Yelp guys, this is it. Everything is on the line.
The Wait Is Over!
Are we going to proceed to the playoffs, or will this be my son’s last high school football game?
Today I’m a big ball of emotion. Well, I’m always that, but today is different. My son is a senior this year, and he’s playing his last year of high school football. I don’t think I can put into words the joy I have felt to be a part of his life this far. God trusted me with him, and I tried my best to be all that I could be.
Oh geesh, that sounds like a cheesy Army commercial from back in the day. “Be all you can be in the Army”! I fell for that line in 1994.
Anyway, this is about my son; let me try and focus
Tonight is the night that we have been waiting all season for; our boys go head to head with the team they have been craving to beat since the moment they stepped off the field after a horrible defeat. On the first day of practice, they trained as if their lives depended on it, and every night they dreamed about defeating the enemy.
This is their opportunity to do just that!
Will they defeat the enemy, or will they have to walk away and talk about this game for the rest of their life.
I’m sure you have all heard high school football stories. I know I’m not the only one. But, man, they are the best stories, and they keep getting sweeter over time. Especially if it ends in victory and not “The quarterback should have thrown the ball to me YA SEE, we would have won YA SEE (myah myah).”
Positive Vibes ONLY!
