Friday Night Football (Ardmore vs Brooks)

Gwen and I went to the Ardmore High School vs Brooks High School football game tonight.  Unfortunately, Ardmore lost 64 to 14 and I have to admit that is a bit embarrassing.


Even though Ardmore was annihilated on the football field, we still have team spirit.

  1. I always get confused when a sport is called ‘football’ and yet the foot hardly features. Coming to Australia as a young boy (1956) I found the same here, even worse, the ball wasn’t even round but oblong. I was deeply disappointed when discovering the ball was carried around by hand too.
    Even worse, is cricket. A game so esoteric, only those born in England understand it.
    I used to like sport especially soccer. Now,when a ball threatens to roll towards me I run away.

    • Cricket: As explained to a foreigner…

      “You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that’s in the side that’s in goes out, and when he’s out he comes in and the next man goes in until he’s out. When they are all out, the side that’s out comes in and the side that’s been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
      When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game.”
