I just plain forgot. To blog, that is. It may be seen is a sign. Or it may just be something else altogether.
We had a good weekend. Maggot 2's team won 4-2 against a local team who, in the closed season, beat us 4-0, so it was with some satisfaction that the final whistle blew. And when it did blow, I got a further small insight in to the machinations of junior football. The ref was provided, as is standard protocol, by the home team, and he managed to make 3 minutes at the end of the match last for 9 minutes, presumably in the hope his team could close the gap. Our dads, certainly those who have been on the scene for a while, were very vocal, since apparently this particular ref has defied the space-time continuum in the past. Anyway, we won, after a shaky start, and the victory was very much enjoyed by all. The opposition team, according to Maggot 2, were not so sporting during the post-match handshakes, employing all sorts of "intimidating" actions, such as sqeezing hard, banging shoulders, and for three of the team, crying a lot. It is going to be a long season.
Otherwise, we did not do much. We had A&E over for dinner Saturday night, and as is often the case with our sociable friends, we perhaps over-indulged in the social juice, so Sunday was, after football, a bit of a washout.
I did manage to watch some rugby over the weekend, and now am definitely a Japan supporter. What a magnificent game. With time over at the end of the match, and a penalty awarded to Japan, they could have kicked, and drawn the game, but oh no, they chose to scrum, twice I think, before then ran in a try to win the game. Such audacity, such sound belief in their abilities, and a great never-say-die attitude. Can't wait to see more of that. It is going to be a long, but very enjoyable, six weeks.
I hope you had a good weekend, and have a great week.
