Hope everyone is having a good week. This one's been a little rough for me, it always is after having a holiday weekend. First group of test & papers are due next week, so I've got a long, stressful weekend ahead of me.
Before I get to that though, I get to enjoy some good, hometown Friday Night Football. I don't know about you guys, but where I'm from Friday Night Football is a HUGE deal. It's almost like a religion. Last week, my high school team played our cross town rivals. We beat them for the first time in 2 years. I've never been prouder of a group of guys. (we're in the white, the other guys are in red)
As much as I love the football...they're only part of the reason I go to the games...
The marching band...my little sister has been in band since the 7th grade, but this is her first year to march. I don't think I could be more proud of her. She loves what she does & it's fun to watch her and support her.
I don't know much about football, but I've learned a lot over the last year. Maybe you're the same way. Just sit down with your mom/dad/brother/uncle/grandpa...watch a game & ask tons of questions. They might get annoyed if they're really into the game, but if you really want to understand the sport, they'll take the time to make sure you do.
So...watch a game this weekend, or if you can, go to one...there is honestly nothing better than sitting on a set of metal bleachers with a cup of cheap hot chocolate on a chilly, fall Friday night.
P.S. I'm sure everyone knows that today is September 11. I still remember exactly where I was on that day 8 years ago. Take a moment to say a prayer for the soldiers & those who protect our freedom every day and a moment of remembrance for all those who lost their lives on that horrific day.
