REAL Football...

As kids living in Newport News Virginia, when the snow fell it meant one thing: backyard football. I don't why it was more fun than non-snowing football, but somehow it didn't matter that you were cold, muddy, and wet it was just more fun simple as that. I wonder if that's the way these guys see it?

I hope so. Aren't we all still kids at heart?

When I was a kid, we played our football in the street ("Caaarrr!!!").
Our end zones were defined by telephone poles, but their draping wires blocked our "Hail Mary" passes. I'm sure I still have asphalt embedded in my knees.

We played hockey in the street when it snowed like that. Does that make me...Canadian?

Full contact football in the snow on the beach in Nantucket circa 91, nothing better.
