#7 Bye Week

Whew, another thriller!  Is anyone still sweating from the Badger game on Saturday?  Was that a close one or what?!  It was back and forth the entire game, but we were lucky enough to pull out a 31-30 victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes.  I even got a high-five from Bucky after the game, which was really cool!

This week we have what is called a “bye”.  It means that we do not have a game next Saturday. Every team gets one of these at some point during the season.  Although we do not have a game, we still practice 3 times this week to make sure that we stay sharp and don’t get rusty.  The bye week could not have come at a better time for us.  We have a lot of injured and banged up players that need a week to rest and get healthy.

So what will I do with this extra free time this week?  Yesterday I drove up to Green Bay, Wisconsin, to attend the Green Bay Packers versus the Minnesota Vikings professional football game.  My favorite team, the Packers, won in a fight-to-the-finish game.  It was a lot of fun just being able to just watch the game as a fan rather than having to play in it as a player.  It was refreshing not being nervous or feeling pressure before the game.

I will also use my extra free time to catch up on schoolwork.  I am a little bit behind right now, so my goal is to get caught up and also possibly get ahead so that the next few weeks it won’t be so stressful.  My toughest class is accounting.  In this class, we learn about how people and businesses record the money that they spend.  There is a very specific way that you have to do this so at the end of each year you can see exactly where your money went.  It helps individuals and businesses realize if they are being smart with their spending.

The message for you guys is that you have to use your free time wisely.  You need to have fun, no question there, but you also need to have your priorities straight.  If you have homework or your parents tell you to clean your room, then you should do that first before play time.  You will be surprised how much more you can accomplish in life if you maximize your free time.

Thanks again for the cheer that you sent me before the Iowa game.  You guys are very creative writers.

Have a good week everyone.  I can’t wait to see pictures of your Halloween costumes.

On Wisconsin,
