Great Weekend

Let me first congratulate my DCU Mercy under 20s team for winning the National Cup a few weekends ago (our 18s also won!)! They were so awesome. I keep telling everyone that they made my job pretty easy—they are a very talented group, are good kids, and are very unselfish players. Those are some true blessings to have as a coach.

This past weekend was super fun. I had coaching on Saturday morning like I always do, and rode my bike there and back (yay me). I’m really trying to execute these New Year’s resolutions! I then packed my things to catch a bus down to Cork later that evening to visit fellow scholar Maddi (Mad-Dog) Ward. My team also played her team the next day, so we decided to make a little weekend trip out of it. It was so nice to catch up with her and share some laughs. My team played great on Sunday and we went home to Dublin with a win 🙂 

To watch the SuperBowl (yes, people care about it here, surprisingly!), I met up with some classmates in town for a little bit, then hung out with fellow scholar Kelsey later on. It was so nice to be celebrating something so American and have the Irish so into it as well. I (regretably) did not watch the second half and overtime, but by that time it was about 3 am Irish time. I definitely missed being at a typical American SuperBowl party though! I missed the wings, chips and dip, baked goods, wings, any and every snack food, comfy seating, big TVs, and the commercials! The commercials didn’t play here since the game was being streamed by a different network!!!! So sad, right?!?! It’s okay, I’ll get over it 🙂 

Good times and good company.
