In the second full week of prep sports a slow moving spinner has to come out of the gulf and hose down all mid-week sporting events.
It really caught me off guard in trying to stay on top of scheduling eight sports at each of two schools, only to realize the beginnings of my scheduling had been drowned before I finished my plans for week 12.
What great timing, though. The first week of college football and some of the best non-conference matchups in the high school realm are at the doorstep and WHAMMY – three inches of rain and talk of two-three more days of isolated storms are the rumor in the weather room.
Sure it was weird for me to have to rewrite my week's plans before they got started, but think about the coaches (who many forget are 99 percent teacher as well) and how fun it must be for them to start off week one and early week two rescheduling events already.
It's frustrating. It's not as easy as "throw it on the bye week." Sometimes these games are skipped completely, and that's where I lose big-time. I suppose the moral of the story is: If it's raining a whole bunch send Aaron all the submitted info in the world, because the uglier the weather, the better the chance he will use it, and sooner than later as well.
