Class came very early this morning but I'm glad i got to Skype with Nicole last night :)
I had 9 am Marine Benthos where we talked about sediment and stuff like that... Alot of which I learned from Tim in Coral Reef Systems. Then a 10-12 shelf seas class. More math but i feel like i understand the stuff today better.
After class i headed home and then to try and find frisbee practice for the second time... this time i had the president's phone number and made it successfully! Practice was mediocre based on my performance, but we were inside in a gym... Many of the players that were there today were Freshers (Freshman) and had only been playing for one semester. Still i would say that Love Tap is much much more skilled than what i saw today. I talked to another american, who is on there "first team", for a good bit of the practice. He was impressed when i said i played for Penn State so good work everyone on giving the team a good rep!
They think I'm good enough to walk on to the first team! From what they've seen so far... hope i don't disappoint... lol
We started out with a breakmark drill where i first noticed the terribleness of peoples throws, defense and catching... i feel like its not my place to tell the kids to catch with two hands since it was my first day... We then transitioned to a sort of scrimmage where we were practicing a 5 man (indoor) zone. It was a goofy kind of zone... i thought... They had NO offense. It was frustrating. When someone goes zone on us (psu) we have a set sort of zone break offense... No such thing here... at least for these freshers pre tourney practice. The have a sort of rookie tournament just for fun, this weekend. It's nearby but not really within walking distance so i probably will skip this one. I might be going to a tournament in the coming weeks... depends if i make first team or not...
After most of the practices most of the team goes out to the pub and chills. Whether it be a nice pint, a soda or a nice glass of water its something cool that everyone can do together. O and we went to the on campus pub lol. I forgot to mention that we have a pub right inside the student union at the highfield campus.
Thats all for now,
