And we’ll keep on fighting, till the end …
‘Cause we are the Champions! Last time we were here, the Spirit Pointers were bound for the finals, against the number one team in the league. The final sport was not floor hockey (thankfully!), but in fact bootball; a new and amazing sport whose rules I’ve been through before.
There isn’t much to say about the game itself, except that for a second straight week everyone played their butts off. Perhaps it’s because bootball is our sport, but this time the hard work meant the game was ours to lose. Of all the sports we play in this league, it may be my favourite. Don’t get me wrong, I still wanted to win … bad … but there were no pre-game jitters like last week. As hard as it is to believe about a championship final, it just felt like I was out there having some good old fashioned fun.
In the end, we won 26-16 and finally managed to get the team photos we’d been trying to take all season. After a years worth of playing for basement dwellers, it feels good to be on top.
And with that the winter season is done. If the weather lately is any indication, Summer is on the horizon and that means weeks chalk full of sports. Soccer mostly, both mens’ and co-ed. Throw in some inner tube water polo, and trips to the gym and I’ll be in fantastic shape. Just in time for … jeans and sweater season?
It’s been a great season, and hopefully there will be many, many more to come.
