I spent three days in Virginia recruiting this weekend in 75-degree weather, but I'm currently trying to ignore the fact that my toes are freezing and it feels like winter in the middle of spring here in Omaha.
I'm sure you're now wondering why I'm outside, right?
Well, I'm not a huge baseball fan (I am only when it's a hot summer day and I can walk out of the ball park with a nice tan), but I did want to be a part of history and watch our Creighton baseball team take on Nebraska in the first game ever played inside the new TD Ameritrade Park Omaha.
So, in other words, I'm not totally into the game - hence the fact that I'm blogging during the third inning - but I did think it would be pretty cool to be here tonight for a bit. The park is beautiful and well worth the time and money put into it. Our baseball team is one lucky group of guys...
A bunch of our girls are here somewhere. I'm not really sure where exactly, but I know they told me at weights this afternoon they were planning on coming to the game for a bit - I'm sure for pretty similar reasons as mine. I could be wrong, but I can't think of one player on our team that would be super into baseball.
Anyways, considering the fact that I'm not in a particularly creative writing environment at the moment, I'll keep this brief...
Today was a pretty busy day for us as a coaching staff. It's our last week of court workouts with our team, so we're doing individual sessions with our players in attempt to prepare them for working out on their own in the upcoming summer months. Our other goal is to somehow show them and emphasize again what needs to improve between now and next fall in order for us to become a better basketball team.
Here was my individual workout schedule for the day:
8:00 AM - Carli
11:45 AM - DaNae and McKenzie
2:00 PM - Alyssa Kamphaus
2:45 PM - Sarah Nelson
3:30 PM - Riley Norman
4:00 PM - weights
The sessions are intense, but as an assistant, these are the hours in the day that I look forward to most...
Then again, anything trumps not being able to feel my toes. :)
I promise I'll have more to write about next week - and a little more time to do it.
