Okay, I think you've got my perspective down now and I'll say they do football here pretty well. My youngest of 4 "adopted" sons, Alec, 9, started football this year and, luckily, he's on the Ravens! Daddy is one of the coaches as is big brother Andre'.
I'm not sure why we'd procrastinated about seeing a game...Matt's not into team sports...he's being forced to take Karate finally...but we just hadn't made that step to see one of Alec's games. Yesterday Alec made it clear to us that he was disappointed that we'd never come, so we did it and it was great. They do it up so professionally. The area where they play has several fields and all the local teams, divided by age, are Ravens and it's a sea of supportive purple. Daddy is the one on the left, above.
Here's "our" Alec. He weighs about 20 pounds (slight exaggeration), plays defense and does a great job doing it. Alec getting a little encouragement from Daddy.
Did I mention the ASTROTURF!!!!!??? Or the whole, new nice area with bleachers, announcers, music, electric score board, concessions, the works?
