Every year during homecoming week we had a powderpuff football game. When I was in 7th or 8th grade one of the senior girls hurt her knee badly and the game got kicked off school grounds for a while. So my junior year we played in some random field in the dark, using only car headlights. But my senior year, someone talked the school into letting us play on the football field again.
My best friend in high school, Kelcie.
But wait, it gets better. There's video.
I have no idea what we're singing. I can't understand a word of it until "ARE YOU FIRED UP?!" "YES WE'RE FIRED UP!!" I think we were pretty excited.
I also have no idea why Kelcie is on the ground in the middle.
In case you can't tell, I'm the one in the blue Cabela's sweatshirt with the white paint on my face and the crooked ponytail.
Carrying the ball, screaming as someone tries to grab my flag.
I was sore for days after powderpuff.
Kind of reminds me of the Bodypump class I just started at the Y.
We're talking serious pain, people. Can't-walk-without-shuffling-and-moaning-pain.
It wasn't pretty.
