Last night at practice, we found out our scrumhalf Casey is stuck down in Chicago for work. So yeah, I’m scrumhalfing this Saturday. The joy with which I’m anticipating playing … well, I just have a lot more to remember now when I’m playing.
Like, I don’t know, which side of the scrum I put the ball in on (LEFT! The hand opposite my right one!) or figuring out our lineout plays again so I know which jumper to look for a pass from (or the one with the ball!!) or trying to remember to not hesitate just because I’m not really sure what I am doing.
So, yeah. I’ll just go all out hopefully and see what happens …
Not much blogging today … I have a redwood’s worth of work piled up.
On top of this, at work I am dealing with this whole bad spinach issue (If you have prepackaged spinach in your home/work, please throw it out and do not eat it.) and I find this especially interesting b/c I like to eat spinach, but haven’t bought any lately because the bags always give you too much and it’s too expensive. Good thing they don’t have mini-bags, b/c I would probably have E. coli now.
And I also have to call one of our rookies, a young developmental player who’s taking a bit of attitude with the decision that she’s not ready for a-side and she’s most likely a b-side starter. Seriously, if you are young, inexperienced or not physically fit or some combo thereof, playing b-side games helps you get there. There is a reason that players are selected up to A-side and it is because they are busting their asses, showing up at practice and have been working hard to learn the game.
I’m just really irked sometimes at this sense of entitlement that people get sometimes. What’s up with that?
Maybe I’ll go eat some spinach …
