We have our annual meeting on the 29th, and then about 3 weeks till scrimmages, and December 1st our season begins.

In the meantime, my eye doctor appt. is next week, and I [ shudder ] will ask about contacts.

They were both blowouts. It was a short night. Tipped first game at 6:00 and I was home in my chair watching baseball @ 8:05. I noticed two things. Since most of my lower level were in SIJHSAA before, the games last night were shorter because the SI... gives the 8th graders 7 minutes quarters. Also, since about 50% of my games before I moved were in Indiana, I noticed that I went through the entire first game without anyone threatening to kill me or questioning whether or not my parents were married. Nearly every coach I saw in IN was either a Bobby Knight or Gene Keady knock off. (So were the parents!)
I also had to catch myself backpeddling at first. In soccer, in the dual system, you often have to come out the part of the field not far from the penalty area running @ full speed backwards for a while. After about the third time I stopped that. Also my second foul in game two was a team control so I got to do the punch thing for the first time.

I stopped doing that after I fell backwards one time and broke my wrist. Good to see you stopped before that happened to you.

Also, I see you now know Illinoisians are much more civilized than their Indiana neighbors.

I've got a couple of pre-season scrimmages coming up this weekend, so I'm anxious to get out on the floor again as well. Hope the rest of your games are just as smooth.
