Now, before I go on, I need to explain something. I really don't care for football. I don't understand what a 1st down is or what a team has to do to get one or what positions are what. But when your Grandson is playing, one needs to put aside all that nonsense and go see the boy play.
Friday night his team played a neighboring school. We had this date on our calendar * go see Andrew play at Warwick HS* since the beginning of the season. It turned out to be a rainy day. I don't like football and I couldn't think of anything worse that sitting on a hard, cold stadium bleacher in a driving cold rain. But we were committed to go and I was determined to go with joy!
Just before it was time to leave, it started to pour again!! Fortunately, it must have been an isolated situation.The football field did not share the downpour =)
We watched Andrew play. We watched his team score. We clapped and cheered. Zoe charmed everyone around her....had to throw that in =) Lynn yelled his lungs out! Some stumpted on the metal bleachers, which made an aweful racket, to motivate the team. I guess that's the purpose!
And they won!!!!
This was one happy young man
Andrew with his happy Aunt Ellen
I asked his Mom (my daughter Kim) if his Nana (me) should attend more often!! Andrew also thought that could be a very good thing =)
