C-c-c-c-c-c-not warm

[Doug, Dusty, me] vs [Bill, Mark, Pete] with Bob floating, as I recall.

If we'd played at 6am, it would've been -9C. According to EnvCan, 1:00pm started at -22C and windy, then got colder. I had 6 torso layers and was still a tad chilly when I stopped running (long-sleeved undershirt, 2 long-sleeved shirts, a t-shirt, a sweatshirt, and a jersey). Also, exposed hands weren't happy hands. Crap, I just now remembered my emergency sweater that I keep in the Jeep for just such an occasion - how annoying.

Still, the play wasn't as bad as a bunch of uber-bundled crackers on a windy field with drifting snow would have you believe. Pete dived and caught a tipped ball (by me), but I believe that his 2008 string of being involved on the last TD is no more. That is, unless his was the blown coverage. I don't know, it was too cold.

We tried to pee on snow effigies to those not there, but the temperature made it more like yellow ice crystals hitting concrete. Kind of like how that coloured stucco thing works.

Dusty Rides Bob's Ass; Mike Films

Sunny, windlessish, somewhere in the -18C vicinity. Great day for football.
[Bob, Dusty, Mark] vs [Doug, Paul, Pete]
Mike injured, but filming.

For some reason, Dusty was channelling an abuser or two from Bouche's past; or maybe some deep-seated psychological thingy that Dusty keeps pushing back down. Quite amusing from what I remember - and some of it may even have been deserved. Of course, I was being supportive of him by saying that he was the only team player. Bob's an army of one. Bob had his Shield of Not Caring up today though, and stayed relatively relaxed - disallowing Dusty penetration of his psyche.

Pete continued his 2008 streak of being positively involved with the last TD; throwing last week and catching this week (blown zone by Bob; Dusty disgusted).

Lots of tipped balls and near picks today.

Bob, at Honest Mur's, asked a question to Mark about the oilsands' steam injection technique that caught everyone off-guard. WTF? No Southpark references and only one Family Guy reference. Weird day.

First glance at Mike's pics...lots of plays got lost because they went on for too long and the camera ran out of memory. Plus, people got lost behind other players - and not just behind Dusty either. Dougie got ripped off on his diving catch on the 10 yard line (SE) because he was behind me and a couple of others. Did get another crazy spinning-dive-tackle in though.

We made beautiful snow-homages to Bill, Blair, Jeff, and Ryan -- then peed on them.
