Sometimes funny is in the action. Sometimes it is just an accident of when the camera stops the action. Sometimes both. This is a drill conducted during warm-ups. I caught this Outlaw in a mid-execution. Looks a little funny but she's doing what the DI (drill instructor) told her to do.
|Not sure I could do that.|
A half second later she would have looked more like this. Not a whole lot better. In my many years of watching football games I can't recall ever seeing a play where anyone raised a foot and reached out to touch his/her toe.
Well, punters. Almost.
Warm-ups take players through strange positions that must make sense to the DIs but don't make much sense to me. But do strike me as funny.
|Reminds me of Tim Tebow. Just a little.|
|They were running laps - more on that later - and just|
stopped to... well, to do whatever they're doing.
|There must be a reason for this...|
|We used to call this Jumping Jacks. When the ladies do it is it Jumping Jills? Sorry. Silly.|
|Certainly she knows that shoulder pads are|
worn under the jersey?
And I wondered why. Is it that we haven't gotten to the part of training where we explain how to wear a uniform? Rookies might not know. But this player doesn't look like a rookie to me. She looks a lot like a quarterback and quarterbacks tend to be smart.
|A friend also wearing the pads outside. Is this a case where|
one doesn't know and the other is acting the same so the
unknowing one won't be embarrassed?
|Not a real race. No one will win a gold medal. Just running to be running. |
Racing to nowhere.
