A Season Starts in Memory

September 23, 2007

In loving memory of Mom G, teams wore black armbands in her honor today. She was everyone’s Mom on and off the field. Rain or shine she was there with cooler and chair. Her memory will live on in all our hearts, with the stories we tell, she will still put that smile on our face. Her chair may be empty, but her memory will not be lost.

Today was the inauguration for the new Sacramento Women’s Flag Football Association.  SWFFA Executive Director, Karen Leon provided opening remarks on the collaboration of the new organization and league within the community.  “The start of this season is a cumulating of many passions”, said Leon.  “The passion of this new founded organization will provide opportunities to all women who would like to play quality organized sports and women’s flag football”.

 The league was inaugurated by the iconic “Dee” capping remarks with “It’s a beautiful day for football”, despite the greyed drizzle.  Four teams battled for the first spot ranking, yet Dogg Pound captured the #1 slot for the first games of the fall season.  Season vets, young blood and fresh meat will rendezvous next week for the second week of the fall league with games at 10 am, 11 am and 12 pm at Curtis Park.
