Yeah....you better read this and COMMENT people, because we don't know if or when this moment may happen again. I want accolades and site hits to me and Mr. Perfectly's site...because he's where all the info comes from and I imagine there will be NEWSPAPER RECOGNITION, so check his too......it's here.
My baby.....MAH BABY.....scored the WINNING TOUCHDOWN in the Freshman game yesterday. YES HE DID........It was MY BABY...!!!!! I have PICTURES to prove it!
We drove to St. Louis yesterday for the 10 a.m. game against the McCluer North freshman. It promised to be hot. I don't do hot. I filled up a bag with towels, wet wipes, a water mister and sunscreen. I loaded up my face and scalp with sunscreen BEFORE WE LEFT(so my scalp doesn't burn and then peel, causing me to explain to everyone I see that it isn't REALLY dandruff....but peeling skin from a sunburn) The visitor section faced the hot sun..OF COURSE.....but there was a breeze....thank god for the breeze, because I may have given up and missed the MOMENT........
Anyway, our local high school team has had an issue with fumbling.......this issue has been an ongoing one for years.....unfortunately the curse seems to have been passed on to our Freshman boys as well......we gave up points right away in the game. I don't know all the terminology, but at halftime it was them 14, US......2.....yes 2....as in TWO. The first half of the game went by quickly...and relatively cool....then halftime hit.....the sun was high above, and we were losing. Badly. It sucked. It was hot...at some point some other peoples kid got a touchdown for our team......yeah, great....JUST HURRY UP....Mr. Perfectly brought me an umbrella to keep the sun off, so I looked like a nerd sitting in the stands with an umbrella. But I DIDN'T CARE.........the other team had the ball.....yada yada yada......suddenly I saw a commotion on the field.....and some kid...one of ours...had the ball suddenly....and made a touchdown.......IT WAS #32.....WHO IS MY KID!!! I was screaming, and bobbing the umbrella like CRAZY screaming to the 10 other parents in my area...."that was MY SON.....THAT WAS MY SON". They patiently nodded and clapped.
The boys were all hugging son #2, and I think there was a yellow flag, so tension prevailed for a moment until the referees proclaimed that my BABY'S touchdown counted!! I was hoping the team would carry Son #2 on their shoulders to the sidelines, but that didn't happen....but that's ok....I'll send a memo, so if it should happen again, they'll do it.
Son #2 is a defensive player. Defensive players don't usually get the ball....because they are DEFENSE, not OFFENSE. Apparently, son #2 'stripped' the ball from the other teams' quarterback (QB) and ran for a touchdown.....it was awesome.
Here are a series of photos......MY KID IS #32......THIRTY TWO......32......There are alot, and I want you to LOOK AT THEM ALL.....and revel in his heroic actions to save the game!!!
After the game, fresh as a daisy!!
Okay, didja all look CAREFULLY at each photo? Huh? Examine them CLOSELY, because I want you to. I'm A PROUD MAMA!
Thanks for looking...Mr. Perfectly keeps his sports blog for all kids and parents so he can't openly brag about Son #2.....but lets hope there's a newspaper mention!
Woo Hoo...go Jays Freshman!!!
