Football has started this week, and we went to Toby's first game yesterday- he is number 32. It looks painful, and taking pictures is difficult when I can't follow the stupid ball- the fakes outs get me every time. Last year he was a running back and made a lot of touch downs- this I know. Now this year he is bigger, in 8th grade he is 5'11" and 175 pounds, and a size 15 wide shoe- I know this is big so he is a full back- which I guess does not make touchdowns because he is bigger and can't run as fast.
Then I guess he plays another position on offense or defense- which I told my parents was point guard and they informed me this was the wrong sport- so I had to ask Toby again what position it was and it is nose guard, OK stupid name- still not really sure what that does but at least I know the position name.
I have had people try to explain the game to me- but I just don't think my brain has room for the information- I am slowly getting some of it though- like I know when our team is running with the ball to cheer- but I just have to admit, I will never be a football fan.
Pictures from the first game below- can't give you any comments because I know not what I do....
