Last night was one of those moments a mom relishes in.
Seeing Bryan out there on the football field grinning from ear-to-ear, he just loves this game and loves being part of a team. Their team is 2-0 (that's 2 wins and no losses to you non-football types) after a last season record of 0-10 (that's no wins and 10 losses) they are on a roll. He was chosen as captain last week and it is nice to see him in a leadership role with the younger boys.
It was a perfect night for football--our first cool fall evening and we were playing our cross-town rivals, in the end we won 28-14.
Bryan got the idea to douse the coach like they do in the pro leagues, he got permission from one of the other coaches and gave their coach, who suffered through all those losses with them last year, a good celebratory soaking, everyone loved it!
It nice to finally reap some rewards from many years of hard work and waiting for those elusive wins! Go Eagles!
