So, at the same time #1 was in a pre-season tournament, #2 was a couple of towns over at a pre-season scrimmage game. King & I bet he wouldn't get much, if any, playing time. And this, my dear readers is why neither of us go on trips to Vegas.
My sweet friend(#73's mom) snapped this picture before he went on the field....
to play Center! All.The.Way.Through. the 4th quarter!
And according to her hubby (that would be #73's dad for people who like my tangent thoughts found within these parentheses) my boy didn't miss a snap...this includes shotgun snaps!(which I didn't know what those were until just now when I asked King, so if you don't know, I'll get him to explain it to you, too.)
I am one proud woman right now. I'm talking Cloud 9.
For 23 years I've missed my sweet dad....seems like a lifetime ago. Yet, all I have to do is slow down long enough to hear my own breaths, the rhythm of my heart beating. I close my eyes and know he is right here with me.
My incoming freshman is on the JV football team. I am extremely proud of him. He loves it. Great camaraderie! This week they began what is called "Two-a-days", meaning they practice twice in the afternoon with a break in between.
But, y'know, I do not believe anyone in the recent history of our family has ever smelt quite like this.
Also, I'm pretty sure
"Eau de Boule de Pied (Eau de Football)"
will never be one of Giorgio Armani or Pierre Cardin's best sellers. But I could be wrong.
I am so glad you stopped by. I hope you will find something here that makes you laugh or that you can relate to somehow. I love to read comments and encourage you to leave one. Also, if you are at all interested in sewing/crafts, visit my other blog, too. Sew....what now?
