Back out on the field, I have my new cleats, check; my regulation size football, check; even my tee, check – double check. I’m ready to go. And yet, I still can’t get the ball through the uprights. Humbling, sure – but even more, this is starting to become frustrating.
And so, I am even more humiliated when I watch a young kid kicking his football through the field goals once, twice, many multiple times. Seriously? The father is so sure of his child’s kicking skills, in fact, that he is holding the
ball for him, something that my husband is now refusing to do. Good thing I bought that tee.
There is nothing for it but to walk down to the other end of the field and ask for this young kid’s help. This video shows that the pointers her gave me even worked- at least a little bit. On the other hand, I managed to destroy my tee. Anyone want to come hold the ball for me?
Kicking like my Hero
They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks; well I am about to prove them wrong.
I hope you enjoy the journey.
