Today was a long, stay at home day in La Hacienda as I had been notified by Spain's Correo that the last of our eight boxes of donated, used American football gear had arrived at Murcia's Main Post Office on Saturday morning at 7:45 a.m.

Since it didn't come on Saturday, it could arrive anytime today. Thus I stayed at home all day waiting for the postman to ring my doorbell with a box of goodies.

Fortunately, I had plenty to do as I needed to breakdown yesterday's Barcelona Búfals game video.

Good beverage any day
of the week

The video confirmed that 1. we've improved a lot and 2. we have a lot more improving to do!

I again opted to give our Senior team the Monday practice after a Sunday game off partly because I knew that they would need more recovery time after yesterday's physical game played on the rock hard surface of our home field and partly because our next game was still three weeks away.

The Juniors would still practice from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. as they have another game this Saturday against the Cehegin Wolves. We had a great turnout for this workout.

A bit high but not too bad

The box I waited for all day had still not arrived at 6:00 p.m. when Roberto Durán picked me up for the Junior practice.

I got an e-mail from the U.S. Postal Service stating that the Spanish Correos had tried to deliver the box but that nobody was home to receive it at 8:35 p.m. when the postman rang my doorbell.

Of course, we were still at practice at that time. Sta at home day again tomorrow to wait yet again.

More days . . .

So what time do Spanish postal workers start their deliveries? 7 p.m.?

George,checking the standings, if you find a way to grab that second place in that 3 teams battle with Bilbao and Barcelona, does it mean you'd play a playoff game vs the number 1 team of the other division (probably Barbera up in the "valles") ?
