Otto's cake

The week leading up to our Kickoff weekend was very wet but the weather cleared up for both Saturday and Sunday, allowing us great weather to eat good food with good friends.

While we were unable to gather footage of the best dunking ever, what you missed was Jeff performing an EPIC high speed tackle/dunking of Otto. The energy of impact sent Otto flying ten feet back. Leon and Wynne brought him a cute little birthday cake to celebrate his dunking or birthday, whichever is more important.

We even had some creative methods of emptying the last of the whipped cream cans.

Potluck heaven

I officially joined LARD shortly before the 2011 season opener. It can be overwhelming when you suddenly meet a bunch of new faces at the same time, but the team did a very good and friendly job of making me feel welcome. On the day of the season kick-off/potluck, I met even more LARDerners (is that right?) and it was a blast meeting them and eating the awesome potluck food. People are friendly, interesting and did I mention they can really cook and bake? Pulled pork, pies, bacon wraps, stews, cookies, oh how you tempt me so. So not only are these people friendly human beings, hardcore competitors and dedicated teammates, they can also whip up a mean pie. It was a great practice to start off the season with only more intense practices coming up! Can’t wait! Walking without a limp is overrated anyways. Things will only get better from here and I can’t wait until the season gets into full swing. The journey has only begun and I’m glad that I am a part of it.
