good Touch football in the FamilyGathering league

Good times at the local park in my bro's 'hood, getting crazy with some post-feast football.

An odd mix of participants -- included a 6 yr old, my 26 yr old daughter, who knows nothing about football because she learned all about from me -- i.e., nothing about football at all beyond "Cool commercials during Super Bowl, honey, come see!" -- and me, the only player over age 26. The rest were serious footballers -- teens and my daughter's mid20s bf -- all of whom play or played high school varsity football. Oh, and my prissy 16-yr-old niece who ditched after breaking a finger nail. And then there was me -- the only ol' guy out there. But only 3 of 'em could outrun me. We'll not bring up how bad i was at catching a pass though. Hush now.

Did I tell you it was nearly pitch dark? And that the grassy field was covered in dew? So even the best players spent more time greasing their jeans with grass stains than running.

But we all had a ball (if you can call a football that), trying to not get hit in the head while trying to catch a ball you can't see, trying not to step on the little kid, and trying not to burp up the thanksgiving gorgefest. All this happened while the 20 or so remaining guests picked their teeth and sipped more wine from my brother's nearby backyard, hearing more than seeing us sloshing around out in the dark.

And definitely a good workout. The ol' man done alright, not getting injuries and even getting one touchdown.

    You crack me up! Hardly an old man, and seriously, catching is overrated.
