A Different Kind of Football Game

Jamie had a football game at home this week. It was against the same team they played.....and lost to......last week. As you can imagine, the desire for revenge was great. They couldn't wait to sink their teeth into this team.
Sadly, Jamie called me Saturday morning to let me know she wouldn't be playing. She had been up all night vomiting.....and doing other sickly things.......and was too sick and weak to play. She was very upset as can be expected. They work hard for months at practices to play an 8-game season. It's difficult to pass up the chance to play in each and every game. I know she must have been on her deathbed feeling pretty lousy to not play in a game.
So she spent most of her game like this:

On the other hand, son Nick had emailed the team offering to help with the scoreboard but they didn't need any help in that area. This did need help, however, on the "chain gang". So he spent the whole game like this: (Nick is in the green t-shirt).

And like this:

And like this:

It was nice to see the brother and sister together. Jamie was feeling better by the end of the day and even had a little something to eat. Nick said he wouldn't mind doing the chain gang again for the next home game.
