Oops, I only need 9 fingers!

Shabbat afternoon was really fun! A bunch of my classmates and I decided to play football on a concrete field. It was very hot, but as we were playing 2 hand touch, we thought for sure noone would get hurt. After about 2 hours of playing, a bunch of kids from Young Judea's Machon program came over to play with us. The HUC gang was winning, so we were pretty pumped. Then it happened. I was going out for a pass that would have been a touchdown. The quarterback threw a perfect pass, but instead of catching it the right way, I tried to catch it with my pinky. Two seconds later, I looked at a disgusting dislocated finger. After about an hour at Magen David Adom (the 24 hour clinic open on Shabbat), and after the most excruciating pain I have ever experienced, I walked out with my finger wrapped. Unfortunately, I am done with football and softball for 5, my blog won't be as great as it would have been for the next few days. Bear with me...I'll do as much as I can!

What a great move, Boxt! Next time try catching it with your mouth (kidding! :) (thought you might miss some of the good old HM teasing)) Glad you are adjusting well to life in Israel. It is enjoyable keeping up with your adventures and partying.
