Friday night lights

Jacob got his first live glimpse this weekend of football under the lights.

The three of us returned home from dinner Friday evening to the sounds of cheering, marching bands and loudspeaker announcements coming from a nearby high school.

"Football!" Jacob shouted.

He's been conditioned to associate these sounds with America's favorite sport from the many shortcuts through the school's parking lot while band members and football players practiced.

He was raring to go to the game.

So, I put the overzealous sports fan in the jogging stroller and we quickly made our way to the school. We got there just in time to see the home team score a touchdown.

I'm certain he fell asleep that night to dreams of thousands cheering his name in the end zone.
