Balls: Prepping for Football Play-Offs
Game tape replaces video games in Mom's house when her son's team goes to the play-offs.
Balls __The First Game
On the field, which was too green for August, our team stretched. Our Trojans looked just alike in helmets and blue jerseys, except for numbers on the back. “I’m watching number 35,” said Don standing next to me at the fence. He was referring to my son, David. When I asked, he told me his son's number, but I immediately forgot it. instead I thought, I should have brought a book. The low sun forced me to turn to our side of the stadium where I saw Tammy perched on a low bench.
