A First ...
We're proceeding with the season until we can't...
A new kid signed up, he was drawn from a hat & we got him.
We got though warm-ups, stance, replacement step & form-fit for blocking and took a water break... it was pretty miserable humidity-wise... so we planned several water breaks. But basically, we haven't done anything strenuous or challenging yet.
New kid says he doesn't have any water. HC gave him 2 bucks to get a gator-aid at the concession stand. This kid had been moving like molasses so far... suddenly takes off like he's shot out of canon. We chuckled, HC said, 'he must like gator aid..."
Kid never came back. Looks like he skipped town with the $2.
Parents had stayed for practice, we never saw them either... curious if we will hear back from them.
So, this is a first for us ... Just when you think you've seen it all....
Umm.... why does that 6 ft tall 9 yr old have a goatee...?
