JACKIE DAVIS: Super Sunday: Celebrate and savor!

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — My love for music opened the doors of my high school marching band, and I learned a new level of appreciation for football games. As an instrumentalist, and as a baton twirler, I marched in halftime shows for every home and away game for all four years of high school. There is nothing quite like the excitement and school spirit of a high school football game!

After watching so many live games, and with the steady dose of football at home, I was a well seasoned pseudo-fan of the sport when I met and married my college sweetheart. Defensive end Vince Davis played for the division one Cornell University Big Red Bears.

It seemed only natural that all four of our sons played football in middle school and high school. Our eldest son Vincent (who shares this column with me) even played at Rich Stadium in his sophomore year with the varsity Lockport Lions. Some of our dearest friends are parents we met in the football stands, cheering our sons on — rain, snow or shine.

The ultimate game is almost here. This Super Sunday, I hope you will make time to celebrate with the people you love, and savor the football experience — even if you have no clue who’s playing the game!
