This past Friday was the start of high school football season in central Ohio. More importantly, it was gorgeous weather, the first weekend of school had been successfully navigated, and pretty much the entire ‘hood was in town. The result: 20 kids, 17 adults, and 4 dogs in and around our driveway eating burgers, pizza, and wings. With football in the air, Barrett and Bill got a game of street ball going, which the kids loved. And, shockingly, despite the size disparity across the teams, the prevalence of bare torsos AND bare feet, and the fact that half of the play occurred when it was dark enough that a couple of halogen work lights were turned on to light the “field,” there were no skinned body parts.
