About 2 weeks ago we played a game against the Berlin Adler. At the time they were the 2nd ranked team in the GFL (German Football League). Also at the time we were the worst team in the AFL (Austrian Football League)
The game we played last week was called the toilet bowl. It was between us (last place) and a team from Carinthia (2nd to last place). Their season was pretty much over after they played us 2 weeks before that. They wanted to win that game and they were happy. So when they came out to our place you could tell some of them didn't really care what happened in that game. They traveled with 22 players for the game. Four of the 22 were on the Juniors team and never played on the mens squad before. With all that said, they were still leading for a good part of the game and then somehow we pulled a win out of our ass. Our only win in league play. As long as we won 1 game we were happy
Even though our team was horrible this year record wise, this will be an experience I will never forget. I have had the opportunity to meet some great people from all over Europe and hopefully some people that I will keep in touch with in the future. From our players to players and coaches from the other teams, to the fans that came out and supported us it has been amazing. I wish you guys could have been out here to experience this with me. I hope I have the chance to do this somewhere else next year. We will see. So 3 weeks until our game, hopefully we get this win. It's on live tv nationwide so our guys should be ready, if they show up to damn practice more than once every 2 weeks. I plan on taking a lot more pictures of my trip this week and of our game against Graz.
Sorry I haven't written much lately. We have just been practicing and playing games. It is a very small part of Austria with not much to do. We have the Cineplexx which has about 6 bars and a couple of restaurants and of course a movie theater so that is the place to hangout at night. I am going to try to squeeze in a lot of traveling this next month so hopefully I have something good to write about. I gotta run, hope everyone is doing well and I will probably see you guys real soon.
