interruptions :: family time

I spent today doing something very rare for me--in fact, I haven't done it since, I don't know, my freshman year of college.  I went to a high school football game.  Yes, me, totally-not-a-sports-fan-me.

See, my little-brother-in-law is a pretty good football player.  Not only did he score the game-winning touchdown against my high school (ok, so that's not impressive, but funny), but he was selected to participate in this year's Border Bowl.  The Bowl is a match-up of all star high school teams in Kentucky and Tennessee located in cities along the I-75 corridor.  So my little-sister-in-law came down to hang out with us for the weekend, and together, we three trekked to the University of the Cumberlands to watch some football.

(he definitely caught that throw)

I will have you know that this is probably the first football game I have actually watched from nearly start to finish.  The little-brother-in-law made some pretty sweet catches, too.  Kentucky should have played him more, we all believe.  Then they might have scored enough to win.  Either way, good job.

My little-sister-in-law is staying with us until tomorrow and might teach me how to purl stitch.  If she is successful, then expect some knitting adventures to come in the future, sometime between working and taking a phonetics class at the graduate level.  Here we go!

Glad you had a pleasant time experiencing the joy of sports. It's easy when it is someone that you know is playing the sport. The true test is if you watch an unknown- which for you or I would mean any other game:).
