I had a special opportunity last week. With out giving you the whole long explanation, there were extra seats on the bus this weekend, and a complementary suite at the hotel the team was staying at. (Ahh...the perks :) Anyway, my darling husband some how convinced me that it would a really fun to:
Board a charter bus at midnight Thursday evening with 80 football players
drive 16 hours on said bus
attend a 7pm game in South Dakota (temp 30 degrees at game time)
and drive BACK 16 hours on said bus
You know what, he was right. We left the kiddos with a sitter and even though there was not a ton of alone time, the team was really excited to have fans on the trip. We browsed at malls on the stops, there was an Xbox tournament for the team, and I chatted with players, getting to know them better and allowed them to see another side of coach more closely. It was a great way to end the season...but it didn't! We're headed to post season play this weekend! Who would have ever guessed after such a rough start!
Next week's post...endurance :)
