New Year Party

Well, I survived the bash that was the New Year Party for the football team. Between throwing guys around, doing speed pushups with our rookies, and drinking beer, I would say it was a successful night.

It has finally come to the end of the season with one more item to be performed. Photography of the championship. Yours truly will be on the scene next Sunday shooting and producing the DVD as usual. And while I am not exactly thrilled about not being there to play, it was a fun season and it is nice to finally play with a team that just wanted to play football.

Happy New Year 2008

Well, the time for the first post of 2008 has come. Not a lot happening right now except for the team's new years party. After a season in which we finished 3rd in our block, we did have a good end of season with the special games. Winning the final three games I played in Japan felt pretty good as well.

As I look forward to the 2008 season playing minor league football in the North American Football League (NAFL), I have begun to train. It will be quite different going against guys who are bigger, stronger and a lot faster than most of the ones here in Japan. My current plans are to play with the King Country Jaguars (, a team which has won the Northwest Football League (NWFL) the last three years and finished in the quarterfinals of the NAFL championships this year.

I am currently training every day here in Japan, running, lifting and stretching, preparing for what will be my last season. After a career spanning 20 years and 7 teams, I am looking forward to this last season. Look here for more posts in the coming months as I start upon this new adventure.
