I’ve always been a fan of football, but I have never played the sport. Well, I did play flag football in Junior High School, didn’t everyone? This year is my oldest son’s first year of tackle football. We went shopping for his gear today and I was grateful for the help by the young man who worked at McU’s Sporting Goods in downtown Boise. He knew how to fit the pads and how the pants needed to be tight to keep the pads in place. Anyway, we finally walked out of there a hundred dollars lighter and ready to play football.
A quick hair cut on the way home and he was ready for the 90 degree heat forecast for his first practice.
