Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I managed to get the swelling of my lip down by keeping a cold beer pressed against it for a few hours after the game. I'm not concerned about my face being banged up(some could argue it's an improvement), and I'm not even worried about the bruised ego.(It was #7, Ill remember) What I am concerned about is that I think I have suffered a serious brain injury. Every post I have read this morning makes sense. Even Macguru's. ;)
I had a friend helping me pick out my gear and I kept saying, "Why do my gloves feel so loose? Are you sure these fit me right?"
So he paused, put the gloves on, and said, "Look, they're loose so you can do this."
Then he flicked both arms downward quickly and whizzed two bare-fisted punches past my face before I could blink.
"Oh. I get it now!" :)
We scrimmaged at the end of practice and I actually got off a good pass to a teammate. It was a total fluke, but I was pleased.
:) I'm hooked.
