Last night I went to my first high school game of the year. I try to attend one or two games each season.
But football is changing. Injuries to players that are life threatening are making for rule changes. Head injuries and spine injuries and knee and joint injuries can last a life time.
A couple of years back I was at a high school game and watched as a player's leg was broken and turned totally backwards. It was awful.
So why do I enjoy these games? Well, it is a game. I like the competition. I like the hitting. I am a man, and this is a man's game.
So let the games begin.
And, Roll Tide!
