For this game I had a date, Brian came. He won't make it to many games this season (read: any more) but Noah went to spend the night at Grandma's and Brian didn't have any good excuse not to go.
I will say, the game went a little faster, although the plays got kinda boring towards the end because the other team failed to score. The whole game.
And it was better because it wasn't a bajillion degrees. We needed sweatshirts and it felt more football weathery. I spotted our neighbors Jamie and Kelly and I shouted, " punch him in the face!" while walking up the bleacher steps. While they were paralyzed with embarrassment for me, we slipped into the seats beside them.
Good strategy, non?

Finally, Luke and his middle school teammates took the field for a few brief and glorious moments.
Luke was very excited to rush back and tell us about his experiences. It was a lesson for the poor lad.
|Hey, Luke--where is the rest of your team?|
|Rule #1: Stay with the team|
I learned quite a bit at last night's game. I learned I can't pick my kid out at a distance, that the path to winning is paved with desire, never to wear a ginormous bow on the top of my head, and that it's always best to stay with the pack.
Game recap: Smithville scored in the first 32 seconds against the Chillicothe Hornets. Our boys got the fumble on the kickoff, and scored on the 1st play on offense. Final score: 35-0 Warrior victory.
