My mom says the pads you gave me weren't enough.*

Last night we went to a Richmond Raiders Indoor Football game for FHE.  One of the members of our ward at church is on the team and he snagged us all free tickets (and even if they weren't free- they were only $10 - so who's in for next season!?)

Here are some photos - sorry in advance if the picture quality is bad - I've lost my camera (again).  I'm going to put out an APB on it and hopefully it will show up.
They play downtown in the Coliseum.  Our team is blue.

As expected - Nicole (the horse gambling junkie) had no problem jumping right in to the football fan persona.  She was cheering even as our own guy was slammed into the wall and then she yelled out, "You'll be waking up next Saturday!" Or something like that. 

Can I just say that I want one of these - it's a remote controlled blimp that drops give aways on the crowd (light ones that don't hurt - I know, I was hit on the head with a bracelet)...who wouldn't want a mini version of this in their house to bring them snacks and such

In arena football, if the ball is hit into the stadium (which happens quite a bit because the field is a lot smaller than a regular football field) whoever catches it gets to keep it.  There was one guy who caught three, one man who tripped over his girlfriend's legs as he dove for the ball, a small group of children who turned Lord of the Flies for one, and many others.

I mostly got distracted by these guys:

They kind of made me think of this guy:

Near the end of the game we all stood up and were cheering as loudly as we could because the other team had the ball and we wanted to distract them with noise.  In addition to whooping and hollering, I started to yell for Charlie.  I screamed a few times, "You're a good man, Charlie Brown!"

The cheering must have worked because we won!  Actually it was probably some good defense work on the part of #11 not #31.  None of us liked #31 because he was one of those hot heads who thinks he's the star of the show (you know the type).  He threw his arms around and pushed other people a lot when something didn't go right.  At one point #11 and #31 were both around to get an interception - for a second they both ran down the field together, both holding on to the ball and then #31 clearly yanked it out of #11's hands.  He ran down the field and made a touchdown that didn't count.  Good job #31 - way to be a team player.

Anyway - the crowd jumped on to the field afterwards to congratulate the team.

Thus ends my Monday Night Adventure.

CHARLIE BROWN - I scrolled the pictures first and I didn't even need to read the words to get the joke!

Did the dancer team with the shiny silver boots dance?

Ha! I'm glad others can see the resemblance. And yes! The shiny boots were the first thing I noticed! I beat they have to special order those!

My first thought was Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. I was looking more at physicality than shirts.

Jessica Donbrosky said...

That was actually my SECOND thought :) But Charlie Brown seemed less...mean.

Martha said...

That's me. Mean.
