Update, Preview of Upcoming Game

Good Afternoon! This week has gone by extremely fast and I wanted to give you a quick update on how things are going and a little preview of our next opponent. I won't have any other time to let you know how things are going so I figured I would write a quick note this afternoon. The reason I won't have much time to write tomorrow is because I am cleaning and doing some maintenance around the townhouse so it looks nice and clean for MY FAMILY!!! That's right my family will be here Saturday morning and they will be here through Thanksgiving. Now, just to let you know I am GEEKED, EXCITED, PUMPED, HAPPY, THRILLED, ANXIOUS, ETC, ETC that they will be with me for over a week. Those are just a couple words off the top of my head which describes how I'm feeling about there appearance in France. Finally, I will be coming home to my family after practices and games and will be able to communicate with them live and in person instead of via computer/skype. So thats a little bit about what I am looking forward to in the next couple days besides our game on Saturday.

Saturday we place the first place team in our league Cholet (6-1). We are currently 5-2 and in a tie for 3rd place in our league. We are at home this weekend and it should be a great game. I am looking forward to playing in front of our crazy fans again. Its always a great experience playing in front of the type of fans that we have. Hopefully we will have a sell out crowd again and the gym will be rocking. Cholet is a great team from top to bottom. They have a lot of players that have many different qualities. I am definitely looking forward to this next game. Well there is a little update about my family coming over and a little preview of our next opponent. The link below is some highlights from our last game. Again it is in French and there is more talking than highlights but that will have to do for now. Also I got the "OK" to put videos directly on my blog page but I am not so good with HTML so I am going to learn how to place a video in HTML from a staff member so you can view it directly on my blog page. I will get it eventually I promise haha. One other thing I want to ask you. I have the games that we have played on my computer and I was wondering if you would want me to put the entire game on my blog that way you can watch it??? Let me know through facebook, twitter, comments area, email. If I get enough people that would want to watch the entire game I will put them up. Take care and of course GOD BLESS. (Joshua 1:9)

  3. Ben, I talked with your dad yesterday and he is excited to be leaving for France today. He is pumped about seeing you play a couple of games and eager to be able to spend some time with you. I gave him some advice on siteseeing and he is loaded with guidebooks. I'm sure you will all have a wonderful time together. Enjoy your time together and good luck tomorrow against Cholet.

  5. Ben, knock them dead. It would be a great time to show the league your team is for real. I like the blog, I'm a Minnesota guy, grew up in duluth played for Duluth East. My dad went to NDSU so I have seen some of your games. Anyways, when you guys came down and played Kansas last year I was at the game. Honestly, I can't believe people didn't talk more about it. That was one of the grittiest performances I have seen. You played your heart out. Not to mention against a great Kansas team. I was really pulling for you to get picked up on the Twolves. I hope France is good for you and have a good Thanksgiving with your family. I just signed up to follow you on twitter @aarongroshong. Take it easy.

  6. Valentin,

    "put 'em up" was slang for "put them up" Like put the videos on the website. Hope this helped! :)
