Dodgeball making a middle age man feel old.

Well tonight was the last night of ward dodgeball.  The stake young men’s presidency decided the best way to keep the young men out of trouble was to schedule some activity to wear them all out so they are too tired to get into mischief.

I know what you are thinking that is a great idea.  Those young h00ligans (yes you.  They think you are a hooligan not me.  I think you are great.) probably need to excert some energy.  The one thing those wise stake presidency failed to factor was that the young men leadership get roped into playing with the young men. 

Where the young men have plenty of energy to waste the young men leaders do not have much energy to spare.  Trying to keep with young men (some who are half your age and others one-third your age) is not an easy thing to do.  Sure our team dominated (props to Chase, Jake, Hunter, and Ethan) the other team (in your face Devin, Justin, Kyle, Austin and occasionally Jeff).  

So tonight this old man hobbles home and crawls into bed.  Sure I had fun and sure the young men did too.  But wow I feel old.  

Old but victorious. 

Good thing I don’t feel old and a loser.  You know who you are.
