That's being quite positive. I know there were times at the end of last season it was anything but PAIN free for me ....

Yes she knows. And unfortunately the answer is no ...

But don't feel too sorry for her... she's going on a Bahamas cruise in November to make up for it ...

My wife is going, she took Football 101 and loved it. I think it would be great to do one for men as well, I'd go.

I hope I will be healed enough to go and watch. :cr:
I thought about bumping it until after 202, but then I will be hooped for the start of the season.
Oh well, on a positive note, at least I'll be pain free for the games this year! :thup:
Noooooooooo!!!! :bawl: :bawl: :shock:

On one hand, I'm glad you will be pain-free, on the other hand, I'm seriously bummed that you won't be there! I hope that I'm not the only one there who has never played the game before! :cr:

Not sure about tailgating, but definitely watching...as coach, I do have to scout you know.

Great job Solar Max! Excellent pics as always. Sure wish I could have crashed that party. :wink:

It's nice to experience it vicariously though, thanks to the 'lens' of the camera.

What was the turnout like? It seems like there were quite a few ladies enrolled. Was it more or less than other years?

This was the first time 'round for 202 we were told. Jen said that she was quite surprised at the turnout.

Because we are limited by Ferries, and arrived first, I asked her where we could set up. She pointed to a nice spot on the grass, then tore inside the building saying "They're TAILGATING our Event! TAILGAITING IT!!"

Sorry if that embarressed you Jen, but it made my day.

Looks like everyone had a good time! Great pics, Solar!


Damn, there are sure some hot boys on our team! *fewf*

I was on the skytrain at 2:30 today and as it went past there, i felt saddened. If it had been earlier and i had seen you guys there, i would have cried lol
