Hope this keeps going
J. Patrick Reilly

I was thinking about my senior granddaughter at last Friday's last home football game for the Dodgers. No, she wasn't playing on the football team or playing in the band. Rather she was helping the Dance Team turn in a good performance.
As I watched I realize the dance team members have to work hard and be in shape to go through the moves and the steps. I know they practice all week to perfect their routines and look forward to performing under Friday Night Lights.
In some ways they have the best of all worlds. They are in a sport, but don't have to compete against other players or teams. They do, however, have to compete with themselves as they get out there and perform.
Competitive athletics are not for everyone, so maybe that is one of the key roles for the dance team. Perform at your best, enjoy your teammates and have fun.
I will miss my granddaughter performing with the dance team, but whoever is dancing out on the field will be fun to watch because they like what they are doing and are having fun.
