I'm so glad that these little Knuckleheads still think that it's just a game. I love that they're always smiling and having fun no matter what the scoreboard says. If you look closely you'll see all the empty bleachers around them. We have to sit by ourselves when our team isn't doing so well. I don't want them to see all the people screaming at our players and saying bad things about their Daddy. Mostly, I don't want them to see Mama punch somebody in the face for saying bad things about Daddy and the team that she loves so much. (I wouldn't really do that, but sometimes I'd like to)! ;-) Most people just don't get that it's not just a game, football is a big business andit's what puts food on our table and shoes on our feet. My husband and his team work long, hard hours and put in more blood, sweat and tears than most people could ever imagine. The coaches go out there and put their jobs on the line every Saturday and the players are fighting for their futures.
So no it's not just a game, but for now I'm okay with my Knuckleheads thinking it is.
