The Waco scrimmage was the first full contact play for many of the Outlaws. There are lots of rookies this season. One rookie observed that she was surprised at how intense the play really is. The Outlaws scrimmaged an experienced Dallas Diamonds team, lots of our rookies against lots of their veterans. It was eye-opening. You just can't get the "feel" of the game in practices.
|Not the fanciest socks but interesting.|

In pink. The socks have little pink piggies. I
wonder if she has other socks/shoes
ensembles at home.
Doesn't matter. I got three socks photos at practice Saturday.
|The other socks shots were static. This is an action photo. Hope|
you're impressed that I can get a clear shot of socks in motion.
The player is running to receive a ball. I'll post the full
photo sometime later.
But really, the action at practice has been, well, not that active. Now the players have been feeling the action. They're running around and working up a sweat and getting ready for the season. But the team hasn't been scrimmaging with each other. The hitting hasn't been serious.
So I found myself just getting close-ups. And as I've edited the photos I came up with a theme: "We're ready." As you check out these photos do you see what I see? A sense of preparedness. We've been practicing. We've worked out under simulated game conditions. We're in shape. We know what to do. Now bring on those Tulsa Eagles.
|I like catching a serious expression. Don't know her name.|
|Taking a break in practice to rehydrate. I'm bored but|
the players aren't. But they're ready for the season to begin.
|This is Cookie, one of the Quarterbacks. She looks|
ready for the season to begin.
|Should know her name by now but I don't. As I|
said in a prior post I'm kinda shy and try to stay out
of the way and don't annoy the players with a bunch
of silly questions like "What's your name?'
