FiFa 08

Longtime no see, I have been traveling like crazy trying to make it back to MN. I left Columbus on Nov. 18Th. We had been training since our last game in a mini camp and it concluded on November 17Th with a game against a Mexican team. It was good to be able to play in a game again after not playing in one since the D.C game. I played OK at best. HAHAHA.

I was so ready to go home. My body was in shambles and mental I am drained. I started out on my trek and stopped in Cleveland for a night. I stayed with my old host family, the Whitney's, and played some xbox and Nintendo wii with them. My host mom must have thought it was a holiday so she let the kids stay up late and go to school after second period.

The following day I drove to Chicago through high winds, rain, snow, sleet, and ice. It was crazy. I stayed one night with my sister, Alissa, and went out to eat with her friends Jay and Jet. Afterwards, she of course asked me to set up her wireless surround sound home theater as a "fee" for staying with her.

So far the trip had already felt incredibly long and I was only half way home. I left Chicago and went to Omaha (completely out of my way). I wanted to see some friends there since I have not been back to school in a longtime. I was able to go to a Jimmy Eat World concert with my buds and it was great. It felt good to just be back somewhere familiar. I never thought I would say it, but I have missed school and my friends. I stayed in Omaha from Friday to Tuesday. I was even able to catch a soccer game and see how good the boys where this year. I am not going to lie I was a little disappointed in what I saw. I did not feel they looked like a top 10 team.

On Tuesday I was finally able to make it home and my dad anxiously sent me to work the very next day. Some father huh? I worked one day and then it was Thanksgiving. I want to thank all of you for all the prayers throughout the season. It has been a great experience.

I am not going to write again until I go back to Columbus sometime around January 15TH.

Also last weekend was my birthday and I flew out to Seattle to spend it with my brother. I just wanted to say thanks to him for showing me an awesome time and for getting tickets for the Switchfoot & Relient K concert.

Thanks again,

Andrew

PS Merry Christmas
