Scottish Plate finals, the abridged version

    Egg and bacon sarnie for brekkie.
    Girls nervous; feeling ok.
    Me, cappie, announced to the crowd, very cool.
    Bad first set.
    Shit second set.
    Leading in the third set 16-10.
    Boy arrives.
    Slid across the floor to retrieve ball, receiving burn in the process. (Looks worse than pic, or at least feels worse.)

    Bottle it and lose third set 20-25.
    Gutted, AB-sol-utely gutted.
    Teary.
    Received medal, no spoon. (Pictures do lie; I was not happy.)

    Lots of friends supporting.
    Feels nice, but loss is devestating.
    Shouted wildly at other match.
    Will lose voice tomorrow.
    And coming down with a cold.
    Throat on fire.
    Still gutted and feeling v emotional.

:( please don't get sick. you deserved the medal solely for sacrificing your body to the floor for your team. Lacar would be proud.

oh yah, right. a good opportunity to use a vocab word. (btw, i said 'vocab' for you b/c i know how much you love it.) "So incredibly sorry you're feeling seedy today...please don't get sick."

Yeah, you got a medal! Loud applause X 3. ZTowns has cold also. Going to the doctor or self medicating?

Amah - self-medicating, as I sussed out it was only a sinus drip.

svety - cheers mate. I was really just so frustrated that it got so bad and I could do nothing about it, really. The guys' game was good, but they encountered the same problem -- a better team. Lost in 4.
