Go Rangers

The little things in life are the most exciting when residing in the Third-World. Friday morning we wake-up thrilled with the prospect of listening to a football game on the internet. It makes us feel connected to the people we are closest to in Minnesota.

Last week the 47 to 7 victory was enjoyable even though the announcer seemed not to understand his job, or speak English. We listened to crowd noise and heavy breathing for two hours, but felt we were in the stands just by enjoying the crowd noise.

The Forest Lake Rangers head to Woodbury tonight to take on the Royals. The Royals are coming off of their first win of the year against Jefferson last Friday. Woodbury hopes the rain will slow down the Ranger rushing attack, which is tops in the conference, but those might just be high hopes. Coach Cleary expects an even better game from his boys this week and the Rangers should score early and often. His goal is to get the lead early and rest some horses for a big 3 week stretch. Playing on the road in this conference is tough, but Cleary thinks his team is ready. With a win, the Rangers will stay in 2nd place in the conference with Cretin in its sights.

Woot woot. Ten hours till game time.
