Fall? Already?

To me football always means fall is coming and fast!
I am not sure I am ready for this.
Time just marches on!
So my boy, Chad is the center. For those of you who are
not football people, the center is the player that sets the plays
in motion. Well kinda, he passes the ball through his
legs to the quarterback. Chad says some QB's
are much less "touchy" then other. He hates this one
back up QB because in Chad's words "he touches my stuff
way too much". Not sure what to say to that.
Ok, here is the thing. I can never get a good picture of Chad
playing. He is in line with the offense, hidden behind
all the big boys. But in front of the QB. Well and as soon as
the ball moves the other team jumps at the QB, and inevitably
Chad because he is in front of the QB. So Chad has to
snap the ball then instantly block for the QB. He has bruises all over
his right forearm because he has to block with his left hand
and his right forearm. So here is the best picture so far this
year, see his right arm, with the pad? That's my son!!
Now all this is lovely..but when my husband,
who coaches, yells "WHO LOVES FOOTBALL?"
Chad is the loudest to respond..
"I DO!"
What better way to spend a Saturday morning really?
