“We’ll send him a red cap and a Speedo”


In honor of his namesake, Cousteau made some interesting discoveries on his first day out.  17 posted for Cousteau’s #VirginQ at #GridIron, and he did not disappoint.

I think we all knew Cousteau played soccer, but I don’t think we knew he was a current soccer coach.  This became crystal clear when we got to the field for lots of footwork drills.  It was well done and demonstrated that we can all use some focus #understatement on our footwork.

It was a beautiful, crunchy morning on the fields, and Earthworm brought it home with a great closing prayer.  Remember the Thursday Convergence!

Toga and Cousteau
