Today was the last game of the season for Sean’s football team. It ended much the way it began, on a bad note. They lost again today by a score of 45 – 14 to Benson. It also closed out a winless season for the kids.
The game today was never close as Benson raced out to an early 27 – 0 lead in the first quarter. The Huachucha City kids actually played them tough in the last minutes of the first quarter and the entire second quarter holding them scoreless and putting up 7 points themselves.
The second half was all Benson and the game was never really in doubt. I think I said this last time we played Benson, but they sure grow their kids big there. They have one 11 year that is 6′ 3″ tall – at 11 years?? And he is not a lanky or skinny 6′ 3″ but a well built tank. He ran over several kids when he carried the ball. Sean was actually one of the few kids who had success tackling him as he went low and cut him at the knees though he too missed him a few times.
It also figured that the last game of the season was also the hottest game of the season. The temperatures for the games have been surprisingly mild this season. Today, however, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the sun beat down on us in about a 90 temperature – still not too bad.
After the game, we headed to Sierra Vista for my once every three or four years shopping sprees. I really, really hate buying (spending money on) clothes. I hate even worse having to shop for them. So, I just don’t do it very often. I tend to have a minimal number of clothes and wear them until they are too ragged to wear. That time is now and I am just about out of wearable clothes for work and other functions, especially the upcoming cruise.
So, off we went and replenished my wardrobe. I don’t even want to know how many hundreds of dollars I spent – it would just depress me. Hopefully, I am set for clothes for another 3 or 4 years. Suzanne will likely have to pick up and item here or there, but I hope to not have to clothes shop for some time.
