At least it did, literally, as practice was wrapping up yesterday. First, it began to drizzle. Two seconds later it was pouring.
"Eh, hurry up and take kea da equipment! You got two minutes or you goin' run 50 hills!"
A look of panic glared back at me but as the players got wet I just began to laugh as I saw them standing there soaked to their birthday suits. When it comes to rain, isn't it strange that your mind turns into a fight or flight mode? You either going to run for cover or succomb to nature. Funny thing rain, we all like it and hate it at the same time yeah?
Wassap Wit Dat?
The players actually loosened up when the rain came, laughing and getting soaked running around in slop (parents were real happy ) which got me thinking about da hana-batta days.
One time my friends and I went mountain biking - we just da weekend warrior types go once in a blue moon - but my not so coordinated friend decides he wanted to try and go up a manini two foot bank in the slop. Let's just say he didn't need to go to a spa for a mud bath, he got one free. My friends and I never let him forget it...and that was a little over ten years ago!
We nevah kea that it was muddy or rainy, we just let loose. For some reason, it was like that too for the players yesterday. Sometimes the rain does bring out the best - or the beast - depends how you feeling eh?
So what's your rainy day story? Everybody has got to have at least one! Since everybody likes food too, what's your favorite rainy day grinds?
Anybody do the mud slide? No, not da drink. I don't know where it is but I've always seen pictures of people riding ti leaves all nasty and muddy...but always with a smile on their face.
Anyone run around in the rain lately...and enjoy it?
