...A Smashing Debut

With regard to ESPN lingo, I hope to be politically correct when describing my son's 2012 high school football debut at tailback by stating the following...

"Boy Wonder toted the rock for a buck-thirty-four this past weekend, including a thirty yard dance to Pay-Dirt, while dragging two defenders on his shirt tail."

(Needless to say, I took the day off from editing "The Fall," to watch my son tear up some sod on the gridiron.  He made the most of it.)

...catch him if you can ;)

Hi, EL,

It's been AGES... How's it going?

Glad you got to take a break and enjoy your son's accomplishments in sports.

I hope all is well.

I've missed chatting with you.


Carolyn V said...

That's awesome! I'm glad he's doing so well at it. ;)

E.J. Wesley said...

The boy blew up, El! Really glad you were able to take some time to enjoy the moment with him.

He's off to a great start, and I'm really just overjoyed football season has finally arrived. :-)

The Golden Eagle said...

Sounds like your son had a great game. :)

Elliot Grace said...

Hey Michael, great to hear from you! I agree, it's been far too long since we last spoke. Thanks so much for stopping by ;)

Hey Carolyn, considering how hard he's been preparing, his success shouldn't have been a surprise, but we were thrilled nonetheless. Thanks for stopping by!

Hey EJ, thanks so much for your thoughts, it definitely made for an exciting evening on the gridiron ;)

Hey Eagle, he spent the entire summer preparing for football season, which indeed sweetened the pot ;)
Thanks for stopping by!


Nicki Elson said...

Awww! You must've had so much fun watching him. Awesome photo.

Donna Hole said...

Now that's a news-worthy event, and you wrote the highlights just like a real reporter :)

Be proud Dad, very proud.

I bet your son gets hit on by girls all the time. Lucky devil. Tell him to soak it up.

Elliot Grace said...

Hey Nicki, after spending the entire summer working out, it was vindication for him, and made for an exciting weekend for his parents ;)

Hey Donna, ESPN has yet to bang down my door, contract in hand, but one can hope ;)

Hey Michael, he's reasonably level-headed in that department, but yes, he does have a fan base from what I understand ;)


Elise Fallson said...

Must have been so much fun. I have fond memories of high school football games...And love the action shot! Good to see him cradling the ball properly. (:

Elliot Grace said...

Hey Elise, I've passed on the compliment. Thanks so much for stopping by ;)


Morgan said...

This. Is. Too. Cool.

What an amazing shot! It gets me all teary-eyed--oh to be in high school again where everything seems so new and possible! ;)

El-i-ot! I was sitting here about to open up my WIP and all of a sudden realized I was missing my blogger friends. So here I am, stopping by to catch up. I'd love to hear the rest of the conversation with the store owner when you handed her the signed copy!

I do hope she promised to stock a few. I know I would. It's an outstanding book.

So life is treating you well AND you're in the middle of edits, that is awesome on both counts.

Great to see you, I've missed your words.:)

Banned complain !! Complaining only causes life and mind become more severe. Enjoy the rhythm of the problems faced. No matter ga life, not a problem not learn, so enjoy it :)
