I posted an item on my Caddo blog about the 1930 football team. It seems that people have been watching men chase that funny shaped ball around forever. If there is anything that unites and divides people, especially men, it is sports. Team loyalty is paramount with them.
I apologized yesterday for my grandson’s Texas shirt. And yes, BTW, I had used the wrong photo and have now corrected it. It was probably one of those subconscious things because of the shirt. J Robert is now offering Katrina $100 if she will burn it. She countered with the fact that they ALL have them, which I think caused him to nearly have a stroke; her counter offer is $400 and she will not only burn them, but make a video of it for YouTube. We laugh, but Robert is a serious football fan and Katrina seriously likes to tease him.
I like to watch high school football, but can no longer do it unless conditions are perfect. It causes me too much pain to sit on the bleachers, especially if it is cold. And walking and balancing on our metal bleachers is nearly impossible without a cane or Gary’s help. Caddo needs some “old people” bleachers that are lower and more comfortable. I’ve just decided the games are no longer on my list of entertainment options. I’ll wait for the warmth of basketball in the gym, with a cushion, and sturdier bleachers.
Gary watches a few games on television. It makes me happy to see him enjoying them. I just wish he had someone here to watch with who really understands the plays and players. I know the basics and that’s about it. Run, tackle, run, tackle, someone scores. Maybe now that Austin is playing he will explain some of the details to his Nana.
Fall and football. Men everywhere are happy.
