Sometimes, the idea in your head sputters on the turf.
Luckily, it was just practice. My mind drew up a box with two teams of eight, a 1v1 battle inside, passing out of the box. It looked lively in my mind, challenging, ever-changing, active. I split my squad up and put everyone in place.
The two girls in the middle immediately faced off.
Me, age 8, that is. A Seattle Seahawks fan. Today, we’re going to talk about the Super Bowl. You might have heard that my current favorite team, my home-state Denver Broncos, will face Seattle in the Super Bowl in less than a week.
I chose Seattle as my favorite team at age 6.
At age 15, when my family moved to North Carolina, I converted to a Broncos fan.
