    Ok, you motivated me to shoot a game.

    Number 10 is a neighbor. Friday night glory...he lead them down the field to score with 7 seconds to go for the win.

    Sunday he falls back to earth...he will be mowing my yard.

    Yesterday was a killer . . . again.
    JV game was 98F, but with a slight breeze.
    Var was better, once the sun went down.

    Most of the yearbook students came out to shoot :)
    Some of them got GOOD pics. Have to see the pics of the others, but I think they did well.
    And one of the YB students, on the team, scored a TD :D Now to see who else got pics of his TD run.

    I find these action photos impressive, extremely good in terms of format and sharpness. Very nice to look at, in Europe we're mainly "soccer minded" and that branch of sport is called "voetbal" in Dutch and believe it or not is pronounced as: football. Yes, it can happen!

    Not to worry, a really good sports photo transcends the sport in the image to express something about our humanity.

    Yes, I have learned that sometimes I need to say "American football," to not get it confused with soccer, in this kind of world-wide forum.

    In my experience, soccer has picked up in popularity a LOT. I think it is because the smaller and thinner kids have a better chance, than in football.
    The other factor is something my teacher friend told me. Football is having trouble getting players. Because of more awareness of head/brain injuries, parents are not allowing their kids to play football.

    Although I can't help but think that the soccer ball coming down on a soccer players head, from a long high kick has to be doing a similar effect to the brain. I have a photo of a ball/head hit, and you can see the grimace on the face of the kid. It looks like it HURT.

    So you can see how a sentence I intended in the context as funny isn't understood that way in another language, sorry to all of you. I'm impressed by the technical quality of the photos and therefore have nothing to complain about, but the quirk I make isn't picked up, well, doesn't matter, better luck next time! (I removed the sentence in my post, btw)

    I understand your confusion about American Football and thought your post made a valid point.
