Hi everybody (saying that makes me feel like the cheap doctor on the Simpsons who always seems to pop up and say that). Anyways, I hope that everyone is doing well and excited for the week to come to an end and the weekend to begin. I wish that I could say that I had some exciting plans for the weekend, but I dont. Last weekend we (Trilogy Lacrosse) had tryouts for our North New Jersey Middle School and High School club teams. It was a huge success with almost 200 kids coming out to compete for a spot on our teams. Although the weather was a little cold and I was severely under dressed, the turnout was great and the effort the kids played with was great to see. The tryout lasted both Saturday and Sunday, but I was only there for the Saturday session, I had a tee time on Sunday (probably the last of the year) that I needed to get back for. After a bad outing of golf (as usual) and a Ravens win, Sunday ended up being a great end to the weekend.
This weekend, I will make the trip back up to New Jersey only this time to the Jersey Shore where we will have our last day of our six week fall lax program. This program was meant to spur some interest from some of the lesser experienced laxers on the shore and prepare them for our Jersey Shore club team tryouts that take place next weekend. After a long day Saturday of driving up and back to NJ, it may be a mellow night Saturday with a blowout on Sunday for the Ravens game. Its been a while since the boys played a home game and after this week, they are back on the road for 3 or 4 straight weeks.
Other then the Trilogy work and school, I have been trying to get myself ready for the indoor season. I recently signed with the Philadelphia Wings and training camp starts soon. I am not going to say that I look forward to the training camp, but I am looking forward to getting back out and playing. With Haloween being next week, I may not check in until the next week, but I will be sure to have some stories for the next blog.
Any good Halloween costumes?? Unitl next time, take care everyone….
