Ran & Football :)

OK, so it's Monsoon right now... although it's supposed to be over... We, and another couple in our city planned the day before to go to the coffee shop on the other side of town (ours burned down)... the cool thing about this coffee shop is that it has a field of grass behind it... now, you may not think that is super awesome, but when you live in "the plains"... and it's super dry most of the time... grass is a rare commodity. So we planned on bringing frisbees, a football and all sorts of other toys... this area also had some swings.. So needless to say, we were excited about going the next day...

Well, we woke up the next moring and it was POURING RAIN!!! We had been really looking forward to this... (and the other couple has a little girl that was really excited)...so we decided to go anyway to at least have some coffee...

So what do you do when it's raining and a little girl is really excited about playing on the playground?? You grab an umbrella :)

Well, Adam & Scott started to throw the football back and forth... there were some guys inside that were drinking coffee that were interested to know what the boys were doing outside in the rain... well, the 3 guys decided they wanted to check it out... so they rolled up their pant-legs and walked out in the rain... Well, before long, Adam had taught them how to play American football, and they had a big game going...
As you can see.. they had a BLAST!!
They were soaked!!! Because of the rain, it ended up being even more fun than it would have been... we had a BLAST!

Ends up, the guy in the white shirt below, was ranked top 10 in golf in asia... they were playing football with a celebrity :) Everyone had fun :) (Even the guy in the middle of the pic below with the torn shirt... he just wouldn't smile for the picture :))
It seemed fitting that we played on Saturday...the beginning of football season in America - what a great begining of football season :)
GO SEMINOLES!

Playing in the rain is awesome! Good thing Adam could teach them American football. If it were up to me I would definitely "drop the ball"! Ha ha...
