Big, big football game today.

As a huge fan, well, actually a mom of a boy that plays for the Junior Varsity team, I am compelled to announce, loudly, and with vigor-

Go, Wildcats!!!!!

Crush the Wellesley, um, whatever creature or thing they are called.

Crush the Wellesley Varsity football team!!!!

While I’m on the subject, Crush the Wellesley Junior Varsity team on Monday too!wildcat-logo

Well, crushing is kind of strong word, makes me think of bloodlust. I think everyone agrees that bloodlust is too extreme an emotion for high school sports. Or for professional sports, even, for that matter, in the course of our day to day life.
I hope we can pretty much agree that bloodlust is not terrifically productive.

Boys get hurt in some games, and of course I don’t wish that on anyone, even on one of those Wellesley people.

I really hope those Wellesley players aren’t planning on crushing, maiming or in any literal way, injuring, any of the Milton Wildcats. 

FYI- our football team is not, in fact made up of actual Wildcats, though there are times in the morning that my son is quite surly and his behavior is that of animal raised in the woods.

I’d also like to make it clear- I wouldn’t be in favor of doing any harm to actual wild cats, real ones or surly creatures at the breakfast table. I like cats, I have two cats. Even wild cats are kind of cute, unless they have eaten one your pets but that might just be an urban myth.

Wildcats, play really, really well today.
Winning would be really nice, but know I support each and every one of you. Even if you suck.
Which you totally don’t. You guys are football magic.
Unless the use of the word magic offends you.
You’re really, really good!
Go, Wildcats!!!!!
Play better than the Wellesley team!
(But don’t be smug about it.)

Remember to have fun because everyone knows that’s all that matters.

Love,


From a woman without a clue.
