Congrats Travis; I know you've been working and waiting for this day for the past 15 months!

Not-So-Good News:
I guess the far southwestern corner of the state has different football rules: According to the scoreboard, our boys lost last night, 35-0. Our boys had no trouble holding them to a no score in the first quarter. Second quarter, the other team scored a TD. No problem; two plays later, we score an 85-yd TD. BUT....the referee made a 'holding' call. No one on our side saw the infraction; we were denied our TD and the ball was put back where it was, plus penalty yardage. We never advanced; they intercepted and scored again.

About halfway through the 3rd quarter, there was an OBVIOUS holding infraction on the opposition's part, on the same play which we had executed in the 2nd, but wait...the refs didn't see it, and they were allowed to keep their points. So the actual score SHOULD have been 25-6. Or 25-7, had we been allowed to kick our extra point.

We'll be back at home next week, but unfortunately the team we're up against is ranked #6 in the state. I don't think it will be very pretty!

I'm off to go get W; he spent the night at a friend's house instead of dragging him with us. Which was a good call; we didn't get home until after midnight. The spousal unit has returned and gone to try to get a good days' sleep, so I'll be doing laundry and working on Ch 3 of Class Reunion.

Have a good weekend! Did you remember to wish Brynn a Happy Birthday yesterday?

I don't know much about football. Hubby was a football player. I guess I'm awful as I don't even know what position he played. He went to a rival high school. All I know about that is that his school's team and mine were the two worst in the league. I went to the high school football games mainly for the half times. :)
