Aaaaand Golf season is officially over...NOW WHAT! Many of you might think the Fall season is a time to relax from your horrific summer wedding schedule or nurse your tennis elbow injury. Maybe enjoy a pumpkin spice latte (seriously?) or enjoy some apple picking (said no-one ever).
However, you would be very wrong to use the next few weeks to wind down when you should be getting your sports #@$% together. Why? Halloween is over and after giant penguin mountain bikers finished appearing, the holidays definitely will NOT end. It’s like wedding season all over again minus the 10 trips to Men’s Warehouse. It all starts with a harmless costume party and before you know it you’re ringing in 2017 and realizing you haven’t been #BeActiveBeSocial at all! You might have caused an accident gazing at Maine foliage and started living off apple crisp in the break room #EveryDamnDay. Don’t let this happen to you, and take the following Rod Blog suggestions seriously. Do this Before the holidays roll in with Christmas morning engagement selfies.
First, GO TO A HAPPY HOUR! I’m not sure when this became unpopular with the youth? There is NO WAY Netflix & Chill starts before 10 pm. Do yourself a favor and invite your teammates out after your next Soccer, Flag Football, or I.T.W.P. game. Put snapchat on hold for an hour, refresh with some sports beers, and forget about this horrible election season. Think about the game you just played, the goal you scored and who will be nominated at the 2017 CASPYS AWARDS SHOW - January 6th 2017 @Portlandhouseofmusic.
If happy hour is too much of a commitment, you might enjoy...wait for it...
A POP UP!
Casco Bay Sports will have a few coming up next month. Keep checking the website for Ping Pong & Dodgeball tournaments in December.
In addition, #Mastlandingbrewingco Presents “A Night of Human FoosBALL” starring Wessie IPA to try something new. It doesn’t hurt that the beer is extremely good.
Finally, have you ever heard of Wallyball? Hitting a volleyball off walls with three of your friends will not disappoint. Try it on 11/16, guaranteed smiles all around. Bring a friend too because this experience will be the gift that keeps on giving.
To sum up the overall message: Try something new. Also, if your team is thinking about “Taking this season off C-Rod”, think twice! I myself have fallen victim to the holiday blues and my beloved Thursday Night BOHICA soccer team never fully recovered. If it’s not broken don’t fix it.
Good luck this apple picking season and see you on the pitch!
BOHICA IS BACK
