44HutHut

I loved playing football.  I loved coaching football.  I love watching football.

One of the attractors to the game for me is the continual re-setting and re-launching process.  In very short bursts the two teams review what just happened, re-strategize, reset themselves, and re-launch.  

Almost always the re-launching occurs when the quarterback loudly marks the beginning of the next play with a guttural exclamation that sounds like...
"10-25-Hut-Hut" 
or 
"Blue-17-Hit-Hit" 
or
"Deleware-33-Deleware-33-Fire"
or somesuch.  

Whatever shape it takes, it means GO!!!!!

Both teams then enthusiastically deploy their very best individual and collective efforts toward the accomplishment of their goals.  After a lot of crashing, banging, sprinting, blocking, tackling, feigning, tossing, passing, catching, etc., that play quickly ends and the process starts all over again.

44-Hut-Hut:  Today marks the day that Moe (my lovely bride of 43 years) and I celebrate the completion of our 43rd re-launch and mark the beginning of #44.  After another very quick year ends, a new round of crashing, banging, sprinting, building, growing, working, buying, eating, traveling, crying, hugging..............LOVING begins. 

I absolutely love being on her team.
