Football season is an intense, busy season.
It means games on a school night.
It means driving 1-2 hours to attend a game.
It means lots and lots of gas station fill-ups.
It means paying admission.
It means watching games in humid weather, chilly weather and rainy weather.
It means advanced meal planning and taking food on the road.
It means eating out more than usual at times.
It means games twice a week and practices 3 times a week with extra, early morning weight-lifting.
It means really, really late nights for the little Fish Sticks.
It means homework in the van or homework on the sidelines when Fish Sticks want to play and Mama wants to watch the game.
As crazy as all of that may sound, I still stand tall to say football is fun!
(and I speak for all of us)
