pop warner game 1  

posted by Michael Piwonka 10:09 PM
Three weekends ago, Mason had his first football game. After a month or so of practice, everyone was anxious to see how the guys would do.

First of all, I was amazed at how serious the game is, played on a regulation 100-yard field, with officials. Before each game, both teams "weigh in" to make sure all players are under the limit for the particular league (which I believe is 70 pounds).

Surprisingly, two players on Mason's team didn't make weight, and were not allowed to play. The poor fellows came to the game dressed and ready, only to have to sit on the sideline and watch.

Mason's team dominated the game, and won 32-0. Mason scored a touchdown, playing halfback; he is very fast, and once he made it through the line of scrimmage on a sweep, there was no catching him.

random. arbitrary. completely unnecessary. yet refreshingly therapeutic.
