So this week I went to my first Hurling match ever. To be honest, it was so cool! I had no idea what was going on the whole time, but it was awesome! I definitely can wait to go to my next match. Hopefully this time I will know what’s going on. When I was there though, I was able to take to one of the goalies, Simon. He is my classes and he told about to the match. He was able to explain certain things to me so I was able to somewhat understand parts of the game.
I have to say though, the coolest part of the entire match was when Ryan and I were able to play a little bit. We hit the ball during half time, and it was fun. I accidentally almost hit the team Ulster was playing! But Hurling feels like a mixture between, soccer, baseball, and football. Weird sport, but super fun and amusing to watch. Very violent sport too. Man those kids go at it! Just excited for the next match this upcoming Wednesday. Go Elks!
