Last night was our first official football game of the year. We lost
Last year our high school team made the playoffs and had a very good run until obliviated by a larger team (with very angry fans).
It has taken 7 years of band, but I am finally learning the rules of the game
I confess I find it confusing that the object of the game is to hit the person running with the ball; however, one can only tackle during certain times during the play. I find it confusing that we wear white pants - grass stains - HELLO. I am not sure why sometimes when the opposing team kicks the ball, no one catches it. The ball drops to the ground and all the players run to look at it and then someone touches it, but doesn't pick it up and run. I also find it confusing that it takes all those coaches (practically one for each player). Also, why do they pat each other's butts?
I joined other parents for a fantastic dinner out - grilled chicken before hand so there were no football concessions to add to my football confessions. That was wonderful progress.
