The fall season has come upon us and in the suburb of NJ that means its football season.
I mean all my friends are playing so why not go out for recreation football.
Of course being the fatter kid you were put on the line for offense or defense.
I really did not know what to play I just know that there was a runner and a guy that threw the ball to the runner.
I mean how different can it be from the same game we played on my front lawn or in the playgroud during recess?
A Whole lot.
Who know the line ( the guys who block for the quarter back and runner) were part of the team.
I just thought 1 guy would count the fastest 10 Mississippi they can rush in and try to tag the quaterback.
Nope they needed 5 fat kids to help block the quarterback and other skinnier runners.
But I was wrong. I wasn’t either of them .
Why? Beasue there was a weight limit and I was way over it.
And after a few weeks I was WAAYYYYY over it.
This was my first attempt to lose weight for something other than feeling like a fat crappy kid.
I’ll tell you more about it in the next post.
