Professor Wagstaff: In case I never see you again, which would add ten years to my life, what would you fellas want to play football?
Baravelli: Well, first we want a football.
Professor Wagstaff: Well, I don't know if we've got a football, but if I can find one, would you be interested? I don't want a hasty answer, just sleep on it.
Baravelli: I no think I can sleep on a football.

TIME:  6:26 PM
PLACE: Catholic War Vets – Football Field
SUBJECT:  Football

Football and cheerleading practice again tonight.  But we had a logistics issue tonight.  The practices were at two different locations, both from 6pm-8pm.  HandsomeHusband had a Labor dinner to attend at 6pm, so he was unable to coach tonight.  So here was our problem…how do we get 5 people to 3 different locations at the same time and make sure that there is an adult at each practice?  Why, we call Grandpa!  HH took MB to his practice, then left for the dinner.  I dropped DQ off at her practice, where Grandpa had already arrived, then drove down to MB’s practice with StellaDella.  Why did I have SD?  Why, I guess I forgot to mention that SD spiked a fever in school today and I had to go pick her up at 1:30 this afternoon.  Acetaminophen brought the fever down and she felt better, but we weren’t going to let her cheer tonight.  Just a little monkey wrench in our carefully orchestrated plans!  After MB’s practice was over, the three of us went to Grandpa’s house and picked up DQ.  Thanks Dad, your help is greatly appreciated!
