Finn

A Get-Well Poem

When Finn was sick for a week back in December, an elderly couple from church sent him the following get-well card.  We thought it was funny that they sent this particular card and assumed that they didn’t get the joke (otherwise they wouldn’t have sent it).  When Lisa talked to the husband later, it turned out that he did get the joke and thought it was funny…which made it even funnier to us…that they had sent it to Finn on purpose.

Knights

Finn’s Favorite Tridge Memory Reprise

Tonight Finn reprised his favorite Tridge memory story at a Midland Area Community Foundation event (the original performance is here).  Below is a photo and video from today:

Youth Football 2011 Week 5

For the second game in a row, the Knights faced a team with whom they were evenly matched.  Unfortunately, it didn't work out as well as the first time.  After giving up several turnovers and losing their starting QB to injury near the end of the first half, they lost 22 to 2 (dropping their record to 1 win and 4 losses).  Early in the game, Elliot had a nice end-around run that went for a first down.  After the Knight's QB was injured, Elliot played the rest of the game at QB and linebacker (instead of the usual receiver and linebacker).  He completed two passes (one of which came agonizingly close to a TD on the last play of the first half), but he had a rough time overall (since the Knights had a hard time getting a running game going or stopping the pass rush).  Considering he hadn't played any QB since pre-season practice and none in the shotgun formation that they're running now, I thought he did a good job.  On one play when they were backed up to their goal line, he called a hard count and drew an off-sides penalty on the defense to get five extra yards of cushion.  I was impressed that he thought to call that play in that situation.

Finn's team lost too…28 to 21.  His TD streak ended at six games.  He only carried the ball twice, so his opportunities were limited.

Youth Football 2011 - Finn

Finn is playing flag football on the Chargers.  After finishing last season with a 2-TD game (link), he started this season with the same.  He's now got streak going of six straight games with a TD run (not counting the recent game in which he played only defense).

Here are a couple of videos and photos.  The first video is the one that features the Finnster.
