First Practice in Pads

Today was our first practice in pads and we greeted 49 Elephants to the manicured practice field that is the pride of the Elephant's Park.

Three Liters of
Barbagallo Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Every week someone gives me a delicious food item to take home after the Saturday practice.  Last week the Palermo boys gave me about a 5 kilo bag of a delicious typical Sicilian food called panelle.  This week Gregorio presented me with this new treasure.

What does today's practice have to do with three liters of Gregorio's family olive oil?  Simple, both went down smoothly!

We had a VERY positive practice with several of our new players showing that they can definitely contribute to our 2009 success.  The coaching staff was also very pleased with the effort put forth by our rookies in their debuts.

We have a long way and a lot of hard work to put in before we are ready to play a game but today's practice was a good first step in the right direction.

I was so excited that I forgot to take pictures, that's how good it was today.
