What a beautiful day Saturday was.When my eldest called last week to wish me a happy birthday she mentioned my 10 year old grandson had a football game Saturday.His dad is a big guy and very active in sports.my grandson,RJ,plays base ball and Jr. takle football and big sis plays softball and volleyball.(she has a game Friday).I had planned on going many times before,but like when DD was young,I always had an excuse at the ready.Not anymore.I grabbed a couple folding chairs and DW and I headed to the small town just west of here where they live.The main street is lined with signs touting the team and individual state championships their high school kids have won.
This is classic small-town Americana.They had games for 5th,6th,7th and 8th graders on the playing field behind the high school.There were all kinds of families there rooting their little gridiron heroes.RJ had dad,mom,stepdad,stepmom,grandpa,two grandmas,sissy,an aunt and three uncles.They so cool in their blaze orange jerseys and helmets that made it look like their head was too big for their body.But the running and tackling was no joke.The booster club had a stand set up near one end zone selling water,pop,hot dogs and popcorn.At halftime the 5th and 6th grade cheerleaders came out and did their routines.It was such a hoot watching my kid go nuts whenever her baby ran with the ball or got tackled.I can’t remember when I’ve had a better time.Its the most sunshine I’ve gotten in years.Even got a bit of a tan.Looking forward to going again,maybe this coming week.
