The cooler weather we have been having here in Ohio over the last few days is a welcome change to Sherman and Leroy.
Not only have we been able to get out and have extended walks and work on our carting but the Newfs have also been able to pick up a few games of football in the backyard.
Sherman is a football fanatic. So much so that the football he is carrying in his mouth only comes out in the fall and winter.
He can’t control his excitement with his football, it’s almost like a freaky addiction.
Anyway, Sherman must of known that Sunday was football Sunday and that the weather was perfect for a short game because he dug deep in his toy box and brought his football out to the backyard.
He dropped the ball at my feet and went out for pass.
I threw him the ball and he brought it in for a touchdown.
It was a good clean run and we were just about to repeat the play when the defensive lineman made an appearance.
He immediately took off down field to cover the receiver.
The receiver was not at all happy that the lineman was blocking his view and made a quick move to the right, bouncing off the lineman.
I think they got stuck together for a moment by a piece of slobber but Sherman was able to get away and get open for the pass even though the lineman was right on his tail.
He ran it in for his second touchdown of the game.
The defense asked for the ref to review the play because he believed there was “Unnecessary Roughness” done to him in the back field by the receiver, maybe a face mask even.
After further review the ref determined that the play was ran clean and that the defense would be charged a time out
The defense was not at all happy about the call and was thrown off the field for unsportsmanlike conduct.
