Preparation Tuesday

Tuesday, 4 June, 2019

The morning was dedicated to more video review of Saturday's Italian DII Wild Card Playoff game opponent, the Palermo Sharks.

They are now primarily a passing team having called a whopping 46 passes in their final game of the regular season against the Desio Hammers. All they have to do is complete three or four long passes and we'll have our hands full.

The Sharks will be a dangerous opponent again just as they were when we struggled to beat them 28-21 back on March 23rd.

In the afternoon, we did some needed shopping and headed down to the public library to get some new reading materials and a DVD to entertain us in the next few days.

We were surprised to find . . .

. . . a Car Show near the library

But, not just any cars . . .

. . . they were all Ferraris!

They all belonged to members of the
Luxembourg Ferrari Club


This Ferrari's huge engine

While red is the color of choice
for these club members . . .

. . . the Luxembourg Club has a rebel . . .

. . . or two

The Car Show was a pleasant surprise but we were nearing the bewitching hour that signals the start of another Skorpion practice. 

When I arrived at Skorpion Field our
awesome BBQ was being hauled away

Will it be back in time for Saturday night's Palermo Sharks game?

 The 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. practice slot
was now being used by only our
Women's Flag Team

Our U13, U15 and U17 Flag teams have now all finished their 2019 seasons.

Prima Squadra scrimmage

We had a good turn out tonight by a team willing to practice with both focus and intensity.

What more could I ask for from the Skorpions?

On a negative note, we lost one of our starters for our playoff run for an unusual reason. He is being inducted into the Italian Army this coming Saturday.

How rude of the army to not wait until the playoffs are done.

Looking to seeing what color Ferrari you bring back.

The Navy would have been more polite I'm sure.

A red Ferrari to match my eyes.
