Friday night football!
The Atonement Crusaders six-man football team is up and running. And I do mean running! I've been watching them practice, and these boys are excited. Last night we had our first event -- a scrimmage with the boys from Lutheran High School, our near neighbor. It took place on our new athletic field, which by general consensus from everyone who visits, is one of the best fields around. Our kids were fantastic! We even had a for-real "Hail Mary pass" which caused the crowd to roar with approval. As I said at the time, "We've got the Hail Mary... what can the Lutherans do?"

Texas and football... it doesn't get much better than that!
