What up?  Still in Austria and having a great time.  I wanted to do this earlier but I didn't have much time and I didn't really know how long I would be here.  I am still here and it looks like I might make it to the end of the season.  Everything is going great, we are in a small town called Hohenems in the western part of Austria.  There are about 15,000 people here and I think I met them all the first weekend we were in town.  We are right along the Swiss Alps which also is the background to our football field.

Our team name is the Cineplex Blue Devils.  The team consists of players from different parts of Europe, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Holland and 6 players from the US.  There are 2 other coaches besides myself.  I am coaching receivers and backs, Francisco is our D-Coordinator and Joe is our O-Coordinator.  The other 2 coaches are also from the US but luckily Joe speaks the language so we can communicate with the players that don't speak english.  We have a youth team also which is divided into 4 different teams based on age.  There season doesn't start until October but they still practice year around.  They are pretty good football players also.  Our men's team is off to a slow start.  We are 0-2 right now.  We played the #1 and #3 teams in Europe and lost some close games.  I will update the craziness of some of these games when I get a chance.

We have had a lot of free time lately which has aloud me to travel a little bit.  We have been to Germany, Italy and Hungary so far with future trips planned to Prague, Greece and Poland.  We play in Madrid on the 28th but that one is paid for by the team.  If you are in Madrid on the 28th and want to check us out please stop by. 

I will try to catch you guys up as soon as possible.  There are a lot of crazy stories and some good pictures.  You can send me a message on here or you can just email me.  Hope everyone is doing well.  I wonder how many people actually read to here.  Anyways I will talk to you soon.  Take care.  Cheers!
