A few weeks ago Deb happened to mention a conversation she'd had with Drew. He asked her if she thought Aunt Ran and Uncle Kevin would be able to make it to his last home game of the season. And I can't remember exactly how it went, but somewhere along the line there was a mention of $20.00 exchanging hands if we came to the game. (How funny is that?!)
As it happened, the day of the last home game I was off work due to a Staff Development day for our teachers, and Kevin could easily take the day off as well. Soooo...we decided to head out to TO to take in the last home game of the season.
The TO JV football team has suffered through something of a lackluster season - which is to say they hadn't won a game yet. Though we were hoping for the best, we weren't sure exactly what to expect.
It was a chilly fall afternoon as we headed out to the stands. Blankets, jackets and snacks in tow, we settled in to watch the game.
WOW! What a GREAT game! The boys were fantastic, scoring time and time again. Drew played a lot that afternoon, which made the game that much more exciting for us. By the end of the game, the score was an amazing 37 to 12!!
When we saw Drew after the game, he thanked us time and again for coming. We said that we were proud of him and ... we should have come to more games - maybe they would have had a winning record!
