    Default 1st Game of the 2013 American Football Season

    Yesterday, Saturday April 6th, saw the opening of the college level, American-style football season. Ave Maria College in San Marcos hosted the event. I'm a fan of the Mad Dawgs, so Roger and I stayed for the first game only, which the Dawgs won 8 to zip. Here are some pix I got with a new toy from a most awesome friend!!! (You know who you are! )




    Denied!




    Fans of the San Marcos Knights. We parked over here for shade and better views for my camera, NOT because I am a fan. Some of the snottiest folks I've met in Nicaragua. Check out the jerk shooting a "bird" at the camera; lots of "f*ck" this and "f*ck" that whenever the players talked. Makes one wonder just what that high-priced education is all about???


    Coach Adolfo and the team after a great win!


    Coach and the fellas gave me an official team jersey...think I'm gonna get "La Gringa" personalized on the back!

    Next game is Saturday, April 13th, at Zacarias Guerra behind Centro Commercial. I'll get back to y'all with starting times.

    Good going Melissa!

    How big are these guys?

    I seem to count 3 different players with number 72 jerseys. Is this correct a just a scheme to confuse the opposition?
    Life's different here ... It's a whole 'nother pace.

    I'd say they are between high school and college size. Got some little fellas and some that are a head taller than the rest of the team. Hadn't noticed the numbers until I looked back at that pick, pretty funny...must just be an illusion...yet again, down here, who knows!

    For an example of size, Tom, guy on the left with the helmet in hand (Alessandro) is maybe an inch taller or so than me. That puts him at 5'9, maybe 5'10. You can see then, the size of the fella to his left...

    Alway's heard though... It ain't the size of the Dog... But the size of the Bite that is in the dog... Is that an Irish Sayin"?

    BTW all them street bricks? What they gone do pave the playing field with them... paint it green and call it "Nicaturf"?
    To be called a "Has Been" I must surmise, is much Greater than to be called a "Nevah Been"... JW...
