Every Saturday Morning David used to play football with some guys from Church. He LOVED this activity as much as he loved playing with these guys on Wednesday nights at Basketball.
Dave wanted to play every Saturday and started sending out email reminders every week to drum up interest. I saw a few and they were pretty hilarious. Each one seemed to have his crazy sense of humor.
Here is one of the emails he sent. It's probably the last one he sent before he died. I love to read his past emails because they have so much of his personality in them. (I miss that personality!)
The Football email has risen from the ashes. This weekend is not a “go” due to lateness, questionable interest, and the camp-out. Expect more to come. I expect to play within the next couple of weeks.

I went to Dave's blog and found a blog post that he wrote about his Football adventures. Here it is...
A LITTLE SNOW AIN'T GONNA STOP US
Over this past weekend and yesterday it snowed - a lot. But, that didn't stop a few of us (Axel, Josh, Geo, Luis, and me) from playing football Saturday morning. Actually, there were 6 of us because some random kid named Franky walked up to us asking for a smoke, and we instead invited him to play. So, we had 3 on 3, and it was just right and it was a blast!
I love playing Football in the snow. There's just something about it. Maybe it’s because you can get tackled and it won’t hurt as much. Maybe it’s because your face freezes and you can’t feel your cheeks. Who knows???
When I was younger we used to have some great games down at the Rosey. When I was a little older we had some great games on the field across from the old DT.
Now we play at Library Field. I took a picture of the field before we started, but I forgot to get the after one, so I will have to wait until after tomorrow morning when we have the Christmas Eve Snow Bowl. I know that it's gonna be cold, but it's gonna be worth it!
