Today was the Gallic Football championship, Dublin against Mayo. People explained this to me as the "Super Bowl of Ireland". Coming from an athletic background in a wide range of sports, I love learning how to play new sports! It was almost a mix of different sports such as rugby, soccer, basketball, American football, and a few more, which was exciting! Ultimately, the whole community came together and supported their team!
I had my first scrimmages, which were both against other victory scholars! The first was against my roommate, Kelsey's team. I had to stop myself once or twice when I almost cheered for Kelsey when she made a shot! Our second scrimmage was in Waterford against Britt and DaLacy! It was awesome knowing that basketball is bringing me around the country to see so many new things and experience different cultures! Waterford was absolutely beautiful! We stayed in a B&B and got to experience an incredible Irish breakfast! I'm not too sure how I've gotten through life without trying brown bread… Delicious! Freshly squeezed orange juice and perfectly poached eggs, it was quite a pregame meal! Glad I have a couple more items to put on my grocery list!
