WOW... all I can say is, Wow!

We just got back from Tim's first full football game. Last week was a shortened game on half a field and each team had equal offense and defensive time with the ball. This week was a real game.

Tim again played every play on offense and defense. The very first play of the game we were on offense, and they hand the ball to Tim who runs it for over 10 yards. They didn't get very far with that possession and the other team had this one kid who was amazing, so we went down 14-0.

Then on another possession we drove the ball down to the 5 yard line, it was the fourth down and they gave the ball to Tim who ran it in for the touchdown! I was jumping up and down, it was awesome. Then later in the game, they again gave the ball to Tim and he then proceeded to break a couple of tackles and run 50 yards in for the touchdown!! It was crazy!

Our defense is still learning and really struggled with the other teams star player, but Tim had a couple of good tackles on Defense. Then our third touchdown happened when our other strong runner was given the ball and started his run, Tim ran over had a HUGE block for the kid who ran it in. If Tim hadn't blocked him, he would have gotten Dayshaun.

At the end of the game, the coach called out that Tim and Dayshaun were the two stars for the game. Of course, I'm still not allowed to talk to him about it because I talk too much. And instead of being happy about the game, he ended up angry cuz 3 of his teammates got hurt and he thinks that the other team did it on purpose. Trying to reason with him after a football game is not fun :)

Another game next week!! Oh, and I realized I probably won't post too much video, because I start taping a play and then because I am watching the game, the camera ends up pointed at the crowd, the ground, or the sky and all you hear is me yelling :( I'll try better next time :)
