I’m still here

Sorry for the lack of posts as of late.  It’s hard to write when you’re not feeling good.

I have, however, been a little busy over the weekend.

2008 AF2 Awards Ceremony

We went to the AF2 Arena Cup Awards Ceremony on Sunday!!

It was all kinds of fun, and we got a chance to see all the people who had won awards for the 2008 AF2 year!

Quite possibly, the best award went to Nick Gatto, the kicker and team captain for the Texas Copperheads.  He won the SFC USA Kicker of the Year.  What was amazing about Nick was that he was born missing the lower half of his right arm.

That didn’t seem to stop him at all though, and they showed footage of him on the field.  Man… that guy can seriously kick a damn ball!

Of course, Sergio Gilliam of our home town Spokane Shock won the Spalding Rookie of the Year award.  Rumor has it that he’s in contract talks to move on to the NFL for next year.  Man… we’ll miss him.. he’s the interception king!

Then… on Monday… we went to the AF2 Arena Cup!

Oh man… what a game!!  While the Spokane Shock didn’t win, it was tied at the end of the game and went into overtime with instant death.  The Vipers finally won it by one point with a final score of 55 – 56.

It was also incredibly loud in the arena!  The anouncer stated that the db level was 109.6 in there.  Damn… that’s concert loud!!

We came home a little dejected because our team lost, and very, very horse (from screaming).  Even though our team lost, it was still a great time!
