Well we just played our first game of the season on Wednesday and just like last year’s first game…. WE WON!!!!
It was a great game against Thacher’s JV squad, but we came out on top.
The game started of with an upbeat tempo.
One of our running-backs, Min Choi, scored a touchdown on the first play of the game.
I thought I was going to be a lot more excited when that happened, but I felt like crap.
I had been fighting a gnarly cold all week and I still am.
I had crap in my lungs making it hard to breathe, and I was just generally exhausted from being sick.
On top of that I was stupid and forgot to drink anything during the day which is unlike me. I was so crazy dehydrated during the game that I kept getting dizzy, and I didn’t really pay attention to what was going on; I kind of just played and that was it.
Anyways, it was still fun to play.
Playing a game is always fun especially when the score climbs and climbs and climbs, with nothing on the opposition’s side.
By about 8 minutes left in the 4th quarter the score was 44-0 in our favor.
Thacher ended up scoring shortly after that, but it wasn’t enough to make a come back.
We were very excited to play, and we as a team are looking forward to playing Trinity Classical Academy next week.
It is going to be a very tough game, as Trinity was 5th in California last year, but we are a different team then we have ever been.
Before our games and during practice sometimes I lead a chant where I ask my team what season it is. The answer to the question…. THE SEASON!
This is the season for OVS football. Almost our entire team is seniors. We have all played and started for 3-4 years. The total years between all the players is what all high school teams are looking for.
Not to mention, or defensive and offensive line adds up to close to 1,000 pounds of pure man.
I hope this season goes well and I hope we go undefeated. The only downfall to us going undefeated is that I made a bet with a teammate.
I bet him if we went undefeated I would pierce my nipple and my ear, and connect the two piercings with a chain.
I have no idea why I made this bet, but in the state of happiness I will be in if we win every game, I don’t think the pain will bother me.
Stay tuned to the blog to check on the well-being of my nipple, oh yeah and also how we do on the rest of our games.
This is THE SEASON!
