|Raymond about to score the first touchdown of his high school career|
Football is one of the only sports that I like to watch but not play. The time of year is perfect, especially at the beginning of the season where the nights are just beginning to cool. I love the crowds of familiar people outside, the visiting and how excited everyone for the players to do well. It's one of those first signs that seasons are shifting, that we're ready to start something new.
I love track for all the same reasons. Never really found any events I enjoyed, but I always loved that hanging around in between events in the perfect springtime weather with people you like to have a reason to hang around with. After long winters of cold and snow and being inside way too much, it's a perfect way to spend springtime afternoons. (Almost as good as actually playing softball on one of those perfect days!)
