Pee Wee

There's something about a big helmet on a little kid that's just too cute!   Pee Wee football is quite popular here in Sarasota, with the Ringling Redskins League.   I've driven by the practice fields many times and seen them running drills from afar, so I decided last night to stop by with my camera.  This little guy is part of a team comprised of 8 and 9-year-olds.  Most don't have the attention span to stand still for three minutes, let alone remember where they're supposed to stand and then where to go and who to block or tackle.  So, I give a tip of the hat to Coach Jeff and the other coaches who seemed to be quite patient, but firm, as they positioned these up and coming players play after play after play.

Cute indeed, and yes, hats off to the coach and all like him. Quite a few years ago now there was a TV series over here explaining how American football works; for most Brits it is as incomprehensible as cricket is to Americans. The blurb for the programme described your game as "a cross between chess and GBH (grievous bodily harm)."

I bet its fun watching them try to play.
