Family and Football
Hello Friends and Happy Monday
I hope you all had a great weekend, the last one before the official start of the Holiday Season, even though the Christmas commercials, parades and decorations are already in full effect. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, Winter does not officially begin until December 21st, but the temperatures definitely stated otherwise…it was freezing cold yesterday!
On Saturday I drove down to Dover to meet up with my cousins from Jersey, we met at DelState for the DSU -vs- Morgan State football game.
Unbeknownst to me, I had a 2nd cousin who is on the Morgan State Football team, Marcolm Banks is a freshman and a Fullback for the Morgan State Bears.
His mother, my cousin Michelle and I were very close growing up but had a falling out in 1990. It was a stupid arguement, she got upset with me because I didn’t want kids at our Wedding reception and at the time she had a young daughter. We stopped talking and 4 years after she gave birth to her second child, Marcolm, she died from cancer. We never made up nor did I ever apologize and to this day I still regret that…
Family is all that really matters and during this joyful time of the year it’s especially important to share the love and have good times. I’m asking if you have an estranged family member or friend, please let it go and make up now because life is too short!
As a DelState Alum – Class of ’83, it was the first time that I had sat on the opposing team’s side in the stadium, it was definitely a different view from the stands.
Fam in the stands!
Although DelState lost the game it was fun and the fans, family, and students enjoyed themselves despite the cold wintry winds!
I told my cousin if DelState lost, I would wear his Morgan State cap in front of a Hornet’s backdrop.
I love my cousins, thanks for inviting me to the game!
Have a wonderful day – Smooches!
