The summer sessions begin. Imagine a cool band and a neat catch phrase and some awesome celebrity asking if we are ready for some Aussie Rules Footy! Welcome to 2014 Saturday Morning Footy. YEAH! Unfortunately, the first week was rained out. So this week, a little rain was not going to stop us… if Arlington agreed… whew, they agreed. In spite of the weather we had a pretty strong turnout. Several new players and plenty of returning players, probably close to 30 in all. It is going to be another great season.
Coach Chris started us with some fundamental kicking and hand passing followed by the traditional Sharks and Minnows. This is always a reminder that I did not do enough cardio during the off season and that I need work on fitness. Thanks Coach Chris! After some of the basics, we decided to break off into to smaller groups.

It has been a cold, snowy winter here in the DC Metropolitan area. Who would have thought that it would ever end…at last… Spring! Sigh. Take a minute and breathe it in. It’s ok, I’ll wait. The cherry blossoms are beginning to bloom as the last of the snow is slowly begins melting away.
It’s time to let ‘em fly!
Burleys and Sherrins! (I like the way that sounds.)
Springtime means it’s time to knock off the rust, break out the boots and have a kick! It is a reminder to all of us who slacked off during the winter months, guilty right here, that we need to work on our fitness and get ready for the upcoming Saturday Morning Footy summer sessions. As always, I was happy to see so many familiar faces. It was great to see some new ones too, even if they are Tiger and Cats supporters, at least it’s not that other club.
