We made the playoffs!!!

So buzzin! Had a sick game against Cambridge Pythons (33-6) ๐Ÿ˜› They played a good game but when we got our wheels on, we were hard to stop. Offence put some great points on the scoreboard and defence as usual were absolutely brutal. I found out that I still have a lot to learn, but I’m loving the applying ‘information processing’ I’m learning at uni, and putting to good practice. I made a silly mistake today though. A push in the back, thinking to naturally try and protect my running back I was leading. I got a good block to help him past the line of scrimmage but then fucked it all up by tackling a safety from behind, it cost us the touchdown too!!! Everyone was cool about it as I’m still learning, I have a feeling it’s not forgotten and I’m gonna be ripped about it for a while. ๐Ÿ™ˆ But lesson bloody learned there! Lmao #FFS๐Ÿ˜‚  

Other than that… I had a few plays, fumbled one but recovered, got some solid blocks and made some yards. Despite the steep learning curve, I don’t think I’m doing that bad. Still running a little too high with a bit of ‘fairy hands’ but I’m working on it. Was nice to be told,  when shaking hands on final whistle “Good running mate, you’re so f**king hard to play against”. I’ll take that!!! Lol Leave a trail of previous hits behind me.  

It was great to have the missus there with the little one again, the lads were awesome with her as always. Imagine huge Defensive Linemen rolling around on the floor humouring her tackles and passes; can’t put a price on that.๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸผJodie brought some cakes she had left from her cake sale yesterday, they seem to have went down well. Well… I didn’t get none so that explains that. 
I remember when I first wanted to play, so excited to play a game I knew nothing about other than what I’ve seen in the movies. Boy was I in for a surprise! Haha The pain is real but I’m absolutely loving this game and playing it with the team we got; the next game is against our rivals Sussex, who are our only loss in our 5-1 season score. We need this win, and from today’s performance… I think we have what it takes to do it.   

But until then… Chilling time before exam tomorrow. ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ™ The balance has been restored.
