Unnecessary Roughness - An illegal action in football where a player uses methods beyond what is necessary to block or tackle another player. Grabbing a player by his facemask, collar or head butting are all forms of unnecessary roughness. These are considered personal fouls because they cause a higher than average number of injuries.
That's exactly what happened to my grandson Caleb on Sat (see my blog from yesterday for details). I talked to Karry yesterday morning and she had called the Dr because Caleb still had a headache, I talked to her again on my home (bluetooth!) and she was just getting back from taking to see the Dr. He has a concussion.
So he's out of school until the head ache is gone, out of football practice/games until the headache is not only gone...but gone for at least 3 days in a row. Caleb says that the other player came at him helmet to helmet on purpose. But the hit needs to be on video for the league to do anything about. So for now...Caleb is at home...no video games, no TV, no school. no homework (now that he's not too upset about!), nothing that use his brain too much.
he likes school and football so he's bummed about it, but he also understands that a head injury is serious stuff. He's a tough kid and I love him beyond everything! Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers OK?
Eating was out of control again last night. Home seems to be a problem for me. I've been doing a lot of reading (on my tablet) and I'm thinking that maybe setting around only doing that may be triggering me to eat. I just need more control!
I did my 60 mins on the treadmill at work. I was "selected" as part of the group that was audited by our internal ISO. I hope I did OK. I tend to get "chatty" when in those circumstances.
