pop warner football  

posted by Michael Piwonka 10:09 AM
Mason was excited to get his helmet and shoulder pads for the upcoming pop warner football league yesterday. He's been wearing them everywhere since.

For the next couple weeks, the boys will practice in shorts before donning full equipment, just in time for the dog days of August. It'll be interesting to watch this play out.

One thing that I found amusing yesterday was watching as one of his coaches gave the boys a quick overview of what to expect during the season. He was sternly barking at them (in classic football coach style), and the little guys were watching in wide-eyed surprise, not sure whether to be excited or afraid. I think it could be a real growing up experience for Mason.

We'll get the rest of the uniform (jersey, pants, cleats, etc.) soon.

random. arbitrary. completely unnecessary. yet refreshingly therapeutic.
