First Flag Football Game of the Season

Tonight was our first flag football game of the season.‚  I am still playing in the Underdog Sports League at Memorial Stadium with the Screamin’ Eagles.‚  The night was a chilly 45 degrees and the sun had just set as our game started at 7 pm.‚  The team we played against was pretty easy, but our quarterback is still not playing that well.‚  Two seasons ago we had a different QB and went undefeated, but when we switched back to Ole in the fall our team was only 3-3 and got knocked out in the first round of the playoffs.

At the end of the game (which we dominated), a player on the opposing team looked up at me as he was about to hike the ball to his quarterback and flatly said, “Cheater”.‚  Not sure how I was cheating with two refs watching… I think some guys just don’t know how to handle losing gracefully.
