In my 20's I loved football. The Chicago Bears. Walter (Sweetness) Payton, William (the Refrigerator) Perry. Big fan. I still hold out hope for the Detroit Lions every season. Really.
I knew I would likely have big boys and always thought I would make a great football mom. Till I realized they could get hurt and would hardly be able to walk on racked up knees in their 40's. So I resisted football. Then I gave birth to 'the jock'. Dominic is always up for any sport, especially football. So we signed him up for NFL flag football this spring. It was a good experience, good coaches and nice families. This is one of those situations where it's important for me to set aside my mom angst and let him take a risk. I am sure we will find a way for more football in his future.
The Steelers had a winning 5-2 season . Dom made lots of good plays.
