We fought hard, and gave our all, but in the end it wasn’t enough. The kids from the Boys and Girls Club were a worthy opponent, and we were up to the challenge. I believe if we had more time, we would be victorious.
It was nice to hear people cheer for Dinger. I don’t think Dinger gets enough love. The whole state LOVES Rocky, and for good reason, and I don’t think I’ve ever been in another venue and not get love from the fans, but Dinger usually is greeted with crickets, or even sometimes some boos. But Sunday when he was announced, the stands exploded. Finally! Of course all of us here are wishing the Rockies and Dinger good luck.
Now, the game. I don’t think people realize how slippery these little kids can be. Twice I had the ball carrier all but wrapped up and just like that, he’s gone. I don’t know if they grease ‘em down or what, but there is a clear advantage to being small. They can change direction so quick and are hard to grab onto. But on our end, there’s an advantage to being big. First of all, it takes about half a dozen of them to bring us down. Second, they are short and easy to hurdle.
