Week 8

November 26th, 2012 | Uncategorized

My first Thanksgiving in Belfast was class as the locals would say! Deirdre, Gareth and my teammates on the Ulster Elks team surprised the Scholars by showing up to the dinner in their best ‘American attire’. My one teammate had the middle school look down perfect with his fitted cap, sweatpants and swooshy Notre Dame Starter jacket. The only thing that threw his look off was his Movember ‘stache, which is his new excuse for why women are not talking to him 🙂 

In all, over 20 hungry people were in attendance and the layout was everything I could have asked for and more. Sport Changes Life and the Elks made us Scholars feel like family and the cherry on top was a surprise video from our actual family and friends back home. The videos were funny, touching and made us feel at home even though we were across the Atlantic. 

Even though we were sweating out the turkey, gravy and potatoes from Thanksgiving, the Men’s Elks team was able to take care of business and get a comfortable win in Donegal on Saturday that kept us on top of the Northern Division. Thanks for reading!
