Football Lessons

Aside from learning that I’m not as young as I used to be, flag football is teaching me some other things too.

  • The older I get, the more I just enjoy playing. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t “enjoy” losing, but I’d still rather play and lose than sit around on my rear end.

  • I’ve got “Daddy ears” now and can always hear my kids (even in the middle of man coverage)

  • No matter how old you are, you still have to play through the pain sometimes

  • The guys on the team get it. Before AND after, two different guys initiated a short prayer. I’ve been on church teams before and too often it’s all about the game.

  • Sportsmanship is next to godliness – yep, it’s that rare now-a-days

  • Flag football is an open door for inviting other people to interact with believers and hopefully investigate Christianity

  • My kids think I’m cool

  • I think cheerleaders would be awesome (I wonder if Lora knows where her cheerleading outfit is)

  • Even though we lost, at least we scored an offense touchdown – it’s more than Notre Dame can say (let’s hope that changes this weekend though)
