The Big Match

Don't be fooled, so she's tiny yeah, and sure okay - she need spec's, but I'm telling ya', the girl is deadly!





Well, at least we weren't totally annihilated - 8-5 was a decent enough result all things considered. I mean, we were at a huge disadvantage from the get go, aside from the fact these little darlings are forced to do a cross-country run every week, little 'un's also don't smoke (or drink), do they? And it wasn't my bright idea to be wing attack, either. Have you any idea how much running that position holds? Now, goal attack, there you're talking, dead-eye Dick I am on the hoop. A squandered talent I was today. Hmph. And as for accusing me of that "foul".. what was all that about? Ref was blatantly biased. Obviously. Sheesh, just look!


No, I am not displaying a limp wrist here, I have just passed the ball - see the ref with the whistle in her mouth? Where was the foul? Well? Huh? All I can say is that it's a good thing I don't take these things that seriously, that's all. Naturally, of course I was gonna' let them win, anyways (fingers crossed behind my back).

Things I get myself roped into. Mutter, mutter..

What's this game called? Looks like basketball, but no backboard. Is that you running all over the court in the vid? You have a lot of energy for an um... old 'un. (giggle)

imbeingheldhostage said...

You are SUCH a good sport. I might've feigned a broken ankle to keep from doing all of that running :)

jinksy said...

Full marks for effort! x

Margaret's Ramblings said...

A dammed good result I would say. I mean if we hadn't wrecked our bodies giving birth they wouldn't be here to try and make us look stupid would they, LOL. You'er a braver Mom then me. Margaret

*Goddess* said...

Does that "WA" on your shirt stand for "waaaaaaa! we're losing!"? LOL:)

The Future Was Yesterday said...

Chewy obviously has a death wish (smile). I would have discreetly suggested you stock up on ointments and creams for prolonged life muscles and joints before the game.:)

And you put forth your escapades for the world to see!!! That can only mean one of two things.
1)You're the greatest Mum England has ever known, or:
2)All your bats have left your belfry.

I await Chewy's expert diagnosis!:P

P.S. All that scampering about. Don't they have golf carts to avoid that, over there?

What a gracious loser you are!

(Notice how I didn't highlight the word 'loser'.)

mrsnesbitt said...

How awesome! Netball was something I was never good with, being a shortarse, however I did manage to make it to the Hockey Team! lol! Memories!

Shrinky said...

Chewy, wash your mouth out girl, this is netball, nothing like that woosy game you lot over there call basketball, so there!

imbeingheldhostage, do you know, I SERIOUSLY did consider crying off at the last minute, but the little 'un frog marched me down there anyway - no mercy that one.

hi jinsky, I surprised myself by having a blast in the end (smile).

Hello Margaret, I like the way your mind works (smile). Welcome to my humble abode, it's good to see you in here.

Goddess, it should have stood for "wrong Age", now if only these kids had known me at 14..!

Hi there Dan, oh I lost me marbles years ago hon, it's no secret. As for that Chewy, she's got a nerve, I happen to know I am a spring chicken compared to her - teehee!

sj, so glad you didn't rub it in.. (said with slitty eyes).

Denise, I kept very quiet about having once been the captain of my netball team, oh how the years humble!

Pouty Lips said...

My "WA" would have to stand for "wanna aspirin" due to all of my achiness - or maybe "wheelchair anyone?"

~Babs said...

Wow, I'm impressed!
My WA would have been "Wheelchair Assisted".
Ooooh that Chewy,,,snicker/snort,,,,such a trubble maker.
(always liked that in a gal)
#:-D

Shrinky said...

Oh Pouty, now you are definitely my kinda' geriatric (grin) - remind me to call on you next time I get summonzed..?

Oh for the love of God Bab's, you know faaar better than to offer that girl one word of encouragement, don't you?? I don't even KNOW her, she's a stalker, so she is!!! (Wink)

Scott from Oregon said...

What a great reminder that cigarettes suck the air out of a gal...

Akelamalu said...

It's not the winning, it's the taking part that counts - good on ya gal!

CHEWY said...

TFWY - She is the greatest Mum.

I'll have you know Basketball was invented just 2 miles from my house.

Hey! Hey! Hey! - I went for my mile walk today and did my stretches.

My WA = Wise Arse (wink)

david mcmahon said...

Happy mutter's day!

Suldog said...

What is "Netball"? Is it similar to football (soccer)?

Shrinky said...

Oh scott, can it you (swat!)!!

Akelamalu, you are so right girl, and it was a great bit of fun, too!

Awww Chewy, thanks hon (hugs). A mile walk AND stretches? Sheesh, guess it has to be wise arse, def can't be wide arse after all those efforts.. wink.

Oh David, only you (smile).

Suldog, it's a harder version of basketball - no back board, you can't run with the ball, and can only bounce once before passing. It's very fast, not like that game for softies across the pond (teehee).

Pat Houseworth said...

I "ref" baseball, football(American), and basketball, all at the High School level. But these days the only active thing I play is Dartball....those big Widdy Darts are challenge enough throwing them underhand.

Jules~ said...

Look at you! What a good job you did and a good sport too. I don't know that I could run back adn forth like that for a couple of hours.

Alex L said...

WA and WD are the best positions to play, they are the backbone of the team. Did you crush that little girl, they need to be taught how to play. And you can't go lightly on them.

Casdok said...

Looks like great fun!

San said...

Foul play! On the ref's part, I mean.

You amaze me, Shrinky. You simply amaze me.

i beati said...

I feel the fact that you are moving around is a boon to us all !!!sandy
