It has been a really long time since I blogged. I didn't have much to blog about. No one wants to hear about my unexciting life in Campbellsville. And even since I got back to Bowling Green, there wasn't too much to report. I have been working at Red Lobster. But I just got hired by Fruit of the Loom, and will start soon. I will be an order entry specialist in the customer service department. I am really excited about starting the new job and feeling more like a grown-up. I will still work at Red Lobster part-time to make some extra money, but won't be there much.
But the new job isn't the most exciting thing going on right now. I just got off the phone with Chuck, and its official-he will get his first career start this Friday in the first round of the playoffs. Chuck has waited for a long time to get a chance to play. Last year he was the #1 qb going into summer camp, and a student transferred in and was named starter. Then when that kid got suspended, they promoted the #3 qb to first string, and Chuck never saw the field. This year, a new quarterback transferred in, and he is really good, so he was the starting quarterback. The qb who jumped ahead of Chuck last year is now the 2, and that leaves Chuck as the #3 qb. The coaches put him on the kick return team and field goal unit, but he's still not on the field much. Well, this past Friday on senior night, the #1 qb hurt his shoulder on a big hit. He won't play this week. And the #2 qb is suspended for an off the field incident, so that makes Chuck #1 this Friday.
For years now, I told Chuck that he would get his chance. But when I saw how good the starter and backup were, I will be honest, I didn't think it would happen. Chuck is the emotional leader of the team, even if he doesn't play much. If anyone deserves a chance to play, it is Chuck. I wasn't planning on coming in this Friday, but it now appears that I will be making another quick trip to Chatty. I wouldn't miss this one for the world.
