Because there are 11 teams in the league, every week one of the teams gets a bye week... This week was our week. So instead of the usual grind we changed it up. Had a couple days off and instead of the usual game on sunday we had an intersquad scrimmage. Split the team into two groups of six and played a 40 minute running time game. It was kinda fun and much better than practice obviously. We bet a pizza dinner on the game and my side won, so we're all going out for pizza wednesday night.
Another part of the bye week is going to do some community service. The team that has the bye is sent by the league to a different town/city every week. For our week we went up north to a neighbourhood outside of Haifa. We played a game against a youth team up there and signed autographs/took pictures. Each player had a kind of collectors card made for them by the league... we signed them all and gave them out to the kids. It was a pretty good time and afterwards we went out to eat together. Back at it for the rest of the week getting ready for our game sunday
