Today was Aidan's first football game of the 2008 season. We played at 11th & Pike Street in Reading.
They got to wear their new jerseys today but had to hand them in at the end of game because they need to have numbers added to the sleeves. I'm not sure who picked white for the color of the jersey, it obviously was not a person who regularly does the wash.
And check out his new cleats! They are predominately white & they have slots on the side so you can slide in these pieces of plastic of different colors. Of course we have one shoe with maroon & one shoe gold. They look pretty sweet. I'm not thrilled with the white, but I didn't pick them!
The whole team did really well, although tackling was a little lacking. I have a feeling that practice will be pretty grueling this week - think tackling drills over & over again.
Aidan had a good game. He had a 50 yard run in the first half on a third down & 20 to go.
His team lost 12 to 7. He wasn't that upset about it, but it did wear him out. He came home & promptly passed out on the sofa - still in his football pants, girdle, cup & sneakers.
