Well I’m going on vacation for the next two weeks (but I’ll be checking in from home). We were going to visit The Niagara region next week. My wife even wanted to stop in to the CFL Hall of Fame in Steeltown, and the NHL HOF in T.O.
But guess what? I had to cancell all hotel reservations and our plans. Why?? Because my 12 year old son has made our local Mosquito Football team and training camp will be smack dab in the 1st week when we were going to be away.
It’s the 1st organized sports team my son will be playing on. And it’s thanks to a former Ottawa Rough Rider (Wayne Tosh) who’s brains I picked at a luncheon during Grey Cup Week here in the Cap. He told me to put him into flag football first and see how he liked it. Then there was a two day tackle football assessment camp. He’ll be playing on the line because, as the coach said, “yes, finally, a bruiser!”
My wife and I are thrilled.
We wouldn’t miss this for the world.
It was an easy decision.
