Autumn

Fall is officially here:I went to my first football game this afternoon. We lost, but it was a relatively good game. And tonight, we're going to another football game, but not a live one. Just on TV - OSU plays at 8 p.m. Go Bucks.

Contrary to just about everything in what I perceive to be my nature, I love football. But I had to laugh today. One of my former professors was there with his children at the game, and just as I was walking by them, our guy clobbered another guy to get him to drop the ball. I don't know exactly what his daughter said, but something to the effect of the guy was bad because he hurt someone else. And the prof was explaining that yes, violence is wrong and it's not okay to hurt people, but when you're playing football, all bets are off... :0)

I, too, Rachel, am a pacifist. So I can just see myself explaining to my son someday... "Yes, dear violence is wrong. It is never okay to hit someone." And then cheering at his football game - "Tackle him! Stop him! Go get him! Cream him!"

because I just can't shut my mouth at football games...
