Little League football

Dad v. The End of Season Two

This weekend is the annual Little League Football banquet.  A day to celebrate what our kids accomplished.  A day to expound on how much they’ve grown.  A single day to rejoice…that it’s over for another year. That I will not be out in the cold watching my boy sit on the sidelines while it’s colder … Continue reading »

Dad v. Parenting in the Elements

Being the parent of a little league football player in October and November can be rough.  Oh, sure, it’s rough for the kids to be out there in the cold playing their hearts out…but we’re sitting on our butts in the cold and rain and wind.  Seriously, there are times it’s no fun at all, … Continue reading »

Dad v. Waiting with the Bruiser

For two years I’ve been trying to get a tackle out of my boy in practice-let alone in a game.  He spends most plays that he’s able to be out on the field for backpedaling.  No matter how much I talk to him. Last season he pretty much only played on offense.  In fact, the … Continue reading »

Dad v. That Dude on the sidelines

Hey everybody. I’ve been away for a while.  Just watching the boy play football and trying to figure out how to make money online.  I know it can be done…just trying to figure it all out. What I’ve also been doing is fulfilling our Little League Football family commitments.  You know, those things that everybody … Continue reading »

Dad v. Becoming Klingon

What’s a quarterback and where can I kill one? Enough…is never enough. –Ancient Klingon Proverb I don’t want to be a Klingon.  I just want that fact out there. But I feel like one every afternoon as I sit in my folding chair and watch the boy try to play football.  I feel like getting … Continue reading »

Dad v. Year 2

This is what he looked like last year  Last year I chronicled Noah’s first year of little league football.  There were a lot of ups and downs. All things considered, he did very, very well.  He was pushed and guided through a hundred different concepts that were entirely new and alien to him. First there … Continue reading »

Dad v. Wait ’til Next year!

He taught the coaches too. This past Sunday was the end of the season banquet for Little League Football.  It was a day to celebrate the Cheerleader’s coaching, the Goob’s cheering, and, perhaps most of all, Noah’s completion of his first full season of football. At times, it was a trying year…especially for me. But … Continue reading »

Dad v. The Tight Rope

Noah’s in the middle there, he’s the one standing up “catching” a block… Geting a soft, timid, skinny autistic boy to play football may be, in and of itself, a major accomplishment…maybe…but now that we have him suiting up every day, now that he participates, now that he runs every day and doesn’t dog it … Continue reading »
