Our Family

Steelers 23 Colts 20

A couple weeks back we drove down to Indianapolis to go to a football game with the Somasi family.  This is the fourth year we've gone to a game (Browns in 2008, Vikings in 2009, and Panthers in 2010).

We started the day at the Children's Museum and then went to the Sunday night game at Lucas Oil stadium.  When we bought the tickets, we were looking forward to seeing both the Steelers and Peyton Manning.  Unfortunately, only one of those two worked out.  It was lucky for the Steelers because I think they would have had their butts whooped if the Colts had a decent QB behind center.  I was quite glad we were inside for the game because it was cold and rainy outside. 

Here are a few photos:

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.

Youth Football 2011 - Elliot

For the third year in a row, Elliot's football team has struggled to get a win.  This year they finally got a win in overtime in the fourth game…and it happened to be the one played underneath the lights on a Saturday evening on the field at Central Middle School.  Elliot's been playing receiver on offense and linebacker on defense.

Here is some video from the game at Central including the game-winning TD.

Here is a series of photos of Elliot (# 8) making a tackle on a run up the middle:

Youth Football 2010 Weeks 4 to 6

I never finished reporting on the boys youth football seasons last year.  Here is what I wrote about Week 1 and Weeks 2/3.

After playing RB the first half of the season, Elliot played QB during the final three games.  He played well, but his team continued to struggle and finished the season winless.

Here is video of Elliot at QB pitching to his friend Ethan who makes a long run before being tackled just short of the goal line:

Here's a video from the final game of the season with Elliot at QB:

Here are some photos:

The last game of Finn's season was a special one.  He carried the ball twice and scored both times.  The first one was a short run off tackle.  The second one was more adventurous.  Below are a couple of videos of Finn's team.  The first video focuses on the two TDs.  Unfortunately, I didn't have the good video camera with me, and it wasn't quite in focus for the second TD.  As you'll hear, I get pretty excited during the second run.  Below are a couple of photos too.
