Memorial Field

I suspect I've watched more high school football in the last few weeks than I've watched in my entire life. It's quite the contrast to all those years of scholastic chess tournaments!

Seattle high schools play most of their home games here at Seattle Center's Memorial Field. The Space Needle sort of stands guard, creating an impressive backdrop to what are usually fairly empty stands (these urban schools have neither the budget nor the fan base of their suburban rivals).

The pictures come from at least two different games. D has been getting some playing time, which is neat for him, though maybe not so much for his mother. Garfield is doing better than we hear they have in the past. This year they beat both Roosevelt and Ballard!
