High school football. The big homecoming game. A crisp, cool fall evening. Oops, scratch that last one . . . this is the Houston area, after all.
Last Friday night was the homecoming contest for my younger son’s high school. Even though our poor football team hasn’t won a game since the 2008 homecoming, we had a great crowd on hand to support our boys.
Our Bulldogs have a lot of talent; however, our school district is very tough. Still, it’s hard on morale to go winless for an entire year, as we did in 2009.
Fortunately, our quarterback and our receivers put on a great aerial show sure to please.
Remember that touchdown pass I highlighted last week? Leapin’ lizards, James was catching the football all over the field again.
Our running game had its exciting moments, too.
Of course, there’s so much more to a homecoming game than just football.
You can feel the excitement when the queen and king are announced.
Our school’s fabulous band provides musical interludes from the stands to try to stir up the crowd.
The Angels, our dance team, provide color and enthusiasm next to the band.
Yep, even though we lost yet again (but only by nine points), it was fun being at the big game supporting our team.
It sure helps to keep a sense of humor!
