Finally, a GREAT Nights Sleep and a Slow Day

Friday, 29 April, 2016:

After a truly great nights sleep, ten hours worth to be exact, I believe that I am finally over any lingering jet lag issues as of the moment.

I opted to do some minor exploring in Upplands Väsby during the afternoon.

The view from my
Ryttargatan bus stop

 Upplands Väsby Sports Center

It is both large and comprehensive including an ice rink, basketball courts, an indoor pool and a track/soccer field.

 The pool inside is MASSIVE!

 Track/Soccer Field

Rustic, picturesque, woodsy . . . you pick the adjective.

I always thought it was Wang Chun

We have got to get one of these
installed for the grandkids!

Outdoor Disco Ball . . .
Upplands Väsby ROCKS!!!

I finally gave in today . . .

. . . FIKA TIME!!!

It was as good as I remembered.

The Hub Building for many of
Upplands Väsby activities

It is hard to see through the tree on the left but the time/temperature dial read 19°C which is a balmy 66°F!

Hey, check out that big window in the middle of the building.

No expectation of
privacy in public places

Fortunately, nothing was akimbo.

In the evening, Warriors' Head Coach Thomas Andersson took me out to dinner. We had a good two hour meeting to go over the Wäsby playbook and discuss all things American football related to our team's success.

I am getting more excited by this project every day!

The next two days will be busy with a U15 team camp that will include teams from Sollentuna and Arlanda as well.

On Saturday we will have a full day of American football. Our U15s will go through a combination of individual techniques periods, classroom sessions, 7-on-7/inside run, team time for all three phases of the game and installation of new plays. We will start at 10:00 a.m and finish at 9:00 p.m.

On Sunday, the U15s will work out from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. with the highlight of the day being scrimmages between the three clubs.

Two days, 19 hours with the U15s . . .
Is this American football heaven? No, it's just Sweden.
