Itching to Play

A few nights ago I had a dream that I was playing in a basketball game. I have these dreams (where I am playing in a soccer or basketball game) ALL the time. In this particular one I got ejected from the game for "arguing" with the ref. It was totally a misunderstanding and I was actually trying to ask the ref a question but he thought I was mouthing off. I can't believe I am describing this dream to all of you because I don't really like hearing about other people's dreams myself...there are definitely exceptions to that...ANYWAY, I always wake up from these dreams right before I get to go back in the game or something and it absolutely KILLS me! As I lay in bed and realize I am waking up I try desperately to fall back asleep so that I can "play" in my dream. I guess I just miss it all so much.

Luckily we will be playing in a rec basketball league again this year so my wildest dreams can all come true. We are trying to come up with a team name and we each had to submit a few. Here are my submissions: Designated Drivers, Victorious Secret, Thunder Chickens, Screwballers, and the Fighting Chinchillas. I can only take credit for coming up with the Fighting Chinchillas. The others I found online. Victorious Secret is weighing in as the heavy favorite. Anyone have any great team names you'd like to throw my way?

In case the words "Fighting Chinchillas" weren't enough to conjure up thoughts of a tough-as-nails bball team, here's a little something to get your imagination going:
As for Victorious Secret, well I'm not going to go posting pictures of that. You'll just have to come to one of our games and see for yourself.

LOVE IT! First of all nice recovery on the not liking to hear other people's dreams. Second, I wish you were here so you could play soccer with us. Third, love the names, especially victorious secret, but honestly where IS the pic? Just kidding. We pretty much just call our soccer team the grandma's cause we are all old and have kids, even though Annie Gooch, Haylee Cuthbert (my cute cousin) Lisa something or other, are on our team and don't have kids, but the rest of us do. That is all I can think of, I am not so creative.

Why don't I play basketball!? I have had dreams about cheerleading. I had one where I was pregnant (with audrey) and they made me go out there in my uniform and cheer at the game. I did not wake up wanting to go back to sleep. You couldn't PAY me to go back and do that again. I like Victorious Secret. I wish I played!

LOL. Love this post. I love it when I stumble on your blog every now and then.
Thanks again for coming today. Hope I'm ready to play after this little squirt has gone and made me all out of shape.

I am having the same dreams. It is obviously getting to be that time of year again. I absolutely love all of your names. I told KIKI my vote would be Victorious Secret. I think it describes all of us so well.

I am with the majority of the comments and like victorious secret. very creative! I love having dreams about the old glory days! I am glad that they still have leagues so we don't have to be complete has-beens!

I'm sure all our husbands will be excited to see our "uniforms" too! haha.... I'm glad you're coming up with lots of good names. I'm having the hardest time thinking of any! We should have a little practice soon . . . just shoot around and stuff to start getting back into it. Can't wait for the season to start!

I for one like the fighting Chinchillas. Chinchilla Chicks might be another possibility.

I wish I lived in columbus near you- Not that you'd let me on the team (I'm so so so bad. do you remember julie winterton yelling at me because I was so bad?) but I'd love to come watch!

I have those dreams all the time. I usually don't get to play because I don't have my shoes or something.

I HAVE THOSE DREAMS TOO! I usually score for the other team though, or I fall down on the feild and go to sleep VERY frustrating. I'm gonna have to go in another direction and say I like thunder chickens. But Victorious secret is much more slimming.
