PeeWee Football

The Old Salt started playing football in the sixth grade and played every year through high school.  He even played on a team after high school that played a circuit that included playing prison teams in Oklahoma.  If the stories I hear are true he was a over achiever who managed to make the team every year in spite of being the smallest lineman in his conference.  

Needless to say he still likes football.  I have a nephew who has been playing since he was on the pee wee leagues and is now on his high school team.  The Old Salt has been keeping tabs on my nephew ever since we married and we occasionally go watch him play.   

Recently, we were passing the junior high school and noticed one of the pee wee teams, called the Gator's practicing on the field.  The team's green uniforms brought the Green Day meme to mind.  So we stopped to get a few shots and ended up staying for most of the practice session.   

This stop turned out to be my lucky night for things green.  

While there I noticed new team jerseys, waiting to be passed out, in the back of a truck belonging to one of the team's coaches.   
I loved the personalized license plate.  

I also spotted this green mini cooper belonging to one of the parents in the parking lot.  

I even captured a green cell phone   belonging to one of the Dads.

Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.
