What up everyone?  I guess it's been awhile since I have written anything.  Been a little busy with the season and traveling a little bit.  Not as much as I would like to though.  This has been the craziest season I have ever been involved with.  First off it is official we are the worst team in the AFL (Austrian Football League).  It came down to us and this team from Carinthia and they got us pretty good.  It didn't help that we were missing 6 of our guys but I am not sure how much that would have mattered.  We play them again though but they will end up with a better league record.  The crazy thing is we are still in the EFAF Cup which is a European Championship.  Somehow we made it to the Semi-finals in that.  We play tomorrow evening against the Berlin Adler which is a pretty good team, so wish us luck.  If we win there is a Huge party at the stadium and if we lose then there is just a big party at the stadium.  The people really don't care whether we win or lose because 95% of them have no idea what the hell is going on out there.  I would say more than half of them come there just to drink.  The rest are family and friends who came to watch a little and drink a lot.  We usually hand out free tickets for the games but since this is a semifinal game the pres didn't want to hand out any free tickets so that  means there will be about 20 people at the game in the first half.  After that they let everyone in for free.  We have sold a total of 100 tickets this season.  Everyone else got in for free.
Since I wrote the last time we have gone through some changes on our team.  Our Running Back got hurt so they sent him home.  One of our coaches hates management so he left.  Our Middle Linebacker tore his biceps tendon so he went home.  Our Running back is healthy now so they brought him back this week.  Two of our import players can't play this week because we brought them in after the start of EFAF so we can't use them.  One guy got beat up after our last home game so he is out for awhile.  Other than that everything is pretty good.  We all just kind of sit back and laugh at the whole situation.  Luckily the imports are all good guys who work hard. 
We have 2 games left, 3 if we win tomorrow and then it's over.   I have plans to travel a little bit before coming home.  I would like to go to Germany but I don't want to pee sitting down.  Long story, I told some of you already but I won't go into it now.  Dana Dane and Marjo are going to be in Paris for a couple of weeks so I am going to ruin that trip by crashing with them for a little while.  Be ready Frenchies I'm coming to your barrio.  It would be nice if we could win these last 2 hopefully 3 games and end on a high note.  I know why a lot of coaches are drunks though.  This losing crap wears you down.  Not much else going on.  It's been pretty slow the last month or so.  I spent some time in Vienna, beautiful city.  We have plans to go to Prague once the season is over.  That could be ugly.  We are probably going with some of the guys from a team that beat the crap out of us a few weeks ago.  The same guys that went to Budapest with us.  I want to hit up Rome but money is tight and these cheap weekend trips aren't all that cheap.  Who's up for Mr. Tikis when I get home?  Gotta get moving we have a team dinner tonight so I don't want to be too late.  I hope everyone is doing well.  Drop me a line, would love to hear from you guys.  Talk to you soon.
