Last night was the final time I was able to enjoy seeing my daughter compete in a high school athletic event: The Seniors vs. Juniors Powderpuff Football Game.
Bethany was a wide receiver for the seniors and also played defense.
For those who don’t know, Powderpuff football is an annual event where girls compete in a flag football game. Teams are coached by guys who actually play football. While this game often starts out as friendly and fun, it often turns into a fierce, ferocious fight to the finish.
Yes, there was unnecessary roughness in last night’s game. Feelings were hurt, people were shoved, dirty play abounded. And, it was all girl-style so you know it got ugly! The refs didn’t stand a chance.
One of my favorite moments last night was when my daughter made an amazing, all in dive to take another girl down and the announcer boomed out over the PA system, “Tackle by Bethany! Hashtag athlete!!” Proudest mama in town, oh yeah!
And that, is my Random Moment of Delight for the week!
