Actually we've found out that 4 on 4 or 5 on 5 is perfect.

I had the best time playing with small numbers.

My cousin (the guy you met last weekend's wife) is on her death bed and we're basically looking at any day now so I don't know how that's gonna work out.

Sorry to hear it. That's horrible. I've changed it. Did you contact the rest of your group?

Many have tried. Few have succeeded. Just wait until you see some of our regulars this week. You'll no longer be the quickest.

I can always try :) Remember, I was only going on 3 hours of sleep last week, too :)

Phil, I am golden, and it looks like 3 friends (Tyler, Michael, Elijah) for sure, with 3 more friends as maybe's...

I have been off 2 weeks of playing sports trying to get my knee and groins back to where they dont hurt as much... Volleyball tonight was great... so I feel good about football on Sat...

Its on...

Looks like we have a good group. I'm ready to go. Heck. I may want to play Sunday. It's not like watching the Chiefs offers any amount of entertainment.

We should try to find a turf field just in case it's a little muddy - that way we can still play. I wonder if they'll allow pickup games on any of the turf fields in the area.

I'm surprised any of them allow you to use their fields. It looks like 100% liability on their part in case of injury.

We play on turf for my other games. It is no different them playing on the dirt or someone hurting themselves that runs around their track.

I'm pretty sure Rockhurts has a turf field

I'd think they would be 100% liable for anyone getting hurt on their property, turf, dirt or track. They must have good insurance. Or they don't know it is going on. The local HS here keeps their field locked up.

I think your forecast has changed a bit. It is only going to be 35 degrees.

Phobia
12-06-2007, 10:37 AM
Yeah - our cutoff is 40. If it's not at least 40 by gametime consider this event cancelled.

WTF? And you call soccer players pussies.

Phobia
12-06-2007, 11:12 AM
I'll play in anything. It's Wutamess who cries about the cold. Heh.

Plus, if it's a wet cold - can you imagine? It's one thing kicking a soccer ball. It's entirely another catching a frozen football. At least they warm them for the NFL games. I'm guessing we won't have that luxury saturday.

Hey, I'll play if we have players. Call in by noon Saturday and we'll make a gameday decision. 816-665-1208

Frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. Let's play, cold be damned.

I agree cold be damned. If it get too bad we can set each other on fire!

I'd play in anything. I'd prefer not to play because I'm thinking we'd get a lot of last minute no shows. I'm game if I'm able to (cousin situation).

I've played in a snowball softball tourney last year when the high was in the teens & a routing fly ball lands in the middle of the outfield it bounces over the fences 30 yards away.

Phobia

I've gotten email from RJ saying he's in no matter how cold it is, too. So we'll have players there. I just don't want to play in cold slop.

Dave Lane
12-06-2007, 06:00 PM
The slop is the biggest issue. Cold and snow be damned.

I may not have a way to get there. I absolutely cannot drive my car in the snow (like, can't get out of the driveway can't drive it) and my wife will have the SUV on Saturday so she can get out and do Christmas shopping.

We'll see.

The roads will be fine by then. Jeesh.

My weather thing is showing snow all the time between now and tomorrow night. It's not the roads I'm concerned about as much as actually getting in and out of my driveway.

These are my tires (though, not my car):

They don't do snow.

Bad News boys... weather is supposed to be really bad... Ice Storm is coming.

Temps between 24-32 and slick conditions makes me a no go... my friends were out before me, but I thought I would still go... but with the conditiond getting worse, it will not be worth it... sorry... I am not one to commit and not show... but these circumstances dictate it...

Silock
12-07-2007, 04:47 PM
Yeah, I see ice storms predicted for tonight, too.

That sucks :(
