Spring! Um, no, wait a minute. They won, didn't they? How delightful. Of course, they have been winning all season - just winning in those things that don't show up on the score board. But they show up big time later in life, and those girls are so lucky to have your guidance. Congrats to them and to you. mowgli

Woohoo! The girls won!

Floridacracker said...

Yup! 3-0 last night in Starke. The girls played great!
It was cold, cold, cold!
They are all smiling today and I have a cold face as per our deal!

Caroline said...

Way to go, Ladies!
Good for you, oh Clean Shaven One!

Thunder did that for Dudes basketball team...he figured shaving his head didn't give them much incentive!

I'm glad they won one now, but I'm thinking it would have been nice if it were just a little warmer...

Hi Coach FC,

Congrats to you and the girls! I was wondering what all that screaming was.

I actually let out an audible gasp when I scrolled to the beardless photo! You crack me up.

eyeCATCHing Mute Monday iffin' I'd had yore pic.


We is still cold down heah--not in teens (how Utterly uncivilized!) but we made down to 28, brrrr!

robin andrea said...

I cheated. I saw your confirmation answer in the comments. Yay! The girls won! Congratulations, coach.

Island Rider said...

Yeah for the girls. And double yeah for their loyal and devoted coach!

Jen said...

Yay! Congratulations! You've EARNED it!

Doug Taron said...

So they picked the coldest day of the year to make you remove insulation. Congrats soccer ladies!

John Rife said...

LOL - I'm a beard wearer and when I trimmed it recently I came back into the family room and my dog barked at me like a stranger. Shaving a beard changes the whole shape of your face. I and shockingly my wife would miss the facial hair if it went away for good. Cheers to you though.

Hurricane Teen said...

~~!!CONGRATULATIONS!!~~

Ericka said...

i thought "SPRING!" first as well.

congratulations, coach and team!!!!!!

lisa said...

Good for the girls!!!! You look a lot younger without it;)

amarkonmywall said...

I was thinking you might have been drafted but then I remembered how old you are- and that the girls were in a tight competition... Congratulations to the girls! Hooray! Nice coaching.

(I will never understand men and facial hair. At the risk of making a controversial comment, very few women like it much and yet every guy grows it periodically. Perhaps it's the shaving that gets tiresome, which explains why Northern girls often take 6 months off on their legs...)

edifice rex said...

Yea! on the win! that's great!
And I have to take exception to the last comment. I LOVE facial hair on men and know other women who do also. In fact, my first thought was 'aaww, couldn't you have at least left a goatee?' :D

Floridacracker said...

Thanks y'all!
(blushing, Aunty)

They are so pumped about this one win, it apparently wipes out all memory of our season record!
Gotta love 'em!

We play a local rival Friday and then it's all done except for a tourney in Gainesville next week.
I have to say I am ready for the end.
I have a new respect for coaches and the time they put in.

As for the facial hair issue ...
Men's Health did a survey and most women thought a beard made a guy look 5 years older than actual age.
Yikes!
I usually do take my winter beard off in stages, but this was a deal for the whole thing so no moustache or goatee remnants this time.


Totally unrelated ... the ice on my koi pond was over an inch thick today!
DANG!
Could I have stood on that, Yanks?
(170lbs with big feet)

Thunder Dave said...

The answer is: Yes you can stand on that thickness of ice, but the real question is: For how long?
;-)
Hey come on I work in R&D what kind of an answer did you expect?

I'm sure there is an impericle model that exists that will calculate the thickness of ice that can sustain that mass at rest on it's surface, but I'll have to look for it!

Thunder Dave said...

According to WikiHow 4" (10cm) thick ice should hold 200lbs, but they don't recommend trying anything less!

Floridacracker said...

Thanks Dave!

Kevin,
Happy birthday! (belated)

kevin said...

Thanks. Yours is coming soon.

Native Mom said...

It means you just got better looking? I'm not a facial hair fan but love smooth face! Oh and congrats on the win.
