One of the things I missed most when living abroad was the glow of high school lights on Friday Nights (don’t remind my Husb about the marathon sessions to watch every episode of the show by the same name while we lived in Delhi).
Mia, the littlest little, was so excited to cheer with the “big girls” at a recent high school football game, featuring two of the strongest rivals on this side of town. Strangely enough, her little cheer squad has Junior Coaches from both sides of the field!
American football may be a strange sport to many, but I won’t apologize for loving it. I love the sound of whistles, coaches yelling, plays being called and muddy jerseys.
(New to me was this tradition – the cheerleaders supporting their team by doing pushups … the same number of pushups for each point on the scoreboard)
My favorite part of high school football games? The marching band.
What’s your favorite sport? (participation or from the stands)
