Valley Champions


Last Thursday Taylor's football team won the Santa Maria Super Bowl, and that put them in the Valley Championship game where they faced the Orcutt school champions (the town just south of us). What made this extra-super-duper cool was they got to play under the lights at a local high school on a Friday night! This was such a huge deal for these kids. Lots of nerves, excitement, tension...

We scored on the first play of the game, but missed the conversion. They scored as soon as they got the ball, and made the conversion. 6 to 8. We were down the entire game. It's easy to look at other parents going crazy at their kids' sporting events and smirk. "How silly. It's just a game. An elementary school game at that." But when it's your own kid... man.

You can imagine how nuts our stands went when Taylor's team (he plays center) miraculously pulled out of 4th and twelve, only to score the winning touchdown on the next play with 30 seconds to go.

Valley Champions. It feels good. Especially since the same two teams met last year and we lost. I can hear Queen singing right now...
