football game #2

Quinton's team played again tonight.

I went to watch and arrived early enough that I could tell my boy what I thought of his debut performance. I told him that I didn't like it. I told him that football was NOT like soccer. I told him that you don't play football with a smile on your face. I told him that you have to be FIRED UP and ANGRY to play football.

I told him that he needed to HIT SOMEBODY, anybody, every chance he got. I told him to pretend that he was playing against me and Jack and Steven and the Beecher boys when he was on the field. If he hit those guys in the red jerseys on the other team the way he hit US, he would be a real football player. I banged on his helmet and shoulder pads with my fists. "Get FIRED UP!" I demanded.

"Daddy, I AM fired up! I'm gonna HIT somebody!" he responded.

And that little boy, the smallest player on the field, DID. He made two individual tackles and was involved seriously in a couple of gang-tackles, one of which made someone in the stands say, "Look at that little #30. He sure likes to mix it up, doesn't he?" My heart soared like a hawk.

There is one funny thing about tonight. His mama wasn't there. She's off on another high-octane business trip to parts unknown, so "Granny" brought Quinton to the game tonight. And my boy played his ass off.

I KNEW he had it in him.


Maybe since you raised him to be polite to strangers (and I know you did, because you are a Southern gentleman and will make sure Quinton is, too) he didn't want to hit kids he didn't know.

Or, maybe he just needed your guidance.

I'm glad showed you what he's got inside.

Yay! I'm glad it worked out . . . I am interested in hearing what happens the next time BC is there, though.

Kickass. One less liberal in the world.

I'll bet you some of the shine I've got left that when the BC shows up at a game, he stops hitting. Bet. (This is Kentucky likur. I need some Georgia Likur to start a collection.)

Congrats!!! Perhaps we can recruit him to Alabama?

A story:
"Say Jason, I've heard you talk about your daughters and I was wondering, did they get down on you in their teenage years?"
"Yes, one decided I just wasn't cool around the time she turned 13 the other waited till she was 16. She never wanted to do something the same as her sister."
"When did they decide you weren't an such a bad dude after all?"
"Around 21 and 22 ."
"Oh, right after they left college and had to deal with the real world on their own for a while?"

You're wrong, Phelps. Now that he's got a taste of it, he will never go back.

If Quinton gets sick of football, point him at rugby.

No padding or helmets, not many timeouts and he'll be fitter than any other himan being on his block.

Just a thought.

Yaaaaaaay for Quinton. Maybe he doesn't want to be too rough in front of his mama? Tell her to stay home!
