Runners Up

Day 4 of NaBloPoMo 2007

The day started off rather early with myself staying up late to watch the big Arsenal vs. Manchester United match. It was an entertaining game, it finishing 2-2, which overall was a fair result.

At midday was the big Grand Final for our indoor competition. We weren't playing the opposition that i feared that we would be, but we still expected a tough game. It was a tight game as well, it being level 2-2 at the break. I thought we gained the upper hand when I scored to make it 3-2, but some good goal-keeping and good finishing from their team allowed them claw back and take the lead to eventually hold out the match. The 3-6 final score line is a little misleading as we conceded late goals trying to chase the game.

Other than the goal, I had a particularly bad match. I picked up more than a few knocks, and it seemed as though i spent half the game on the bench. One shove into the net left me feeling particularly dizzy (the heat no doubt contributing), and I also have a really corked right thigh.

The loss is disappointing, especially considering how well we played this season, but if you would have asked me at the start of the season if i'd be happy with a 'runners up' mug after being promoted up two divisions, i definitely would've said heck yes.

Back to work tomorrow, and here's hoping some video games will arrive for me...
