Maybe it's just me, but we all realize it's just little league football, right? I think there is something wrong when as a mom I have to fight back tears while watching my son play in a little league game. I know that I cry easily (I blame that on Morgan-- for some reason I became a more sensitive, emotional person after her birth). But this game was really hard for me to watch. Ryan's team was playing their last regular season game and it was against their toughest competition - an undefeated Bingham team. Ryan always plays the entire game and is a vital part of the team, which can be good and bad. The first few plays were passes to Ryan where there was pass interference, no flag and no catch by Ryan. Then they tried a reverse to Ryan. He took about 3 running steps and slid on the grass. In the second quarter they tried a pass to Ryan again. He caught it and then lost it. So this was the scene at half time. All the boys ran off the field and Ryan was met by two coaches out on the field while they talked to him about what was going on.
There were lots of tears on these boys faces during this game and I don't think very many of them were from injuries. Maybe this mom just needs to toughen up!
