Frisbee Tip - October

Well, the end is almost here!  Up in Illinois, the end is today!  Down here though, our end is next week.

So with that in mind, I'll give you a tip now instead of later like I normally do.  :)

Don't throw the Frisbee from an unusual stance!  :)

This one is almost a no-brainer...  But I've found myself breaking this one a lot because I think I have a good shot that I could miss.

This scenario happens whenever someone catches the Frisbee on a dive, or if they trip, or just trying to stop running!  In GA, I've probably thrown about 4 passes from my knees - 1 was blocked, 2 were thrown into the ground, and only 1 made it where I wanted it to go.  Usually it pays off to take the extra time to get up off the ground and stand up to make a throw.  Unless you only have 3 seconds left on the clock...

But I've even broken this rule when I'm not on the ground!  *Explanation coming up* One time we played when it was wet and slippery out...  And I caught the Frisbee on a short throw as I was running across the field, so far so good, but then I saw someone open downfield and decided to take my shot - before setting myself into a stable position!  Well, I threw the Frisbee...  And I didn't even get to see where it went!  The force of the bomb had thrown me to the ground - something that the rain had something to do with - and consequently into a puddle!  :)  I was uncomfortable all the way to the end of the game, plus something could very well have happened to me - Like a twisted ankle or whiplash from hitting the ground.

So there you have it...  Make sure you're in a good position to throw the Frisbee before you do throw it!  And whatever you do - DON'T HURT YOURSELF!

Me, a COW?!

Well now,  I got up, showered, and went to work today at 6:30 am and when I got there I rode with Mrs. Linn over to an elementary school and then got into the "Cow Costume" and walked around!  :)  I think a lot of kids had fun!  You wouldn't believe how many hugs I got today from all of the kids!  I gave out a ton of high-fives and waved at everyone.  I also was in a little 1 minute commercial/propaganda/I-can't-find-the-right-word that was played through the the school's video system for "Spirit Night" at the school on Saturday!  :)

I don't know how many of you have been in costumes before, but it gets really hot inside the costume!  In about 20 minutes of walking around inside an air-conditioned building, I could feel the sweat just rolling down me!  It was stuffy inside that costume!  :)

But all-in-all, it was a fun adventure and experience...  Plus you get payed "Cow Pay" which is a lot more than normal pay.  :D

Just a quick update,

Tag... #1

So...  I just got "Tagged" by Mrs. Soto!  :)  I guess that if you own a Blog, you'll get tagged at least once sometime while you're Blogging, right?  :)

So...  Here are the Qs -

Do you have any special Christmas goodies that you like to make every year?
Not really...  The only thing I can think of that I make at least once a year (Around this time of the year) are my White Chocolate Chip Chocolate Cookies!  :)

Do you send Christmas cards? Photo? Letter?
Man, I'm too young for that!  I think my family has done 1...  Maybe 2 Christmas cards with photos.

Do you have a favorite Christmas or birthday gift that you received as a child?
I once got a Football uniform from my Grandparents for one of my "Special Days"!  It was complete with cleats, helmet (with a T on it), pants, shirt, and shoulder pads!  :)  That was fun playing with my Grandpa and dad in the backyard.

What was your favorite subject in school? Is it your favorite to teach?
Ummm...  I always liked P.E.  :D  And yes, I love giving people tips on how to do things (Especially in Frisbee).

Are you a morning person or a night person?
Well now, I think I have more late nights than early mornings!  But I do have an alarm clock that wakes me up if I have to get up early.  But seriously....  If I could, I would be more of an early-bird person than I am right now.

What is one thing you wish you had more time to do?
Do anything outdoors!  Frisbee, Flag Football, mow, play catch, plus I'd like to start reading more often.

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Definitely Chocolate!  But really...  I get milkshakes at Chick-fil-A!  If you want a good idea (For more money), try a chocolate shake with strawberry or cookies and cream topping in it!  :)

Do you make your bed every day? 
No.  :)  I sleep on a cot anyway.

So I think the idea is to keep the tags running through Blogger...  Maybe...  ?  Well, anyways, I guess I'll tag Allison, Allison, and Micah to keep it going.

Wishing I could play catch with a Football right now,

The End is Near!

Wow!  The regular Friday Frisbee season is coming to a close here in the next few weeks!

As you probably know, the party for the end of Frisbee is going to be on the 29th of October.  It'll be a really fun day!  We already have 21 people who've RSVPed!  So you should hurry up and RSVP by the 26th, or get one of your family members to!  :)

As for Frisbee news...  I bought some GLOW-STICKS at the $ store.  :)  Hopefully that will raise people's awareness of their surroundings when we play in the dark.  But yep...  We can use those if it gets too dark out.  (Which it probably will :)

As for other news...  We probably won't have to worry about the GRASS being too tall, seeing as this is the time when the grass stops growing.  :)  And then there's the COLD weather!  Hopefully it won't be too bad here in the next couple of weeks...  Over at it says that it'll be 83* for next Friday.  Not too bad!

And if it does get cooler on us, (...Frisbee tip coming up...) you can put on long-sleeved T-shirts!  I say that because sweaters and sweatshirts are generally too heavy and they always make you too hot.  I wear long-sleeved T-shirts when it gets cold out because they keep you warmer from the wind/cold/rain - plus they are lightweight and you can wear them under a regular T-shirt.  (Plus they look cool when you wear them like that!  ;)

So.  I'd love to see you at Frisbee...  Especially the last one!
