Pre-Season Get Together

What a great day the boys had for a run and a kick.  The LSU parade grounds were a soft emerald green and the skies perfectly partly cloudy.  We warmed up a bit with kicking footies, foot passing soccer balls, and throwing footballs.  With Neil and Rob picking teams, we kicked off our day with soccer where the teams ended in a one to one tie after twenty minutes.  After a some much needed oxygen and water, our next sport was American Football, light tackle. Our group picked up two LSU Students, Tyler and Ross who joined opposing teams. Team Rob came out on top with a two to one score (single points for touchdowns).  Then, with our winter joints oiled and a little bit of athletic rust shaken off, we jumped into some footy.  There were some great defensive plays, some good movement of the footy with hand balls and drop kicks. Team Rob came out on top again at the end of twenty minutes. Both Tyler and Ross showed great promise, learning the ropes of Aussie Rules and getting into the mix of things. We also had a great sideline crew with Robin (resting for a Marathon), Nicki (out with a pulled back), and Elise (photographer).  Next on the list…First Practice – Feb 22.  More to come.
