Carolina Cardinals Professional Women's Football
The Carolina Cardinals Professional women's football has hit the Triad and I can't tell you how happy I am because of this. Yes, for those that know me, this is probably a shock, how could I of all people be excited about a ball sport? Ball sports are by their very nature the very definition of all that I stand against (except the Idiot Monkey part)! Yet here I am doing my small part to get the word out about the New Cool, in the Greensboro area.
It is because, I happened to be married to a member of the team. People often think I am joking when I say that one of Sara's major draws for me is the fact that she can get my back in a bar fight. My dating history short and spotted though it is had more women interested in putting a dagger in my back in a bar fight. A rare few would have made sure that I wasn't in the bar to start with, but those relationships had other interesting problems. Sara was the first woman I ever dated whom I could trust to get my back in a bad physical situation. I admit also, it was a rocky start, Sara didn't like it one bit that I could defeat her arm wrestling, but she got over it, and we're both better for it. The joke of the original statement is of course that I am seldom seen in bars, and when I am, have never been involved in a fight.
So for those (like me) keeping score, Sara's got an undergrad degree in theater education, a masters degree in film and video production with an emphasis on screenwriting. She is a university project manager whose hobbies include, participating in the 48 Hour Film Project, video games, guitar, and now pro football. Dr. Banzai himself would gladly have her intern at the institute...assuming of course she can discover the key to the mysterious 8th day of the week, giving her time to participate.
Now, I suppose she ought to have some sort of cool nickname fitting her new second career. So far the two I have thought of that I like the best are "Crazy Train", and "Professor Pain". Crazy Train will run you down and whilstle while doing it. Professor Pain's battle cry could be "One Thousand Years of Pain!!!!!" If anyone else has an idea I would love to hear it.
For those ladies interested in giving full contact football a try, there is a tryout scheduled for:
February 18, 2006
Oka . T Hester Park
3615 Deutzla Street
Greensboro, NC 27407
There is a form to fill out and here it is.
The Schedule isn't carved in stone yet, but once it is I will let you know. Those readers from out of State might be in luck as some of the away games are in Atlanta, Boston, and places farther north.
