We kicked off the 2008-09 Season with a team dinner at my house Monday evening. As always, we eat a lot of food, some go back for seconds, and the seniors steal the leftovers!
This year the team also played an entertaining version of "SPOONS." Instead of your traditional competition, our team decided to make it an obstacle course. The first person to get the spoon on top of the STAIRS would be declared the winner.
What I didn't tell you is that our players began the first game fairly casually jogging up the stairs one by one. By the last game we had to put the lamp on the floor, watch players hurdle our sofa, pray the blinds and railing didn't bust, and bring out the "Lightning McQueen" bandaids for all of the injuries.
The evening was a blast, and this group has established itself once again as a cohesive team that will compete at anything and everything.
What they don't know, however, is that after watching them play spoons, I have written up a new BOX OUT DRILL for the season.
