Football season! Woo Hoo!!!
It shouldn't come as a surprise that we really enjoy football season around here. We enjoy watching games at all levels and it makes up a huge part of our autumn routine.
Last night Spencer had a pre-season scrimmage against a power house program. We went down to play a Catholic school in the area and when I say they are well funded, it's probably a gross understatement. This little catholic school has (literally) dozens of state and national championship sports teams and their athletic director has won national AD of the year, multiple times. The campus was VERY impressive. Bleachers on both sides of a turfed football field ringed by a first class track. It was clean and well organized and intimidating. Spencer went quiet as we walked across their vast common area, lined with big mature trees. A beautiful place.
We won the game, but the coach wasn't super pleased with the team. I anticipate a tough practice tonight...
I, on the other hand, was pretty darn pleased with my son's contributions. He got the start at defensive end and the coaches left him in for the whole game. He's also on the kickoff team. Special teams!! This is a significant improvement over his bench-warmer status last year. We do have a couple of kids hurt, so I'm not sure if he will start when they come back, but I do know already that this is going to be a very different experience for him than last year. I won't say a better one, because he learned an awful lot about himself last year. But it's going to be fun! His regular season starts next weekend.
The Ohio State regular season starts THIS Saturday! Hooray!! I'm so excited to get to see some college football again. And a long, holiday weekend is icing on the cake.
