    Smile Stand up to Cancer

    Since last month was Cancer Awareness Month here's a nice story.

    I've been referring football games since August and every couple of weeks we have to drive 90 miles round trip North to a small town called Mammoth to do their games. There is a young man there named Matt who has been going through cancer treatments and is one of the captains of the team even if he could not play. He is an awesome young man, very respectful and courteous and positive considering his situation.

    Well last Friday night was my last game of the season as well as Mammoths so as the side judge it is part of my job to get the captains together before the coin toss. So I call the four captains over and lo and behold Matt's dressed out!!! I almost hugged him on the spot!! Even though I could just imagine what the other team would have thought of that.

    Any way he got to play a few plays and his team won the game even though they were 1-8 coming in to the game. Realy made not just my night but the whole year.

    Just thought I'd share.

    Kids getting cancer = the ultimate unfairness.

    Yes it sucks. The first ribbon I bought with my points was for my disabled daughter the second was the cancer one for Matt.

    They have been wearing bracelets " Fight the good fight #44 MG" all year. They gave our crew one of these at their first home game. The crumpy Ref who does not like any of the coach's or kids wears his all the time, so anybody can be moved.
