Does this make it feel better?

Championships were this Sat. past. "County Line" won... everyone pretty much knew they would. This week All Star practice began and County's coaches, because they won the Championship, will be coaching our team.

We never knew who posted that photo I posted above showing the 4th down play that would have won us a spot in the Championship. Well, turns out it was "County Line" who was there scouting our game. So we had 4 videos of that game.

Last night All Star practice began and my grandson, Elijah, plus 4 of his teammates, began their practices this week for the All Star game this coming Sat. Before the practice had even begun the County HC came up to my grandson, (and daughter), and told him... "Son, you made that first down. You guys should have won that game".

So did that make the bad call more tolerable? Well... for me....no. laughing smiley But as I said - officials make mistakes... hated the 'goof' then and I hate it now... but I don't have it in for the official. BUT... as for my grandson... for him the answer is "yes"... it made the loss more tolerable. He was 'glowing' last night when he got home from All Star practice and told me what County's coaches had told him... PLUS... the County players who made the All Star team all told him the same thing..."You GOT that first down".

Sooooo, one more game. He'll miss basketball tryouts this week because of football All Star practice BUT... my other grandson, Elijah's cousin, is coaching so they're allowing Elijah a 'makeup' tryout. laughing smiley Nah, not favoritism... they always do this for any kids that make All Stars.

All Star Game... then another grandson is playing in a J.C. Bowl game.... and that's it for football for this year... well, except for the Rams.... who I hope will start to actually play football. laughing smiley
