This week was not as eventful as last week with respect to things to write about on the web page. The weather is getting cooler here and the nights are getting longer which just pretty much means that its finally getting dark outside. You know the feeling that you get at home around September and October when it starts to cool off, the leaves begin to turn colors, hunting season is coming in, and you can smell football....well that's how it feels over here right now.
We did the normal run every day and lift every other day this week again. I'm starting to fear that I may be getting in shape. I also cut Mario's hair this week with some Euroclippers. They were a little different than the ones at home, but we still got it done. We made it into town, during the day, a few times this week and I showed Mario the tourist street, the changing of the guards, and the castle. Below is a picture of the changing of the guard scene and one of water fountain in the city.
While we were at the castle of course we went in for the historical tour of the museum inside. The halls that we did go on were showing the armor that they use to wear back in the day. They showed how it evolved from one generation to another. It was pretty neat to see and of course Mario was reading each sign posted below every item.
We also went over to eat at Hakan's house this week as well as eating with the offensive coordinator one day. It was nice to go over and eat and we just solved the worlds problems all night. We ate chicken and ribs then had some Swedish pudding dessert. It was similar to a dessert dish that I had eaten in Costa Rica one time.
Our game this week was on Sunday rather than Saturday hence my page being updated later. On Saturday we went and watched Stockholm play against Arlanda. I have 2 pictures of us from that game.
Notice Jessica Simpson sitting just in front of us...she was hot!
This week we played on Sunday against the #1 team in the league and it showed. There are really no details worth writing other than the fact that we got manhandled and took a severe beating. The game was in Carlstad which is like a 3 hour ride from Stockholm and is near a big lake. That was the last game of the regular season and now this week starts the playoffs. We have to play against Solna again which should be an interesting game seeing as how the last time we played them we beat them 67 - 62.
