MVP



These photos are a mite fuzzy, but if you've ever been in a large gymnasium during a football dinner with three elementary football teams, their coaches, and the players' families, you'll know that getting any pictures at all is a minor miracle! The coaches deserve kudos for giving up their time to help these young people learn skills and discipline, good sportsmanship, perseverance during defeat and humility when victorious. I'm convinced that a measure of a country is how the adults treat and teach their children. These trophies were awarded to my grandson, Dominique, who was identified as the Most Valuable Player Defense on the 14-year-old team. He's turning out to be a pretty good athlete. What's a grandmother to do? Brag! Brag! Brag!

  1. Who'd you root for today in the Vikings-Packers Game? I planned to watch it only to be disappointed that the Arkansas television stations didn't carry it today.

  7. :) They don't stay still long enough to take a clear photo of. You must be very proud of them. Sounds like a healthy household to me - it adds interest to be rooting for the opposite team. Somebody always wins in the house!

  9. I watched the Packers game and was disappointed that our station cut away at the end of the third quarter and began another game. I never did understand why.

    I like you post today. Handsome young man with talents.
