I haven't been able to update as frequently as I would like to. With high school football in full swing and all of my action shots to edit & send out weekly to the team, AND this crazy pinched nerve in my shoulder/neck (which seems to get worse when I type), I've fallen a little short lately.
Just a quick update:
We had our team luncheon & Varsity game last night which are usually on Fridays & it made it really hard to go to work today. My mind kept saying, "Varsity Football game=SATURDAY tomorrow! Anyways we won by 6 pts (27-21)...and it went down to the wire, which didn't help my pinched nerve because I act like I'm the one out there playing, leaning, screaming, stressing, yeah I'm a little crazy when it comes to football!
At the luncheon the coach was talking about how mom's always tell their kids, "You played good honey," & dad's will pull them off to the side & tell them the truth. Well not in my house! My poor boys get the truth from me. Not in a mean way, but after they've cooled off a little, I'll say, "What happened? You missed that tackle. You need to keep your head up, watch their hips (that tells what direction they're going to run). Or if they missed a pass, "Honey, remember catch the ball before you run!" This is a problem that you'll see even pros do.
Today, my son Elijah has his JV game. He's a sophmore & one of only a few that actually gets to play in the Varsity games too on special teams.
Our school is a huge powerhouse football school!
So today my text message to him was, "FUMBLES, FUMBLES, FUMBLES...be sure to be hitting hard & cause fumbles like you always used to (he's a linebacker)! Oh yeah & CATCH the ball before you run (he plays wide receiver on offense-the guy who catches the passes for those of you non football fans)!"
I'll let ya know how it goes...wish him luck!
