- "Field hockey looks easy"
- Me: "okay, lets see you run for 70 minutes non-stop btw you have to be hunched over so forget about breathing and youre squatting the entire time so your quads and butt are on fire but block that out because someones about to drive that large solid plastic ball into your leg at about 40mph, oh and that girl whiffed and nailed you with a stick made of kevlar aka what they make bulletproof vests out of oh and it's summer so it's like a gazillion degrees times ten because we're playing on the sun's surface aka turf.
- do you want to rethink that statement now?"
Anyone know where the field hockey cakes are?
Anonymous asked: what's the role of the sweeper in fh?
The sweeper is the defender that sits the farthest back than anyone else (except the goalie of course). They are last line of defense before the goalie. Typically they are the strongest defender on the team, but the sweeper must be confident mentally that no one can get by them :)
First match of the year was on Sunday. My butt hates me.
