Well we had our first home game last night in High School football, and yes I was there as promised, having a lesson and trying to get into it.
I actually enjoyed the whole experience in the bleachers. Being the secretary at the Elementary means I now know even more people than I did before, so it was very sociable. I sat with the hubster, some of my sorority sisters and their husbands.
It was a beautiful evening and our 5 times State Champions team are on an undefeated run of 73 wins. The band was in great form, as usual I loved watching the cheerleaders and we scored with a 64 yard touchdown from the opening kick-off!
We ended up winning 46-0 in the first half, so it was a short game, which is often the case. And therein lies a problem. They often win in the first half, so it's going to take me awhile to learn the game when they're all so short! In fact nearly all those points were scored in the first quarter and the second string got to play the second quarter.
But there were definite similarities to rugby, it was faster moving than I expected and I actually really enjoyed the whole evening. The team even got a mention on the Oklahoma news channels tonight.
Our results to date: 50-0, 44-6, 44-6, 46-0 - Gooo Indians!
