Blogville Barkers!

Thank you all for pawticipating in the furst ever Mayorz Marathon.  It was a blast!  Now we're moving right along . . .

After counting up the comments left for team names (we could only count the ones in which one specific name was chosen), the overwhelming majority vote was:

 Blogville Barkers

So that is the official name for our soccer team.  Now you need to remember a few dates:

Tomorrow (Tuesday) - Coach Easy will be posting our furst training on how to play soccer!

April 25 (THIS Saturday) - Deadline for reporting in uniform!!  You need to send a photo of yourself in your official soccer uniform.  Remember to put your number on it too. To get a copy of the uniform click HERE.  If possible, please send it to us on a transparent background.  Any cheerleaders also need to send us their photos either in your cheer leading uniform or with pom poms on (if pawsible) a transparent background.  Email to cecampbell[AT]msn[DOT]com.

May 5 - Furst Official Practice!

May 19 - Our furst official game against The Slayers!

Coach Easy is here to get train us to be pawfessional soccer (football across the pond) players!

One last thingie.  It is always proper to play the national anthem before the game begins.  So we either need someone to compose one or suggest an existing piece of music.  We need help on this so let us know!

  1. We'll be in the stands barracking for you!

  2. Well, I'm still recovering from my broken toe BUT I will bring popcorn!

  3. Hmmm. An anthem? The only thing comming to our mind is that song from Princess Diaries where they sing about Genovia. Something like this...Blog-og-og-ville, the land I call my home. Blogville, blog-og-ville. Furever may your Blogville flag wave. (I hope someone comes up with a better anthem.)

  4. We will make sure our mom gets our uniform pictures to you on time. Sorry we are not very musical so can't give you any help with an anthem.

  5. Woo hoo to Coach Easy :-) It's time for Sugar to wear her black boots. Golden Woofs

  6. Can anyone join? I think my brother would be an excellent goale. He always steals my tennis balls, and then he doesn't return them.So he can stop stuff.

  7. How did we totally miss the soccer stuff?? Oh well, we will be there to cheer the Barkers on!!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  8. We will work on our uniform pics. What do the cheerleaders wear or is their choice


  9. I will have my pizza truck tuned up and ready to go!! Those players need fuel and so do the cheerleaders and fans.

    1. We thought of inventing a new word that would incorporate both terms but nothing sounded good.

  13. What about this piece of music as an anthem?

  14. I'm sure the Blogville Barkes will kick the ball 87 times in the goal of that Slayers... there is no chance for that team...we have Jim :o)

    Oh my grey cogs are whirring - think I may be able to offer up something for an anthem... leave it with me for a few days...... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  16. Oh dear dawg...I gotta get you my photos! I am on it! I will send today. I can't wait to get started.


  18. Hi Boys, Let the festivities begin. On another note-have you thought about dedicating these events to our buddy Goose for all the encouragement and team play he has shown us over the years. It makes my heart sad that someday soon Goose will be running free elsewhere and we won't have his presence in blogville anymore. Sending big hugs and kisses to you both!

  19. The marathon was wonderful! And I bet that soccer will rock too!!!!

  20. This just in...Blogville Barkers are about to start spring training! We like "We Will Rock You" but a "We Will Bark You" version. BOL!

  21. Hey, Ma is tryin' to do a transparent background, butts she is CLUELESS!!! Can you email her directions...she is a ditz. Thanks guys!

  22. Hi, it's Andy. I would love to join your team, but my Mommy can't put me in an uniform. She apparently had some thing on her old computer, but she can't now. Boo hoo, I will just have to eat cookies now. Oh well, maybe next season.
