was not responsible for the team name since I am not a drinker.
Teams have the option of signing up a full team or signing up individually to hope by some miracle your team of misfits has some sort of talent. Mostly because I do not have 13 friends that live in Austin, and partially for better blog material, l I chose to sign up as an individual. For sanity, I asked my good friend Brittany Burton to join along in this adventure with me. Our team is full of random strangers that have absolutely no natural chemistry.
Let me introduce you to the main players I have met thus far:
Brandon: Brandon is a former Marine and therefore makes a natural captain/coach. Brandon is probably one of my favorite characters on the team. I am super competitive (that is the reason why Matt wouldn’t sign up with me. Rude! ) but Brandon has me beat by far! Prior to our first game today he sent out the official playbook, so on breaks I have been shamelessly studying the many routes planned for tonight.
Byron: Byron is a large, black man and rather quiet. But when he says something I cracks me up. You can tell he is there for a good time, and is just an all-around a good guy! When someone mentioned they went to church on Sunday, his response was “I went to Churches!” (As in churches chicken) haha. We will be friends.
Chris: Chris has the most energy I have seen of any adult in all my life. He is always bouncing around and pulling faces and facing off with Brandon as to who is the better quarterback. Just so happens Chris slightly resembles Tom Brady, while Brandon slightly resembles Tim Tebow. I like Chris and think he is hilarious mostly because upon meeting him he says, “You don’t drink? Then what do you do?” (gives me no time to answer) “I heard you do what you would normally do, except just don’t drink!” (probably true) Then he continues, “That sounds miserable!”
Angela: Angela is the team mom, she keeps us all updated and on track. Not to mention she is super-fast and zigzags down the field, till she loses you! She is like a real life Katniss.
Lauren O: Lauren reminds me of one of the guys. She is always telling me what position to play and how she wants things done. I have a feeling we may be best of friends or we may clash once and a while. But I did already warn her I am bringing my mouth guard. Not for football purposes… but just in case I get into a fight.
So far those are all the characters along with Brittany and I. Tonight we have a double header against two of last year’s champions. Updates will follow. Just forewarning if we lose the next post might be explicit. Well as explicit as I can possibly be.
