Powder Puff MVP

Tonight, after Divine Service, I headed over to the high school football field to watch my daughter, Sarah, play in the annual Homecoming week "Powder Puff" game. It is always Senior-Sophomore vs. Junior-Freshman, and unless it is simply impossible for the refs (Varsity Football coaches) to fix things, the Senior-Sophomore team always wins. It is actually a lot of fun to watch, even if the outcome is a foregone conclusion (in most cases).

I thought that tonight was going to be one of those times when it was going to be impossible for the refs to see to it that the Senior-Sophomore team won. The Junior-Freshman team was winning 24-20 with 30 seconds left in the game. The Senior-Sophomore team had the ball, 4th down and goal from the 15-yard line (this was the third "4th down" in a row, as the refs called penalties on the two previous 4th downs to keep the Senior-Sophomore team's hopes alive). The quarterback dropped back and threw the ball into the corner of the end zone and there was Senior Sarah making the game-winning catch. The crowd went wild! Woo-hoo!!!

This was Sarah's third TD reception in the game. I think it's safe to say that she was the MVP. I was a proud poppa, to say the least. Way to go, Sarah!
