Are you ready for some FOOTBALL (and an important message!?)

Yep...it's officially FOOTBALL season around here!!! Holden is playing his THIRD season of tackle football for the Pendleton Junior Football League and was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles for his 5th-6th grade years!!! WHOOHOO! Here he is looking like a tough guy in his new jersey (look at the two beaming next to him! HAHAHA)

Holden has had a LOT of long practices after school, and SOMETIMES I get to go and watch (if it isn't too hot). Here is me checking him out before practice looking all big and beefy in his equipment...

Here I am helping him practice his "chop block"

In related news.....

I'm sure by now, we all know that Michael Vick has signed with the REAL Eagles. We discovered a cool post from a fellow blogger (Scout and Freyja) that will send an email to Eagles owner Jeff Lurie asking him to match Vick's salary in donations to local animal shelters and rescue groups!

CLICK HERE FOR THE FORM TO TELL OWNER JEFF LURIE TO PUT HIS MONEY WHERE HIS MOUTH IS AND HELP PROTECT DOGS!!!!

In the meantime...please know that mom REFUSES to buy me a real Eagles jersey to wear during my team mascot duties. Something about "not a #$%@ DIME going to that franchise!"

Holden has the looks of a STAR! I am sure he owes all the tackle-practice to you, Sal!

I agree that Vick makes me ill. Go Colts!

Salinger - I am so ready for some football. I don't have any football jerseys but Mom makes me root for the Cowboys - how 'bout them Cowboys? Dad is a Bears fan, so I guess I have to root for both teams.

I am heading over to that site to sign the petition. I hope the Eagles do more to help puppies and to raise awareness of the cruelty that is dog fighting.

Our momma has wet stuff coming out of her eyes right now. She is finding other dogs and their loved ones are helping to spread the word about the Mr. Vick petition to the Eagles. Our momma thanks you so and so much for your help and interest in this project. We need to stand united as one, loud voice for all of the dogs that are dead or dying as a result of dog fights!
