Penalties

Nothing intimidates the other team like a nice shiner. Pretty sure no one on the opposing team is going to mess with Number 8 on the Red Skeletons until that broken nose heals.

Abby, meanwhile, is learning to channel her energy into body checking her opponents (and occassionally her teammates). She's willing to do whatever it takes to get the ball, and sometimes that means throwing elbows.

"Did you see me knock those girls down and get the ball!?" she asked excitedly during a break in the game.

I gently pointed out that one of those girls is on her team, and she shouldn't steal the ball from her own Purple Panthers.

I'm thinking maybe we need to limit our professional soccer viewing around here before she picks up any new skills.
