Columbus NC. Polk County. It's about 85 miles west of Charlotte. I love the idea of my son having someone to interact with that shares the same challenges as he does. He is also on the low end, his biggest issue is being non verbal. His social skills are good, and so is his demeanor.
I have a 5 year old autistic son, that is obsessed with any kind of ball. I took him to a couple of practices last season at Wofford and he was heartbroken that I couldn't take him on the field and play catch.
yes I agree that there are many more pressing and depressing issues going on in our nation and world, but thats precisely the reason it's nice to have outlets like the huddle to be able to discuss the more trival issues of the day. Thank God we have football and other sports that provide useful diversion from the many negative problems we have to endure daily.
Some might think you are slightly exaggerating when you said "until everyone puked", but I remember that to be the literal truth. I also remember two a day August practices. There was no reward if you lost. Hell I remember even after a win, the coaches would review game film and chart everybody's missed assignments, penalties and mistakes, and we were punished accordingly.
Just imagine for a moment if Luck played with the injuries Cam endured last season, and the Colts had the 7-8-1 season. The NFL media would tripping all over themselves to constantly remind everyone of Lucks handicaps last year. It is never mentioned when the media critiques Cam and the Panthers. Im sorta glad everyone is overlooking us rhis season. It'll make it that much more enjoyable to witness the fall out after our boys finish bitch slapping everybody.
