You probably heard that WE WON! The Seahawks, that is.
This morning we went to watch son Jake play what soccer purists call "real football".
It has been a long time since we watched our guy play soccer. All through his school years we were at every match; Tom was Coach and I was Soccer Mom. Today was unscheduled, a gift of a day, which I will explain at another time, so we decided it was time to go to see Jake play. At age 39 he thinks his playing days might be numbered, but he still loves the game.
That's Jake, #22.
He's usually part of the defense, trying to prevent the other team from scoring.
These are not boys, and you'd better know what you are doing and what you can get away with without getting hurt.
His eyes are everywhere, watching the ball, the placement of his teammates, and the guy he is defending.
Jake's team won 4-3. Another victory!
And Tom and I had fun too!
