We need to step up our level in the game. Dead last in the BRPL E2 doesnt sit well. No more excuses, just better results.

Last Sunday, after the BRPL Event 2, my wife and I went to church and heard a sermon based off of Philippians (a book in the bible), chapter 3. I kind of felt like God was encouraging me (w/ regard to our event), as well as others (w/ regard to their own life situations), with this one passage of scripture. Here's an excerpt that I feel our team can use as inspiration:

"13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." (Read it in context here: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...+3&version=NIV) The scripture's spiritual context has some real life practicality. Let's forget about the past failures and aim forward w/ some goals for our team. I suggest going over some goals for the team at the next team meeting/practice.

Let's use our performance that day as a wake up call and as inspiration to do some good things about it. We ain't a bunch of young teenagers or even some young 20yr olds, but we can still shoot our guns and use our wits. With some drills and some scrimmaging during practice, over and over again, I believe we can do better next time. The practices will need to be an iterative process. Also, conditioning can be useful. Hitting the gym and exercising w/ a good diet could help out, too. I've suggested before about meeting up some weekends at a park to do some conditioning and possibly do picnics/pot lucks w/ the family in place of going to the paintball field to practice. Anyone up for this?

Here's another scripture which has some real life truths that you can scrutinize on your own time and decide to apply in your life or not:
"The Need for Self-Discipline

24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize." http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...27&version=NIV

Here's my 2 cents:

I just got my jersey with my name on the back and Kamandag on the front. I hesitated for so long about doing it and I told John I don't do anything half ***. I either have to do it all out or not at all.

That said, if we are going to do this, let's do it without excuses, hesitation or fear. If we are having practice, I'm there. I'm not showing up to kick it or hang out. I'm showing up to try to get my, and our game up.

One thing I've learned in the last year is, in order to get better, you need to do whatever is needed, no matter how hard it is or how much it hurts. Then, get up and do it again tomorrow.

So, are we really going to do this?

This weekend (or most weekends), I can do Sat, but not Sun. I'm down for either Warped, Ambush or CPP. Can anybody else go on Sat?

I'm scheduled for work on Saturdays. But, if you give me enough time, I can probably switch work days.

Most guys can not do Saturdays because of work or family functions.
Sundays are the days we normally get down.

Cool. Keep me posted, Brew, and let's coordinate to make it happen.

Got it. Whatever way we can make it happen, let's just all try to be on the same page. Whether it be Sat or Sun that a teammate can make it out, we should all try to drill the same drills in practice. If there are some specifics a teammate would like to work on, they should share it w/ the team and we can work on them all together. There could be two or more teammates w/ the same things that they'd like to work on and working on them together will help unify us even more while stepping up our game at the same time.

Outside of the typical weekend practice, it should also be a given that we should work on our individual skills during the week. Whether it be going to the gym, going for a run or practicing your snap shooting form in front of a mirror at home for 10min., we should be all trying to improve our game when not w/ the whole team.

Define early. The field probably won't be ready before 10.

I'm gonna try to be at Warped this Sun. from 8-9am. We will have our church services in Santa Monica @ John Adams Middle School (J.A.M.S.) at 10:30am starting in June, so I can try to get to the field early to show whoever will be there early some ideas I have for drills and they can show the rest of the team.

Bring a note pad and pen or iPad to take some notes.
